High-level experts call for more performance-driven air traffic management

According to the EU Press Room, “The high-level group on the future aviation regulatory framework delivered yesterday its long-awaited report to European Commission Vice-President Barrot. The group has come up with a list of ten recommendations and a roadmap with concrete measures on how to boost performance of the air traffic management system. Improvements can only be achieved through strong performance regulation, where market forces fail, and changing the governance structures, so as to bridge the gap between decision making and funding. An ‘Aviation System Coordinator’ should promote actions in the field of capacity both in airspace and at airports. These recommendations are already preparing the revision of the single European sky legislation. They will also facilitate the success of SESAR, the programme aimed at modernizing Europe’s air traffic management system.”This Press Release is available in full text.
