STATE AID FOR AIRPORTS ON THE EXAMPLE OF GDYNIA-KOSAKOWO AIRPORT
By issuing its Judgment of 17 November 2017 in case T-263/15 the General Court (Seventh Chamber) (Extracts) in case Gmina Miasto Gdynia and Port Lotniczy Gdynia Kosakowo sp. z o.o. v European Commission, the Court has set aside the previous EC decision as of 26 Feb. 2015 in case 2015/1586, SA.35388 (13/C) (ex 13/NN and ex 12/N) — Poland — Establishment of an airport Gdynia-Kosakowo (OJ 2015, L 250, p. 165). However this judgement does not constitute any ground to deliver any new state aid toward the company managing the airport, and such being considered as compatible with the internal market. The article presents the main up-to-date conditions of granting state aid and shows there are no perspectives for further public fi nancing of the planned transformation of the military airport into an airport of public use.
