The European Commission has updated the EU Air Safety List, the list of airlines that are subject to an operating ban or operational restrictions within the European Union. The update clears Kazakh carrier Air Astana, but adds Iraqi Airways.

Commission presents an Aviation Strategy for Europe

The European Commission adopted an Aviation Strategy for Europe, a milestone initiative to boost Europe's economy, strengthen its industrial base and reinforce its global leadership position. These are three core priorities of President Jean-Claude Juncker, on which the Strategy will deliver, by ensuring that the European aviation sector remains competitive and reaps the benefits of a fast-changing and developing global economy. A strong and outward-looking aviation sector will not only benefit businesses, but also European citizens by offering more connections to the rest of the world at lower prices.

EU Transport Scoreboard shows Transport is improving in the Member States

The European Commission published the second edition of the "EU Transport Scoreboard", a benchmark which compares how Member States perform in 29 categories covering all aspects of transport. The objective of the Scoreboard is to help Member States to identify areas requiring priority investments and actions, in order to create a Single European Transport Area with high standards, notably in terms of sustainability. This is essential to the deepening of the internal market and to the shift towards a low-carbon economy, two priorities of the Commission.
