The efficiency of European airspace is vital to minimising delays and achieving aviation sustainability, but can we place monetary value on it? A new report from The European Court of Auditors (ECA) suggests we can.
The EUROCONTROL ‘Challenges of Growth 2018’ study predicts there will be a lack of capacity at European airports in 2040 preventing around 1.5 million flights from flying. Such a lack of capacity could mean 160 million passengers would not be able to travel with a potential economic loss of around…
The ICAO Council President emphasised the importance of near-and long-term air transport priorities during his recent European mission.
A strong collaboration in delivering a Single European Sky, and the signing of the Collaboration Agreement, sees the partnership between iTEC and EUROCONTROL continue to grow.
At the 12th ACI Airport Exchange conference and exhibition taking place between the 27-29 November 2018 in Oslo, hosted by Norwegian airport group AVINOR, the capacity challenge facing European air transport came into the spotlight once again.
The increase in landings due to the time based separation (TBS) technique is the equivalent of extending Heathrow’s operating day by 30 minutes.
Voice recognition that turns speech to text is thought to be the answer to the exponential growth in air traffic ensuring ATC systems are safe and efficient while being up-to-date.

Air traffic modernisation is well underway with the development of technology to pinpoint aircraft in four dimensions - latitude, longitude, altitude and time.
Through SESAR, civil and military aviation stakeholders are working together on solutions to enable military air traffic operations in Europe’s increasing complex and congested airspace.
In a matter of years, remote tower technology has re-written the rulebook on air traffic control. Initially conceived as a smart, safe and sustainable solution for airports with very low traffic density, remote towers are now becoming a reality at airports with significantly higher traffic movements, says Florian Guillermet, Executive…
With air traffic set to double over the next 20 years, airport operations are becoming stretched and airports are turning to technology to ensure efficiency isn’t affected. Drawing upon the knowledge of regulators, airports and ANSPs, International Airport Review’s Guide To… Remote Digital Towers will reveal the benefits of one…
The founding members of the iTEC Collaboration and the Eurocontrol Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) will jointly develop the Interoperability (IOP) components that support exchanges of flight trajectory information.
The RETINA “Resilient Synthetic Vision for Advanced Control Tower Air Navigation Service Provision” is a research and innovation project that deals with the development of innovative tools for the airport control tower. The project grabs the idea of augmented vision and investigates its application to the on-site control towers.
