IATA outlines four point action plan to address European airspace congestion

    IATA called (18-Jul-2018) for the European CommissionEU member states and ANSPs to take “urgent” action to address European airspace congestion. IATA outlined a four point plan as follows:

    • Modernisation of infrastructure and implementation of SESAR;
    • Reforming outdated work practices to improve staff deployment efficiency and further recruitment where required;
    • Empowerment of the European Network Manager to plan and configure the network to meet the demands of passengers.
    • Strengthen SESAR’s performance and charging scheme so that ANSPs not delivering agreed capacity undergo some form of penalisation. [more – original PR]
