ERA meets European policy makers

The European Regions Airline Association (ERA) board has met key European Commission aviation regulators and policy makers for an executive breakfast meeting.

Margus Rahuoja, Director Aviation and International Transport Affairs at the EC, along with a representative from the incoming Luxembourg presidency of the EU, were joined by the Director General of Eurocontrol, the Executive Director of SESAR (Single European Sky) Joint Undertaking and the Managing Director of SESAR Deployment Manager.

The meeting gave the ERA board the opportunity to discuss key issues that are impacting regional aviation in Europe on behalf of the Association’s 52 airline members and over 120 aviation service providers.

Simon McNamara, Director General of ERA, commented: “The crucial role that regional aviation plays in Europe must be better recognised.  This key sector helps to fuel European economic development and fulfils an essential social function.  Regional airlines are also vital for Europe’s network, low-cost carriers and freight integrators, acting as capacity providers and feeders to both the passenger and freight market.”

Margus Rahuoja said:  “The regular meetings with ERA’s board in Brussels are ideal opportunities to gain a better understanding of and build relationships with Europe’s regional aviation community.  This year’s breakfast meeting with ERA’s board has further strengthened our excellent working relationship."   www.eraa.org    www.sesarju.eu
