International Aviation Labour Law
International Aviation Labour Law explores the status quo of the international regulation of labour and employment within the air transport industry and provides a detailed analysis of the regulatory endeavours undertaken at the international, European and domestic level to harmonise aviation labour regulations and ensure adequate labour standards for aircrew members.
Offering an original insight into the regulation of labour in the aviation sector and airline industry, it analyses regulatory endeavours undertaken at the international, European and domestic level, exploring the main challenges arising from non-uniform and fragmented regulation of labour standards in the air transport sector. In particular, it investigates whether aviation labour regulations are sufficiently harmonised at an international level to ensure adequate labour standards for aircrew members. Key concerns relating to aviation labour are dealt with from a regulatory and practical perspective, and the current normative gaps are examined in view of potential future regulatory trends and solutions via a thorough analysis of the applicable legislation, landmark court decisions and the use of practical examples, to provide an overview of the various nuances of the topic.
The book identifies and explore the main implications and repercussions of regulatory asymmetry and highlights the critical role of labour for air transport and how discrepancies in labour regulation may affect the practice of flying and the essence of aviation safety. It emphasises a strong need for international regulatory coordination and is a key reference for a varied audience of students, academics, professionals and rule-makers involved in the air transport arena and for all those who have an interest in the regulation of labour and employment in aviation.
