The Rli is advising on aviation policy

The Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management is working on the Aviation Memorandum and has asked the Council for advice. The Council concludes that the worldwide continuing growth of aviation, the climate objectives and the quality of the living environment are at odds with one another. That conflict demands a new approach to aviation policy.

The advice focuses on aviation in the Netherlands, with attention for both the landside and the airside. Inevitably, the relationship with international aviation is included. The primary focus is on civil aviation, including both freight and passenger transport. The advice deals with the national airport Schiphol, the regional airports, air traffic and air space.

The Council expects to publish the advice in March 2019.
