Peter Bombay, Máté Gergely, 'The 2006 ECAA Agreement: Centrepiece of the European Community’s Aviation Policy Towards its Neighbours' (2008) 33 Air and Space Law, Issue 3, pp. 214–232


The article explains how the Community’s aviation policy towards its Neighbours is embedded in the external aviation policy of the Community, as it is emerging since the Court of Justice ‘Open skies’ judgements of November 2002. The article focuses in detail on the European Common Aviation Area (ECAA) agreement signed in June 2006, as the first concrete result of this neighbourhood policy, and refers in addition to the Euro–Mediterranean agreement with Morocco signed in December 2006.

By way of conclusion, a number of preliminary positive consequences are mentioned, while reference is made to three challenges: provisional application, technical assistance and the eventual integration of the various (future) common aviation area agreements.
