Airports services in the European Union and Poland II – selected problemsA group of researchers associated with CARS completed in 2011, in close co-operation with the ‘Polish Airports’ State Enterprise, a major research project entitled ‘Airports services in the European Union and Poland II – selected problems’. The project was designed as a continuation of an extensive research effort undertaken in 2009 and summed up in a collective work published in 2010 under the title ‘Airports services in the European Union and Poland – competition law and airports regulations’ (fifth title of the CARS Publishing Programme). The research team engaged in the second edition consisted once again of researchers from the Faculty of Management, University of Warsaw, and a number of professionals from the ‘Polish Airports’ State Enterprise. Representatives of the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency were also involved.

Two topics considered in the 2011 project build on the research efforts of 2009: application of EU and national competition rules to airports and regulatory conditions for providing airports services. Completely new issues covered by the 2011 research project covered: regulatory requirements for providing security of airport operations; regulatory requirements for ensuring airport safety and; a comparative analysis of efficiencies of selected European airports (Warsaw, Budapest, Prague, Copenhagen, Vienna and Zurich). The results of the project were published in a book form entitled ‘Airports services in the European Union and Poland II – selected problems’ edited by Prof. Tadeusz Skoczny and Filip Czernicki.
