Issue 5 2011  •  5 October 2011  •  Mike Ambrose, Director General of the European Regional Airlines Association

The future economic and social wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of European citizens living in the EU’s peripheral and regional communities will be put at risk if certain theoretical economists convince the European Commission of the need to revise the existing airport slot allocation regulation.There is no denying that Europe has a problem with limited airport capacity due to lack of slots at some airports. The European Commission is happy to pour billions of Euros into new high speed rail projects. However, its solution for congested airports is not to encourage investment in additional airport capacity but to manipulate the use of existing capacity. It would re-arrange the use of the same number of ‘slots’ in favour of the carriers using the largest aircraft and those airlines most able to afford the additional cost burdens.
