The feature article examines the changing profile of Australia's aviation links with its largest aviation market, the European Union, and the benefits of a comprehensive air services agreement between the two regions. The number of passengers on Australian international flights has increased to 23.0 million in 2007, up 6.4 per cent on the previous year (page 9). Growth is driven mainly by Australian residents travelling overseas rather than the arrival of international visitors. The number of international flights has also increased by 2.1 per cent to 120 615 (page 10).
