Aviation Associations Concerned About Proposal To Abolish DST Changes

Published on : Tuesday, October 9, 2018

European Regions Airline AssociationThe statement explains that airline schedules and slot planning are based on the same periods as European summer/winter changes over the whole of Europe. The complexity of moving schedules for many airports due to a DST removal would be immense, and it is likely several flights or connections could not be accommodated at all, or at the preferred time, designed to meet the needs of the passenger, and build freight connections. Changes to existing DST arrangements will affect the ability of the airline industry to meet consumer and business needs at the busiest and most congested airports – this impact may be reduced where an appropriate lead time is introduced, but the impact will not be avoided.


IATA, ERA and A4E and the associations’ members would prefer to remain with the current situation. However, should the decision be to finally abolish time changes, the airline community assesses, following a thorough analysis of the impact of the time change on each season, that the least impact would be felt if summertime is maintained as the permanent time.


If the proposal is eventually agreed, it is vital that the change is synchronised across the 28 EU member states and the industry must have time to plan the changes to minimise disruption where possible. Without complete synchronisation of the final decision and timing to implement, the aviation industry will be left in chaos.
