EASA and EUROCONTROL have agreed to cooperate more closely to provide EUROCONTROL technical standards to support implementation of EU regulatory requirements. EUROCONTROL has been providing standards in support of Single European Sky for many years but with the evolution of the EASA regulatory framework into airports and air traffic management including oversight, a closer relationship with EASA is essential.
Representatives from airports, air navigation service providers, airlines and network management were on stage in Madrid on 12 March to collect their Single European Sky awards. The winners have all made outstanding contributions to the modernisation of air traffic management (ATM), supporting the EU in its mission to create a Single European Sky. The winners included an initiative to promote digitalisation in ATM, airports and air navigation service providers who have worked together to improve predictability, and a recognition to the thousands of controllers, pilots and other staff that keep passengers safe.
“Europe for Aviation” is the theme around which European aviation organisations working to implement the Single European Sky (SES) will gather at this year’s World ATM Congress, from 12 to 14 March in Madrid, Spain.
