Since the EU’s Internal Market for Aviation was born back in 1992, there has been a revolution in air travel. Today, air travel is cheaper, safer and open to more people than ever before. What’s more, because of a comprehensive set of EU passenger rights, travellers can have full confidence they will be looked after on their journey. This is all thanks in no small part to an EU initiative to replace a series of national rules by a single set of EU rules, known as the EU Internal Market for Aviation.
Competition brought major changes to air travel – changes that have propelled European mobility forward, successfully helping to bring Europeans closer together, and providing solid foundations for more jobs and a growing economy. The idea of travelling and experiencing new places and cultures has become a reality for many people in Europe during the past 25 years.
