A recast of Regulation (EC) 868/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 April 2004, regarding improved protection of Community air carriers against subsidisation and unfair pricing practices by air services from countries that are not members of the European Community, is especially welcome in view of the intense competition in the airline sector. The Commission is thereby taking measures to regulate the liberal and globalised market, which is leading to anti-competitive practices. However, in the view of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour (BAK), this draft Regulation falls short in two aspects before it can guarantee fair competition between airlines in Europe.
