TIACA wel­comes mea­sures to strengthen the Sin­gle Euro­pean Sky and speed up its mple­men­ta­tion

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.
