A less naive, more reactive, Europe must have a vision for the future of the aviation sector, taking into account the interests of all: aircraft manufacturers, airport platforms and airlines, writes Franck Proust.
Energy efficiency in aviation is improving too slowly, and the sector is set to miss its climate objectives, a recent study by the International Council on Clean Transport has found. Journal de l'Environnement reports.
The European Union is weighing plans to impose flight-tracking unilaterally in response to the disappearance of a Malaysian jetliner, threatening a backlash from airlines over timing and costs, people familiar with the matter said.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative

EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
