European Union External Competence and External Relations in Air Transport is an essential guide for all those interested in the development of European Union external relations in general and in the field of air transport in particular. Part I of the book offers a detailed analysis of the EU’s internal and external competence in air transport and related topics, taking into account the amendments introduced by the Single European Act and the Treaty on European Union. A new vision is proposed of the development of external competence in air transport and a new classification of the Community’s secondary legislative measures in this area. Part II offers a detailed analysis of the EU’s external relations in air transport, including an analysis of the Air Transport Agreement with Norway and Sweden, the extension of the trans-European transport network, and the inclusion of air transport in recently concluded association and trade agreements. The many problems facing external relations, and the future prospects for such relations, are revealed. Community participation in civil aviation organizations is also discussed.
