Readers of the Aviation Law Blog may wish to peruse the European Union's Observatory of the Air Transport Market's latest quarterly report, covering April to June 2008. The report offers a concise "snapshot" of regulatory, financial, and traffic data for the European aviation market. Not surprisingly, the report indicates a slowdown in expansion compared to the second quarter of 2006 and 2007. The report further notes operating losses for Air France-KLM, Iberia, and the SAS Group, along with low-cost carriers Air Berlin, SkyEurope, and Vueling.
Previous reports, including comprehensive annual surveys, can be found on the European Commission's website.
