Dear ARC Friends, 

Today's newsletter provides you with a summary of Farnborough Air Show, the must-go global aviation event. In that global spirit, we are bringing novelties from Europe and beyond. Gatwick, Liege and Brussels seem either to keep growing or to recover. Also, EESC's opinion on the aviation strategy complements the one of the Committee of the Regions.  While aircraft noise is heavily affecting residents we see that progress is being made in this sense at Mumbai Airport. Finally, Africa takes the path to a more sustainable air transport. 

We hope you will enjoy the fresh news and we wish you all a pleasant week!
