European Commission Revises State Aid Guidelines

In a press release today, the European Commission announced that it had adopted a new set of guidelines for Member States to use when assessing their ability to provide financial assistance to local airports or airlines without running afoul of EU competition rules. The new guidelines are designed to restrict subsidies to smaller airports and to phase out those subsidies within ten years. The text of the new guidelines can be found here and a policy summary can be found here.

The Commission also announced today that it had concluded investigations into Berlin's Schonefeld Airport, Denmark's Aarhus Airport, and Marseille Provence Airport in France, finding none of the three to be in violation of the guidelines.
