ERA’s latest publication ‘Public Service Obligation (PSO) Routes in Europe’ has recently been published and is now available to download from the ERA website.
This document provides a summary of the regulatory framework on the nature, conditions and requirements set out in Articles 16-18 of the EU Air Services Regulation 1008/2008 governing Public Service Obligation routes.
It aims to provide guidance for members operating or seeking to operate PSO routes within the European Union.
Further clarifications on the interpretation of the existing legislation are expected to be published by the European Commission in early 2017 by way of interpretative guidelines.
