European Commission proposes open skies talks with New Zealand.


The European Union may launch open skies talks with New Zealand.

The European Commission yesterday (12 September) proposed to launch talks with New Zealand following an open skies agreement in June this year.

According to The Associated Press, the Commission is also currently in talks for a similar open skies agreement with the USA.

While many individual European Union countries have national open skies agreements with for example the US, the European Court ruled in 2002 that such agreements were illegal and unfair under EU law.
