Civil aviation workers.
EUROPEAN Union ministers have been asked to approve new rules laying down minimum rest periods and other safety-related personnel regulations for civil aviation crews. The European Commission has proposed a regulation that would set maximum flight times for pilots and cabin crew to 13 hours per day, (11 hours, 45 minutes for night flights). Its proposal would also lay down requirements for cabin crews, regarding age, medical fitness, training and certificates of professional competence. The Commission says its move "meets the concerns raised by the European Parliament, flight crew associations and airlines with regard to the lack of harmonised detailed rules for flight and duty times and rest periods for crews".
