This chapter focuses on the field of civil aviation where the Brussels-based European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol) operates. The repeated challenge of Eurocontrol-imposed ‘route charges’ on airlines using its air safety services before European courts highlights immunity aspects and addresses the inter-relationship of national/European anti-trust/competition law rules and the activities of an international organization. The reference to the German case law reveals that Solange arguments referring to a minimum level of fundamental rights protection as a requirement to allow Belgian courts to exercise jurisdiction have played an important role in the assessment of the dispute settlement system provided for in the Eurocontrol constituent documents.
