IATA calls for Single European Sky

During the volcanic ash crisis more than 100,000 flights were grounded because individual countries made different decisions over whether or not to open up their airspace. A Single European Sky would put the skies under one regulatory body and act as a crisis management mechanism, which would eliminate confusion. It would also improve Europe’s competitiveness and environmental performance, said IATA. Europe’s Transport Council is set to meet on May 4 to discuss the issue of implementing a Single European Sky.Source: eTravelBlackboard; find article here>>.
