Switzerland is a member of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a special agency of the UN based in Montreal. ICAO develops standards for global air transport to support a safe, economically viable and environmentally friendly civil aviation sector. The European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) is responsible for implementing the measures at European level. In addition to the ECAC, the European Union (EU) plays an important role in defining the overall framework for air transport. The EU has created the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), of which Switzerland is a member. The air transport agreement guarantees Swiss air carriers virtually the same conditions of competition as their EU counterparts. This is essential for their survival in the highly contested aviation industry. Under the agreement, Swiss airlines can serve destinations of their choice with aircraft of any size, allowing for greater efficiency in fleet utilization and lower operating costs.
