To provide extensive knowledge of the field and share it with our members, ARC participates in various European Union funded projects. This way, ARC and its members stay up to date with the innovations in the field and obtain recommendations for improvement.
Thanks to our European projects' involvement, we have established ourselves as a credible partner for communication, dissemination and exploitation activities. We are actively seeking to contribute to European projects that support our fundamental values and strategic objectives.
ARC key areas: economic development, territorial branding, economic impact, aviation noise and emissions, training and employment in airport regions, congestion and airport capacity, land use and airport expansion, intermodality, surface access, connectivity, decarbonisation of airport areas.
To achieve common goals and address the shared interests of our members, Airport Regions Council maintains solid and fruitful relations with key stakeholders in the European aviation policy-making process.
Due to the focused and driven approach of its Secretariat, ARC is regularly working with key European institutions, agencies and partners. ARC cooperates closely with European institutions, such as the European Commission, the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the European Committee of the Regions (CoR). Relations with agencies and international organisations which handle aviation directly is a priority for ARC. Therefore, it has close bonds with EUROCONTROL, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC).
As a member of the Airport Capacity Observatory, hosted by the European Commission and Network Manager EUROCONTROL, ARC succeeds to emphasise its vision and values in the investigation process to improve aspects of the European aviation industry.
ARC strengthened its presence in the European Parliament by working together with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) linked to all political groups that share the ARC’s vision to draw attention to crucial aviation-related topics.
