Breakthrough in EU/US second-stage Open Skies negotiations
Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, welcomed as "a major step forwards", the preliminary agreement reached today by EU and US negotiators on a 'second-stage' Open Skies aviation agreement. In economic terms, the creation of a full EU-US Open Aviation Area has been estimated to be worth up to 12 billion euro in economic benefits and up to 80.000 new jobs. Negotiators also made significant progress in agreeing a new framework for jointly addressing the environmental effects of aviation, as well as advances in the areas of security, competition, and social matters.
