We urge the EU Member States to postpone the signature of the agreement and demand the European Commission to reassess the agreement, taking into account the impact of both the COVID-19 crisis and the current environmental policies of the EU, to bring it in line with the changed circumstances.</strong></p> <p>The agreement, which was initialed in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic, is no longer fit for purpose. Under the current circumstances, granting immediate additional traffic rights to the State of Qatar would negatively impact the recovery of the EU aviation industry, put additional jobs at risk and distort the level playing field.</p> <p>By proceeding with the signature process, the European Commission blatantly ignores the circumstances the EU aviation industry is currently facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the increasing efforts imposed on the industry to further decarbonize in view of the different European Green Deal initiatives. Should the Commission and EU Member States persist, they would, regrettably, miss the opportunity to adapt the EU-Qatar agreement at a time when other legislations are postponed or reassessed following the COVID-19 pandemic and revised EU climate targets (i.e. Revision of the Airport Charges Directive, Regulation (EC) 1008/2008 and EU rules for the allocation of slots). </p> <p>If the agreement was to be signed by the EU Member States, it would allow for an immediate substantial and unilateral opening of the EU market to Qatar Airways, an airline that already claimed to be the largest in the world and chose – thanks to uncontrolled state support - to fly more routes than any other airline during the COVID-19 crisis regardless of passenger demand.</p> <p>Moreover, when the negotiations with the State of Qatar were concluded in March 2019, the European Green Deal and the EU’s 2030 climate objectives did not yet exist. EU law now requires all relevant EU policies, including external trade policy, to promote sustainable development. Yet, the agreement with the State of Qatar only contains ambiguous and non-binding provisions on environmental “cooperation”. Implementing the agreement without comprehensive and binding environmental requirements that would ensure a level playing field, would strongly undermine the credibility of the EU’s climate ambitions.</p> <p>E4FC urges the EU Member States to postpone the signature of the agreement and demands the European Commission to thoroughly reassess the agreement by conducting an impact assessment taking into account the impact of both COVID-19 and the new environmental policies of the EU, so as to offer the State of Qatar the opportunity to bring the agreement in line with these changed circumstances.</p> <p> Contact details</p> <p>EurECCA<br /> European Cabin Crew Association<br /> Rue du Commerce 20<br /> 1000 Brussels, Belgium<br /> European Cabin Crew Association | EurECCA</p> <p>Europeans for Fair Competition <br /> Rue d’Arlon 69-71 1040 Brussels, Belgium<br /> info@e4fc.eu<br /> www.e4fc.eu</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__item"><a href="/post-categories/news" hreflang="en">News</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-media-file field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-media clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><article class="media media--type-file media--view-mode-default"> <div class="field field--name-field-media-file field--type-file field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">File</div> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2021-04/EurECCA%20E4FC%20Press%20release%20signature%20of%20the%20EU-Qatar%20Comprehensive%20Air%20Transport%20Agreement.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=207287">EurECCA E4FC Press release signature of the EU-Qatar Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement.pdf</a></span> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> Mon, 19 Apr 2021 12:10:53 +0000 EurECCA 196 at https://eurecca.eu Letter to the Greek Ministry of Health- RACU https://eurecca.eu/post/letter-greek-ministry-health-racu <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Letter to the Greek Ministry of Health- RACU </span> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="images-container clearfix"> <div class="image-preview clearfix"> <div class="image-wrapper clearfix"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="overlay-container"> <span class="overlay overlay--colored"> <a class="overlay-target-link image-popup" href="https://eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2021-03/aircraft-crew-union.jpg"></a> </span> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/2021-03/aircraft-crew-union.jpg?itok=8xP9LGhc" width="1110" height="600" alt="Access to Covid19 vaccine" title="Access to Covid19 vaccine" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-large" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/536" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">EurECCA</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 03/18/2021 - 19:50</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-mt-pst-subheader field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Access to Covid19 vaccine</p> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-mt-pst-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Honorable Minister,</p> <p>Ryanair Aircraft Crew Association (RACU) represents Ryanair flight attendants employed at the Greek bases of Athens ("Eleftherios Venizelos" Airport) and Thessaloniki ("Makedonia" Airport), and is a member of the EurECCA (European Cabin Crew Association).</p> <p>As you know, at the moment, air transport is effectively underperforming with significant restrictions, and our Company has almost (temporarily) ceased its activity in the Greek territory, as it is mainly active in international air transport.</p> <p>As you know, at the moment, air transport is effectively underperforming with significant restrictions and especially the companies we work for (Ryanair and Crewlink, which is a partner training and recruitment company on behalf of Ryanair) have almost (temporarily) ceased their activity in the Greek territory, as they are mainly active in international air transport. It is important to underline, for any future action, that the colleagues who work on behalf of Crewlink are not receiving any support allowance from the Greek State, as the agency operates with KAD "003000" ("Operation outside Greece") and not with the KAD "5110" ("Air Passenger Transport").</p> <p>The vaccination program against Covid-19 has been started in our country by the elderly category and the health and the security forces employees'. However, we believe that the vaccination should be immediately, and as a priority, extended to the air transport workers, and especially to all air crews based in Greece. The effort has been launched at a panEuropean level by EurECCA to restore air transport across Europe as soon as possible (<a href="https://eurecca.eu/post/eurecca-calls-governments-prioritize-cabin-crew-access-covid-19s-vaccination" target="_blank">https://eurecca.eu/post/eurecca-calls-governments-prioritize-cabin-crew-access-covid-19s-vaccination</a>).