Business aviation and access to airports
The air transport infrastructure has mainly been designed for conventional airlines, forcing Business aviation to operate at the margin of the system. More recently, with the privatisation of airports and the growth of scheduled aviation, more and more airports are facing capacity challenges.
Continued access is threatened by the growth of scheduled carriers, benefiting from automatic preferential rights. EBAA calls for regulation that allows Business aviation to access the same level as scheduled operators through appropriate slot regulation.
