Airlines for Europe: European governments must act now to reduce COVID-19 impact on aviation

In light of the mounting impact of newly imposed COVID-19 travel restrictions in the U.S. and widespread flight cancellations across Europe, A4E airlines are demanding immediate action from European and national governments to reduce the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the aviation sector. 

Urgent measures needed include: 

–  Immediate passing of temporary airport slots waiver through summer season

–  Deferment or waiver of new aviation taxes at EU or national level.

–  Immediate clarity for airlines and passengers on COVID-19 counting as an extraordinary circumstance under Regulation 261/ air passenger rights.
