Research output: Contribution to journalCase noteProfessional


Judgment of the General Court in the case Ryanair DAC v Commission. The deferral of the payment of aviation taxes introduced by France during the Covid-19 pandemic to support airlines holding a French licence is consistent with EU law. The aid scheme is appropriate for making good the economic damage caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and does not constitute discrimination.
