Taking off in a new direction?
The impact of COVID-19 on the aviation sector
The aviation sector is set for significant changes, with increased levels of state aid and public ownership, and firms in distress leading to the potential for further consolidation and restructuring. What do these changes mean for competition in aviation? Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, are the current regulations in the sector still fit for purpose? If not, how might regulators and firms need to adapt to these unique challenges?
Join Cleary Gottlieb & Hamilton LLP and Oxera as we take you through the key state aid, competition and regulation issues facing the aviation sector today, as well as providing you with the latest insight into how a post-pandemic aviation industry might look.
You’ll hear from Filip Cornelis, the Director for Aviation at DG MOVE, and Henrik Morch, the Director of Transport, Post and Other Services at DG COMP at the European Commission, as well as senior representatives from airlines and airports.
