Saving the Skies Towards the creation of a secure and sustainable aerial zones

17 giugno 2022 ore 9:00

The Dome, Campus Luiss di viale Romania

The war in Ukraine has a devastating effect on this country, and especially its citizens. As always, this tragic event also sensitively affects the aviation sector, and this in various aspects. Similar to the pandemic, causing a war against a virus, airspaces are closed. However, this time, our sector is more particularly hit by the sanctions imposed by many ‘Western’ States. These pertain to commercial arrangements with the aviation sector in the Russian Federation.

The conference will pay attention to the effect of sanctions on the legal and commercial aviation relations, in which energy supplies occupy a principal function. That function will be linked to the ‘Fit for 55’ package which the EU Commission launched in 2021.

In the afternoon, highly topical developments regarding infrastructure and current litigation cases will be discussed.

Hence, high time to attend the Ninth air law conference organised in Rome - Luiss University.
