Evaluation on the EU’s State aid rules for operating aid to airports

The Directorate General for Competition of the European Commission (DG COMP) has commissioned to a consortium led by Lear and participated by the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and Sheppard Mullin, a study to support its evaluation of the rules regarding access to operating aid to airports under the EU Aviation Framework applicable as of 2014 (2014 Aviation Guidelines).
