This article describes how smaller European airports are attempting to attract low-cost carriers. After the September 11 air traffic downturn, smaller airports in Europe needed to court the no-frills, low-cost carriers, which represent a growing percentage of the European travel market. The article describes efforts made by Birmingham International Airport (BHX), the fifth-largest airport in the UK, Oslo Airport, Cologne/Bonn Airport, and Marseilles-Provence Airport to accommodate low-cost carriers. The article also describes the importance of the Ryanair-Brussels South Charleroi Airport case. Following the ruling in that case, the European Community took steps to identify legal and illegal incentives for regional airports, and issued guidelines on financing airports.
