Reply to the report of the 5th Session of the European Civil Aviation Conference

Recommendation 427 (1965)

Parliamentary Assembly
Assembly Debate on 29th September 1965 (12th Sitting) (see Doc. 1954), Report of the Economic Committee. Text adopted by the Assembly on 29th September 1965 (12th Sitting).

The Assembly,

1. Having regard to the considerations set out in Part 3 of the accompanying Explanatory Memorandum, and inter alia to the clear desirability of promoting the reduction of air fares by the construction of those types of modern aircraft which would render such a reduction feasible,
2. Recommends to the Committee of Ministers that member Governments instruct their representatives in ECAC to support the organisation, in association with the Council of Europe, of a Symposium (along the lines of the Symposium on Transport Economics organised by the European Conference of Ministers of Transport in 1964) to be held in Strasbourg in the late spring or early summer of 1966, for the purpose of an informal exchange of views between a wide range of experts drawn from European aircraft manufacturers, European airlines, European Governments, and other persons who are recognised experts in the field of civil aviation, on the desirability and feasibility of substantially expanding European co-operation in the field of civil aircraft construction, "co-operation" being taken inter alia as covering proper advance consultation on a Europe-wide basis between manufacturers and airlines as to the latter's needs.
