COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/2012

of 29 November 2019

on exemptions under Article 14 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 laying down requirements on data link services for the single European sky

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 July 2018 on common rules in the field of civil aviation and establishing a European Union Aviation Safety Agency, and amending Regulations (EC) No 2111/2005, (EC) No 1008/2008, (EU) No 996/2010, (EU) No 376/2014 and Directives 2014/30/EU and 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, and repealing Regulations (EC) No 552/2004 and (EC) No 216/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council and Council Regulation (EEC) No 3922/91 (1), and in particular point (a) of Article 44(1) thereof,

Having regard to Commission Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 of 16 January 2009 laying down requirements on data link services for the single European sky (2), and in particular Article 14 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Under Article 14 of its Regulation (EC) No 29/2009, the Commission is to examine requests submitted by the Member States for exemptions from the requirements of Article 3(2) for aircraft types/models combinations reaching the end of their production life and being produced in limited numbers and for aircraft types/models combinations for which re-engineering costs would be disproportionate due to old design.

(2)

The exemptions should maintain the objective laid down in recital (8) of Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 that at least 75 % of flights should be equipped with data link capability.

(3)

The Commission received Member States’ requests for exemptions and consulted the parties concerned. Following the examination of those requests carried out by the Commission on the basis of the criteria set out in Article 14(3) of Regulation (EC) No 29/2009, exemptions should be granted.

(4)

The Commission re-examined the exemptions granted under Commission Decision C(2011) 2611 final of 20 May 2011 on exemptions under Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 and Commission Implementing Decision C(2011) 9074 final of 9 December 2011 on exemptions under Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 29/2009 on the basis of the criteria set out in Article 14(3) of Regulation (EC) No 29/2009. After consulting the parties concerned, the Commission found there was a need to consolidate those acts into a single Implementing Decision. Therefore, Decision C(2011) 2611 final and Implementing Decision C(2011) 9074 final should be repealed.

(5)

The measures provided for in this Decision are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee referred to in Article 127(1) of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1
