Dear Climate Action,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1) Any and all correspondence (including email) from 1 January 2020 to the present day, between DG Clima and stakeholders regarding airfare pricing in relation to the climate. This includes, but is not limited to, measures proposed by the Austrian government.

2) A list of meetings, virtual or otherwise, from 1 January 2020 to the present day, between DG Clima and stakeholders regarding airfare pricing in relation to the climate. This includes, but is not limited to, measures proposed by the Austrian government.

3) minutes of all meetings, virtual or otherwise, from 1 January 2020 to the present day, between DG Clima and stakeholders regarding airfare pricing in relation to the climate. This includes, but is not limited to, measures proposed by the Austrian government.

I would like to make clear I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis. At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.

To the extent possible, I prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to the address below.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.

I reserve the right to appeal.

Yours faithfully,

Pascoe Sabido

Dear Mr Sabido,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 9 February 2021. We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 10 February 2021 under reference number GESTDEM 2021/0612.

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 3
March 2021. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your
rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

 

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website
usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the
Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may
have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

 

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

 

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.

Dear Mr Sabido,

 

Enclosed please find a copy of our reply.

 

According to standard operational procedure, the reply is usually also
sent to you by registered post. Please note, however, that due to the
extraordinary health and security measures currently in force during to
the COVID-19 epidemics, which include the requirement for all Commission
non-critical staff to telework, we are unfortunately not in a position to
follow this procedure until further notice.

 

We would therefore appreciate if you could confirm receipt of the present
e-mail by replying to [1][email address].

 

Kind regards,

 

Access to Documents team
