LIBERALIZING SCHEDULED AIR TRANSPORT WITHIN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY: FROM THE FIRST PHASE TO THE SECOND AND BEYOND

This article provides an in depth look at the European Community's liberalization of air transportation. It's purpose is to present and critically evaluate the current state of scheduled air transport deregulation within the European Community. The analysis focuses primarily upon the legislative measures promulgated by the Council of Ministers concerning the Second Phase of air transport liberalization which were published in August 1990. The article first examines the legal framework of world air transportation, then takes a closer look at the pertinent provisions of the EEC Treaty. Finally, the historical process of the liberalization of air transport within the European Community and the prospects for air transport deregulation are analyzed. (The European Community is composed of three separate entities: the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Economic Community, and the European Atomic Energy Community "Euratom". The separate councils are combined into a single council, the Council of Ministers.)
