2014 marks the centenary of the commercial aviation industry. Over the past 100 years, aviation has played a major role in facilitating movement of both people and goods and driving innovation, supporting economic growth in most parts of the world
With the EU institutions reshuffling, what do the next 5 years hold in terms of growth for the aviation industry?
EURACTIV organised a stakeholder conference with the support of Boeing to look at the main achievements of the Barroso Commission in the aviation sector and look forward to the next mandate of the Junker Commission.
It addressed topics such as the Single European sky, aviation ETS, support for biofuels, air traffic growth and airport capacity.
- Are these initiatives encouraging growth in the aviation sector or hampering it?
- What could the next Commission do?
