ACI EUROPE Activities
On 4 November 2020, ACI EUROPE called on the European Commission to urgently adopt an ‘EU Recovery Framework for Aviation’ and for governments to provide the requisite funding to support airports – and the recovery of air traffic. The proposal builds upon fruitful cooperation with the European Commission services, acknowledging aviation has been particularly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and airports are facing business continuity risks.
