Gemeenschappelijke regels voor de toewijzing van slots op communautaire luchthavens EN


Due to the dramatic outbreak of coronavirus, the number of flight passengers in the EU has drastically fallen. While the quarantine measures are fully reasonable, the unilateral closure of borders by some EU member states led to the disruption of air carriers’ services. Operating empty flights is both costly and environmentally damaging. At the same time, according to the pre-existing common rules for the allocation of slots at Community airports, air carriers had to use the allocated slots at least 80 % of the time over the scheduling period. Otherwise, under-used slots would be reallocated to other carriers (known as the 'use it or lose it' rule). Therefore, I voted in favour of the suspension of EU rules on airport slot allocation to mitigate the impact of the crisis and provide legal certainty to air carriers. With an amendment proposed by Renew Europe and a number of other Groups, the suspension of the rule was determined for the period from 1 March 2020 until 24 October 2020, instead of 30 June 2020 initially proposed by the Commission. This period can be extended by the Commission by means of delegated acts in case of necessity.

Specifieke maatregelen om investeringen in de gezondheidszorgstelsels van de lidstaten en in andere sectoren van hun economieën vrij te maken als antwoord op de COVID-19-uitbraak [Investeringsinitiatief Coronavirusrespons] EN


Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative sets out specific measures to mobilise investments in the health care systems of the Member States and in other sectors of their economies in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The investment will reach more than €37 billion after the operational programmes are modified at Member States level. The unspent cohesion policy pre-financing for the year 2019 can now be redirected to Corona-relevant health expenditure, such as hospital equipment, inhalators and masks, support to SMEs working capital and short-term employment schemes. In case of Romania, the Commission estimates that total investment will amount to 3,079 bn Euro.
I voted in favour of this initiative and I would like to see further flexibility measures, such as flexibility of transfers between regions within the same Member State. Some countries, such as Romania lack critical infrastructure to address public health crises or environmental emergencies. To find a remedy for that, I hope that the Commission in agreement with the state would use its own instruments, such as the EIB tools, to deliver on these projects using the allocated structural funds.

Financiële bijstand aan lidstaten en landen in onderhandeling over hun toetreding tot de Unie die zwaar te lijden hebben onder een ernstige noodsituatie op het gebied van de volksgezondheid EN


The new Regulation amends the existing EU Solidarity Fund rules, extending the eligibility for receiving help beyond the natural disasters to include major public health emergency, such as COVID-19 that we currently face. Under the new Regulation, major public health emergency is understood as an event entailing a public financial burden of more than 1,5 bn Euro or more than 0,3% of Member State GNI. The amount of the advanced payments is increased from 10% to 25%, which shall not exceed 100 mln Euro, while previously the limit was set to 30 mln Euro. I fully support these new measures which include rapid assistance in case of a major public health emergency, as well as prevention, monitoring or control of the spread of diseases, combating severe risks to public health and mitigating their negative impact. Romania benefited from the Solidarity Fund 8 times since 2005 to repair the damages of the floods and draughts, it received 127.2 mln Euro of aid under this Fund, and now again it can rely on EU’s help to mitigate the effects of Coronavirus thanks to the decision of the EU legislators to broaden the scope of the fund.

. – I support a EU-long term budget that will not sacrifice funds which provides support for infrastructures in the Eastern part of Europe. I believe that new priorities should not be funded at the expense of traditional programmes that promote territorial and economic convergence in the EU.
