 Subject:  Follow-up to Written Question E-002690/2016 — Clarification needed of economic figures as regards the comprehensive cost of the Gibraltar paralysis for the EU
 Answer in writing 

In answer to Written Question E-002690/2016, Ms Bulc declared:

‘On the basis of a study, which was contracted by the Commission and concluded in December 2005, the annual economic impact of the non-signature of [the EU-Ukraine Common Aviation Area] Agreement is estimated around EUR 400 million’(1).

According to former Commission Vice-President Franco Frattini, the cost of Spain's insistence on excluding Gibraltar from the scope of EU aviation measures is EUR 5 billion a year for the EU(2).

In a report published in November 2011(3), the Commission estimated that the ‘total additional cost borne by airlines because of suboptimal cost-efficiency and fragmentation of the European airspace is estimated at some EUR 4 billion per year’. Some suggest that this standstill over Gibraltar started in 2011(4).

1. Can the Commission clarify and provide us with an updated comprehensive figure concerning the yearly economic damage for the EU caused by Spain's issue with Gibraltar Airport?

2. Since which year has the Gibraltar issue been blocking files in the Council, and which air transport files is it blocking?

3. Has the Commission evaluated the cost for EU consumers as a consequence of the deadlock over Gibraltar?
