Market integration

Regulation 1008/2008 on common rules for the operation of air services in the Community ("the Air Service Regulation") replaced the "Third Package" (Regulations 2407/92, 2408/92 and 2409/92) as of 1 November 2008.

Simplifying and updating the text of the Third Package, the Air Service Regulation now provides the economic framework for air transport in the European Community setting out the rules on

  • the grant and oversight of operating licences of Community air carriers,
  • market access,
  • aircraft registration and leasing,
  • public service obligations,
  • traffic distribution between airports and
  • pricing.
