Traffic Rights on Routes in the European Economic Area (EEA) in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1008/2008
According to Regulation (EC) No.. 1008/2008 air carriers from Member States of the European Economic Area (EEA) are allowed to operate traffic rights on routes in the intra-community air traffic in the EEA. A separate application or notification is no longer necessary. This applies also for air carriers from Switzerland. Until an agreement between the EU (European Union) and Switzerland with regards to the approval of cabotage operations comes into force, Swiss aviation companies cannot be granted carbotage rights in Germany.
