CANSO, the Global Voice of ATM, has welcomed the decision by European air traffic control organisations to recommend resuming flights by 8am UTC Tuesday morning (20th April) as “welcome news for airlines and passengers around the world”.


CANSO Director General Graham Lake said:

“Indications are that European airspace will start to reopen on Tuesday morning, which is welcome news for airlines and passengers around the world. But we should caution that it will take several days for operations to return to normal. The precise extent to which European airspace will be opened is also still subject to individual government approval.

Air traffic control organisations across the globe are working hard to resume flights as soon as practicable and we commend them for their efforts and cooperative spirit.”
