International aviation: United Arab Emirates

The EU and the United Arab Emirates signed a horizontal air transport agreement on 30 November 2007 which allows EU airlines to fly between the United Arab Emirates and any EU Member State.


The agreement removes nationality restrictions in the bilateral air services agreements, and therefore allows any EU airline to operate flights between any EU Member State where it is established and the United Arab Emirates. It acknowledges the existence of the EU internal market for air transport and the concept of "EU airline" in the relations between the EU and the United Arab Emirates.
