COMPLETION OF THE INTERNAL MARKET IN AIRLINE SERVICES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION: A PROGRESS REPORT

In 1957 six European nations signed the Treaty of Rome, agreeing to create a common market -- a "Europe without Borders" -- that would allow the free movement among themselves of goods, services, labor, and capital. This paper examines the impact of the Single Europe Act on the completion of the internal market in airline services. It discusses the philosophical and strategic differences that divide European governments and the effect of these differences on the intra-European airline market. This study is of particular importance because of the size of the EU market. The fifteen member states of the European Union represent the richest market in the world, with a population of 369 million people and a total Gross Domestic Product of $7.2 trillion, or 31 percent of the world economy.
