Jet2.com joins Airlines for Europe

Jet2.com has joined Airlines for Europe.
“Airlines for Europe has, in a very short time, established itself as the leading association, representing the interests of European airlines.  We are pleased to be adding Jet2.com’s support to the existing members, as we tackle the challenges of disproportionate increases in aviation taxes and the high levels of disruption, to both airlines and passengers, as a direct result of Air Traffic Control strikes”, said Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com.

Earlier this month A4E has been criticising the continuous deficiencies caused by Air Traffic Control strikes in France, Greece, Italy and Belgium and called the European Commission to remain at the helm of implementing a European Aviation Strategy without disruptions and to the benefit of travellers.

“The current European aviation landscape shows that A4E has defined the right issues to be tackled. New strikes, more taxes and higher operating costs at airports will always raise our opposition. We are glad to get more support with Jet2.com joining now which also shows that there is a joint approach across all business models – from low cost, leisure and network carriers. This will be to the benefit of all our member airlines,” said Thomas Reynaert, A4E’s Managing Director.

A4E has also decided to broaden its portfolio. Besides campaigning on lowering the cost of the EU’s airports, delivering reliable and efficient airspace and removing unreasonable taxes A4E will now also get involved in consumer issues and launched a dedicated working group.
