Kommissionen välkomnar överenskommelser om att skydda konkurrensen inom luftfarten och om ett moderniserat #EURoadTollSystem




Europaparlamentet och rådet har nått två provisoriska politiska överenskommelser om lagstiftningsförslag från kommissionen, på två avgörande områden för europeisk rörlighet. En överenskommelse nåddes om nya EU-regler för att säkra konkurrensen inom flyget.

This regulation will ensure that Europe remains a leader in international aviation, well connected to fast-growing markets. This is a concrete sign of a Europe that protects and that will take action whenever other non–EU carriers will benefit from practices that will put Europe’s interest and connectivity at risk.

Med sin ‘Aviation Strategy for Europe’ from December 2015, the Commission underlined the importance of this proposal and has now delivered. A second agreement was reached on the ‘European Electronic Toll Service’, a system that will make all the different electronic road toll systems interoperable across Europe.

This will allow, once implemented, people to drive from Tallinn to Lisbon without the hassle of having to deal with different road toll systems. This will also simplify administration and reduce fraud. In addition to providing a better service to European users by making it possible to pay tolls in the whole EU with one contract and one on-board device, the system reduces the costs and allows for an easy collection of tolls. Furthermore, the European Electronic Toll Service will enable the application of the ‘user pays’ and ‘polluter pays’ principles and thus contribute to the Commission’s Klimatmål.

Transport Commmissioner Violeta Bulc said: “I am proud to see that yesterday we achieved concrete results in two key areas that will enhance Europe’s leadership in mobility. The agreement on safeguarding competition in aviation ensures that aviation can continue to drive mobility, growth and job creation in the EU. While with the ‘European Electronic Toll Service’ the Första mobilitetspaketet is starting to bear fruit and the Commission paves the way for modern European electronic tolling rules, contributing to a seamless travel experience for our road users.”
