EU aviation stakeholders sign declaration on future of Single European Sky

A new declaration which highlights commitment to the future of the Single European Sky initiative has been signed by several EU aviation stakeholders. 

The signatories call on the EU institutions and members states to take the necessary steps to implement the joint declaration, outlining their shared commitment to improving Europe’s airspace.

At the “Digital European Sky” conference, organised under the Finnish Presidency of the EU, representatives of 21 EU aviation and workers associations signed a joint declaration committing to a set of concrete actions to finally and fully implement the vision of a Single European Sky (SES).

The joint declaration that was signed by A6 Alliance, A4 Airline Grouping, A4E, AIRE, ACI EUROPE, ASD, ATCEUC, Borealis Alliance, B4, CANSO, COOPANS, Drone Alliance Europe, EBAA, EHA, ERA, Gate One, IATA, IFATCA, IFATSEA and IAOPA sends a strong signal that the SES vision can only be achieved through the collaborative and coordinated efforts of all stakeholders, including member states and European institutions.

Global passenger traffic is expected to double by 2037 – accommodating this growth while at the same time addressing its environmental and social impacts is key. The Single European Sky is an effective way to address European aviation environmental challenges by delivering an efficient and integrated air traffic management system. It will require the introduction of new technologies, interoperability of systems, harmonised regulation and adequate infrastructure.
