Dear Members and friends, 
 

Spring is in the air and May is a busy month with various conferences as well as public holidays. Nevertheless, we want to share with you the last weeks’ most interesting news stories on our regions and aviation: 

News from the European sector concern the revised EU passenger rights, which might get delayed and Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc writes that the Single European Sky needs to tackle EU aviation policy issues. 

The airports of our friends in Frankfurt and Munich will see Lufthansa start using the new Airbus A350-900 which is 30% less noisy and more fuel efficient. In Vienna the airport is preparing for the future with modernization and expansion of its infrastructure.  

Also on the note of modernization and innovation, Brussels airport is planning a project of driver-less shuttles on the private roads in the vicinity of the airport.

We hope you will enjoy reading this edition, and please continue to inform us what is happening in YOUR airport region. 

Yours, the ARC Secretariat
