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.
“When I took office in 2014, I did so with a clear message from President Juncker. He asked me to ensure maximum connectivity for Europe’s travelling public, a fully functioning and efficient transport infrastructure, and the regulatory conditions needed to promote investment. He put an emphasis on the Single European Sky and SESAR, on standards for safety and security, and on a strong international role.”
