 Subject:  Western Sahara and the safety of EU airlines and passengers
 Answer in writing 

There are three airlines reported to be operating international flights between the EU and Western Sahara: Binter Canarias and Royal Air Maroc, connecting Dakhla and Laayoune airports with Gran Canaria airport, and Transavia, which has been flying from Paris to Dakhla since October 2017.

When the aforementioned airlines are within the airspace of Western Sahara, or grounded on Western Saharan territory, which EC law and international framework on aviation security and safety are applicable, including in the event of accidents or incidents?