</p> <p>Cabin crews come in contact with many people daily, and the transmission of Covid-19 is at high-risk in our working environment. Vaccination of air crews would protect public health, but it would also represent a step forward for Greek tourism, which mainly depends on international air transport. </p> <p>A few days ago we heard the news about the first Covid-19 free islands in our country, in which the vast majority of their inhabitants were vaccinated and for which there is already a strong tourist interest, since they have become attractive tourist destinations. A similar message about a safe air transport staff in Greece would give a significant boost and a competitive advantage to the Greek tourism, which is extremely important for the local economy. We think this is a fundamental act to return to normalcy and possibly have a good tourist season in 2021.</p> <p>Having said that, we believe that your intervention will help to fully restore air transport, which is extremely important for our country in the upcoming tourist season.</p> <p>Yours sincerely,<br /> R.A.C.U Board of Directors </p> <h4><a href="https://www.eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2021-03/Letter%20to%20the%20Greek%20Ministry%20of%20Health-RACU.pdf" target="_blank">Letter to the Greek Ministry of Health</a>(PDF)</h4> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__item"><a href="/post-categories/news" hreflang="en">News</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-media-file field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-media clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><article class="media media--type-file media--view-mode-default"> <div class="field field--name-field-media-file field--type-file field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">File</div> <div class="field__item"> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2021-03/Letter%20to%20the%20Greek%20Ministry%20of%20Health-RACU.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=123305">Letter to the Greek Ministry of Health-RACU.pdf</a></span> </div> </div> </article> </div> </div> Thu, 18 Mar 2021 18:50:40 +0000 EurECCA 195 at https://eurecca.eu Letter to the Transport Commissioner Mrs Vălean https://eurecca.eu/post/letter-transport-commissioner-mrs-valean <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Letter to the Transport Commissioner Mrs Vălean</span> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="images-container clearfix"> <div class="image-preview clearfix"> <div class="image-wrapper clearfix"> <div class="field__item"> <div class="overlay-container"> <span class="overlay overlay--colored"> <a class="overlay-target-link image-popup" href="https://eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2021-03/Eurecca-cabin-crew_2_1.jpg"></a> </span> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/large/public/2021-03/Eurecca-cabin-crew_2_1.jpg?itok=_acWzrYa" width="1110" height="600" alt="Letter to the Transport Commissioner Mrs Vălean" title="Letter to the Transport Commissioner Mrs Vălean" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-large" /> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/536" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">EurECCA</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 03/18/2021 - 19:37</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-mt-pst-subheader field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field__item"><p><u style="text-underline:thick"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12.5pt;mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;&#10;mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:&#10;BS-LATN-BA;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA" xml:lang="EN-US"></span></u><strong>Subject: Norwegian Airline asset’s dismissal and employees layoffs across Europe.</strong><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12.5pt;&#10;mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;mso-fareast-font-family:&#10;&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;mso-ansi-language:EN-US;mso-fareast-language:BS-LATN-BA;&#10;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA" xml:lang="EN-US"></span><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;mso-fareast-font-family:&#10;&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;mso-ansi-language:BS-LATN-BA;mso-fareast-language:BS-LATN-BA;&#10;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA" xml:lang="EN-US"> </span><b><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&#10;&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;mso-fareast-font-family:Calibri;mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin;&#10;mso-ansi-language:EN-GB;mso-fareast-language:FR-BE;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA" xml:lang="EN-US"><span style="EN-GB"> </span></span></b></p> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-mt-pst-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Dear Mrs. Vălean,<br /> EURECCA wishes to urgently draw to your attention the worrying and specific conditions of the Norwegian airline crew employed in their operational bases in France and Italy. The Norwegian carrier, profoundly affected by the crisis brought upon by the COVID pandemic, has decided to restructure and has launched a process of controlled closures of the Italian and French workplaces. It will refocus its mission to concentrate on providing short haul flights from northern European connections, and will discontinue its long haul low cost model that allowed Norwegian to grow steadily over the past five years. The company’s attitude is questionable as its employees now suddenly find themselves without salary and without the interlocutors necessary to activate the state support to provide them with unemployment benefit. We believe that such a situation should not be allowed to happen! It is unthinkable that supposed investments first modify the structure of the transport system of a country, then it emerges that the project can be dismantled overnight without taking into account the effects on employees and customers. We need a law to be passed that binds carriers investing in a European Union country to providing long-term economic guarantees for their investments, on pain of losing equal conditions with virtuous carriers.

It replaces two disputed and now repealed cabin air quality documents (EN4618:2009 and prEN4666) which had been drafted by an association representing the European aerospace industry (ASD-STAN).</p> <p>The new draft Standard includes measures to prevent exposure to engine oil and hydraulic fumes onboard aircraft during commercial flights. The potential for exposure to these fumes is well documented. The issues of contaminated air arise principally from the design and maintenance of the bleed-air ventilation system which supplies air to the cabin and flight deck which has first been compressed in either the engine or auxiliary power unit compressor (APU).</p> <hr /> <p><a href="https://eurecca.eu/sites/default/files/2020-10/Aviation_Users%20EU_Press_statement_EurECCA_GCAQE_F_Brehany.pdf" target="_blank">Upload the full PDF paper /3 pages</a></p> <p> </p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__item"><a href="/post-categories/news" hreflang="en">News</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-pst-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tags/hydraulic-fumes" hreflang="en">hydraulic fumes</a></div> </div> Mon, 26 Oct 2020 22:02:36 +0000 EurECCA 179 at https://eurecca.eu
