EC requests Poland to establish procedures for allocating air traffic rights.

By bne IntelliNews January 28, 2011
The European Commission has requested Poland to establish transparent and non-discriminatory procedures for allocating air traffic rights between Poland and non-EU countries in accordance with its obligations under EU law, the Commission's press service has announced. As a result, airlines from other EU member states may be excluded from flying on routes between Poland and non-EU countries. The request takes the form of a reasoned opinion under EU infringement procedures. If the Polish authorities fail to inform the EC within two months of measures taken to ensure compliance with EU law in this respect, the Commission could refer the case to the EU Court of Justice, it warned. Poland still has not established such a procedure although the EU regulations entered into force more than six years ago, the Commission stresses. Poland is the only EU Member State without any rules regarding the allocation of limited traffic rights on routes to non-EU countries. tom
