Didn't know that this was on the radar. Wasn't aware that AUS/EU Open Skies was on the Government's agenda.

Will be interested to see the EU's response as I can see that the major beneficiaries of any relaxation to current arrangements will be that of Australian airlines. All European airlines that want to fly to Australia already do so or have codeshares with Asian airlines.

From the article:

"the impending arrival of new aircraft capable of direct flights from Australia to southern Europe"

Such aircrafts have been around for decades, Apparently someone is mixing between "direct" & "non-stop" again!!

Quoting Flyingroo (Thread starter):

We have some pretty restrictive treaties with some European Countries with the France one being the one that comes to mind. That restricts Qantas to essentially 3 services per week.

An open skies arrangement with the EU would certainly be a step in the right direction and I think the EU would happily go for it. They are, after all, leading the way especially with the US in such things and Australia's current laws on airline ownership if anything would pave the way for it to happen quicker. So they can't really say an outright no to it.
