About EBC Committees: 
T
he EBC Airlines Committee
airlines image
European airlines are willing and ready to increase capacity to and from Japan, but currently the infrastructure constraints and regulatory environment do not encourage the expansion of services. Moreover, increased security concerns have affected the global airline industry in the past few years, leading to higher costs and a substantial negative impact on route profitability. For European airlines operating in Japan, this situation has been exacerbated by the country's underdeveloped air transport infrastructure and high operating costs. The committee works towards bringing changes to this situation.
