The Impact of Brexit on the European Aviation Industry – Düsseldorf, Wednesday, 31 May 2017, 3.30 PM


The Düsseldorf Airport and Professor Stephan Hobe from the Institute of Air and Space Law at the University of Cologne, in cooperation with the international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, have established a new series of events, which will deal with current topics of the aviation industry, involving internationally renowned experts before a selected audience.
The theme of the kick-off event could not be more up-to-date. Less than a week ago, British Ambassador Tim Barrow handed over to EU Council President Donald Tusk the first petition to trigger the application of Art. 50 TEU in the history of the European Union. The next two years will involve an unprecedented negotiating marathon in which the departure of Great Britain from the EU will be shaped.
Few areas are now as Europeanized as air transport. Air transport agreements need to be re-negotiated, the Single European Sky has to be restructured, airline ownership has to be checked – the impact of the Brexit on the aviation sector is unpredictable. The conference’s aim is to start with a first inventory. To this end, the organizers have invited distinguished experts from politics, academia, aviation associations, lawyers and international airports.
