Commissioner for Transport, Adina Vălean,has issued a statement following today’s adoption of the Commission report on the potential extension of the Slot Regulation amendment. Commissioner Vălean said: “Today's report shows that air traffic levels remain low, and more importantly, they are not likely to recover in the near future. In this context, the lack of certainty over slots makes it difficult for airlines to plan their schedules, making planning difficult for airports and passengers. To address the need for certainty and responding to traffic data, I intend to extend the slot waiver for the 2020/2021 winter season, until 27 March 2021.” The full statement is available online.
