In the webinar organised by E4FC and monitored by Annette Groeneveld, President of EurECCA, it has been called on policy-makers to secure the core values of the EU aviation industry based on fair competition on the road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic: strong European airlines to ensure connectivity for European citizens, as well as the need for high social standards and a sustainably industry.
"EU Member States should invest more in enforcing social protection, so that existing rules cannot be circumvented."
- Joost Korte, Director-General at DG Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion
"The green transition is vital for the aviation industry, but we must ensure there is political commitment to secure fair competition and high social standards."
- Mr. Søren Gade, Member of the European Parliament (Renew Europe, Denmark)
"Pending air transport agreements should be postponed until there is more clarity on how aviation will develop post-crisis and be aligned with Green Deal measures."
- Ms. Annette Groeneveld, President of EurECCA and Member of the E4FC Executive Committee
