The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) affirmed their commitment to increasing aviation safety and building a more sustainable industry during a virtual meeting today with senior officials from both continents.

"The EU-U.S. aviation partnership is a cornerstone of international aviation and has proven to be very beneficial for both sides over the years," said Henrik Hololei, Director General of DG MOVE. "However, it is important to look ahead and continue to build on this strong, mutually beneficial, and future-oriented partnership. Today, we jointly confirmed our very close cooperation on aviation safety. Importantly, we also agreed that the reduction of emissions is the licence to grow for the aviation sector and shared our commitment for the decarbonization of air transport. Together, we will help the sector build back better."
