AIYON Abogados strengthens its position in Aeronautical and Space Law

AIYON Abogados maintains its commitment to becoming a benchmark law firm in Aeronautical and Space Law. Its position in these areas is reinforced by the new qualification obtained by Zuberoa Elorriaga, partner of Aiyon’s Bilbao office. Her graduation was held last October 25, becoming the first class of the “Postgraduate Course of Specialist in Aeronautical and Space Law” offered by the Faculty of Law of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas (ICADE), in collaboration with the Spanish Association of Aeronautical and Space Law (AEDAE).

These two prestigious entities have launched this pioneering initiative whose objective is solving the existing training deficit in Spain in these two fields, which have traditionally been monopolized by the Administration and other public entities until their liberalization.

AIYON Abogados will continue advising its clients in matters derived from the dynamics of airports, such as handling its legal regime, aircraft contracts, certification and legal regime related to the manufacture and financing of aircrafts, code sharing and interlining in contracts with airlines, insurances, aeronautical inspections and labour contracts, among others.

It is also worth mentioning the training acquired in the increasingly present and relevant space law environment: international treaties and conventions, legal aspects of satellite navigation systems, use of resources, space waste, etc.

The interest and involvement of AIYON Abogados in these areas will be evident on November 5 with the participation of partners from Bilbao and Algeciras,  Zuberoa Elorriaga and José Antonio Dominguez, in the 33rd Annual Conference of the European Air Law Association (EALA) in Copenhagen.

During this meeting of experts, issues related to competition in the sector will be addressed in relation to state aid and EU legislation, the impact of Brexit, changes in the financing of the airline industry and sustainable aviation, among many other issues.
