: This volume provides specific case studies concerning aspects of integration which have taken place in the air transport sector within the European Community/European Union. It examines both the European Commission's proposal for a Council Directive, and the attempt by the Commission to formulate a Proposal for a Council Regulation. In both these case studies the Competition Directorate of the European Commission (DGIV) has sought to expand substantially its own authority and competence in the air transport areas of "ground handling" and "slot allocation". Both case studies reflect the increasingly prominent role that DGIV has begun to play in the last decade of the 20th century.
