Sicherstellung des Wettbewerbs im Luftverkehr (Aussprache)

  Ramon Tremosa i Balcells, Verfasser der Stellungnahme des mitberatenden Ausschusses für Wirtschaft und Währung. – Herr Präsident, lieber Kommissar! Seien Sie erneut in diesem Parlament willkommen!

Mr President, in the context of increased competition between air transport operators at global level, fair competition, with a level playing field, is an indispensable general principle that the EU has to push for. Calling for the same rules and fair competition for all carriers cannot be labelled as mere protectionism. Just as I have been calling on some European carriers to restructure and to stop receiving state aid, I now call for more financial transparency and clearer rules regarding third-country carriers’ operations in Europe and their investments in the EU.

Europe represents 500 million potential passengers for third-country air carriers’ routes to Asia. They fly to Europe to feed their respective hubs and fill their planes. Increasing traffic towards Asia should be borne in mind when the Commission is negotiating comprehensive aviation agreements with the rest of the world. I believe the EU should link the financial transparency clause in the aviation agreements to third-country investment in EU airlines. If third-country airlines receive subsidies, why should they be able to control EU airlines achieving the same results? This, to me, is not fair competition.
