Flying safely in Europe - EU aviation safety and security policy

Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


The safety and security of aircraft operations is of great importance to all European citizens. Maintaining confidence in what is already one of the safest aviation regions in the world is critical to the continued development of the common EU aviation market and to the free movement of people within it, as well as to the economic growth of the companies which depend on it. This brochure outlines the measures taken by the European Union to develop common, legally binding rules for aviation within this common market. These concern both the safety of civil aviation, concerning technical aspects of equipment and its operation, and security - responding to the increased threat of malicious attacks on aircraft and their passengers and crew.
