Member Regions 2014
across Europe with an international airport situated within or near its territory.
The ARC brings together a wide range of expertise at the interface of air transport and local and regional policies. A common concern is to balance the economic benefits generated by the airports against their environmental impact, notably the effect on the quality of life of local residents.
ARC works with the European Commissioner for Transport and her Cabinet and the EC Directorates for Transport, for the Environment, and for the Regions.
