EU Priorities 2020

By slim majority MEPs in the Parliament's Transport Committee today adopted the Commission's 'better airport package' proposal that seeks to increase the number of ground handling companies at airports.

GUE/NGL MEP Sabine Wills commented: "Several competing firms providing services will do nothing to enhance safety conditions. On the contrary wages and conditions only worsen."
