TIACA welcomes measures to strengthen the Single European Sky and speed up its mplementation
The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) strongly welcomes the June 11 proposal by the European Commission.
after a decade of discussions, legislation and failed implementation, TIACA says it is imperative that the EU and its member states take action now to realise the benefits of an integrated and modernised air traffic management (ATM) system. Oliver Evans, TIACA’s Chairman, said, “We welcome the enhanced performance targetting scheme. More stringent EU-wide targets for safety, capacity, cost-effectiveness and environmental performance are required, in order to ensure real improvements in the efficiency of air navigation services across Europe. This must, however, be accompanied by appropriate incentives and legal penalties in order to ensure compliance.” “The proposal for greater flexibility and industry partnership in building the Functional Airspace Blocks should help create the basis for a more efficient air traffic management system.
