Maltese Minister for Tourism Edward Zammit Lewis, whose country currently holds the presidency of the European Council, will share his perspectives on aviation in the European Union (EU) during the Opening General Session of EBACE2017 on 22 May. “There are a number of issues the Maltese presidency will need to tackle, not the least of which is BREXIT, which will obviously impact air transport in Europe,” said EBAA CEO Fabio Gamba. “BREXIT negotiations are expected to officially kick off in March, so this will fall under the Maltese presidency.” Read more about Lewis and EBACE2017.
