- In the decision to initiate the procedure, the Commission had argued that the term ‘social character’ should be interpreted narrowly and that therefore, according to Commission practice, this term refers to aid addressing the needs of underprivileged population groups and referred to the example of the Guidelines on State aid in the aviation sector, section III.3, where aid with a social character must in principle only cover specific categories of passengers. The Commission argued that in the case of this measure, the law does not contain any reference to the social or economic status of the beneficiary.
