The Association of European Airlines brings together 24 major airlines, and has been the trustworthy voice of the European airline industry for over 60 years. AEA gives its members the support they need to focus on their businesses and make them thrive, by following all aero-political issues, analysing their impact, recommending strategies, networking with all relevant stakeholders and defending the airlines’ interests in the legislative process, at both European and national level.
Over the years, AEA has developed a strong reputation as an authoritative voice in its dealings with other industry stakeholders, from European officials, national civil servants, European and national media, as well as other international organisations and air transport-related associations. The association is also in a unique position to collect and disseminate industry intelligence that provides its members with an overview of their global business environment, enabling them to promote their positions at national level. AEA’s tripartite objective is informing, strategy-building and influencing.
