Anna Tomová, Andrej Dudáš

Abstract


The paper critically evaluates the results of the European Commission set in „An Aviation Strategy for Europe“of 2015 in the form of the Indicative Action Plan. Balancing accomplished vs unaccomplished tasks across the fields of Common Aviation Policy and the legal nature of the tasks, the paper discusses broader context of the Common Aviation Policy of the European Union in light of eventual institutional and fiscal reform.
