European Air Transport Law & Competition
The opportunities afforded by air transport for both business and leisure travel are clearly enormous and this has never been more true than in the current climate of liberalisation in Europe. A wave of innovative fares and increased choice of routes and carriers has opened up the market place and has forced the traditionally protectionist and monopolistic air transport industry to adapt rapidly to the new environment. An understanding of the complex and varied rules and regulations that now define this sector is essential and in response to this need, European Air Transport provides a comprehensive analysis of the laws governing air transport competition within the Single European Market. The author concentrates on the key competition aspects which influence the air transport sector and provides detailed commentary on the existing legislation and cases while also looking ahead to their likely development as the liberalisation programme unfolds. The text, however, is not limited to questions of competition, but also recognises that this area must be looked at as a whole and accordingly the author also addresses issues of air transport law, politics and economics. With its wide-ranging coverage and detailed analysis, European Air Transport is an invaluable resource for all practitioners, both legal and financial, advising clients in this field and all those who presently work within the industry or are looking to expand business operations in the light of the increased opportunities now available.
