Partnering for excellence in global aviation – SESAR and partners @ World ATM Congress 2017

Jan. 1, 2017

“Partnering for excellence in global aviation” is the theme of the activities taking place at the SESAR stand and theatre during the World ATM Congress, from 7 to 9 March. The activities are hosted by the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SESAR JU) and the SESAR Deployment Manager (SESAR DM) in collaboration with the European Commission, Network Manager, European Defence Agency, European Aviation Safety Agency and Eurocae, the European leader on industry standards in aviation.

SESAR and its support of the Single European Sky is recognised in the EU Aviation Strategy as key to boosting Europe’s economy and secure its leading role in international aviation. In this respect, the successful delivery and implementation of new globally interoperable and innovative solutions by SESAR relies on strong collaboration between all aviation stakeholders and the different mechanisms and bodies of the Single European Sky.

The SESAR stand and theatre will feature a wide variety of sessions, which will illustrate with concrete examples how SESAR works with these partners and with the air navigation service providers, airports, airspace users, industry, the scientific community and staff associations represented through the SESAR JU and SESAR DM partnerships. The featured activities will demonstrate the benefits that this coordinated approach are bringing to airspace users and passengers, and the overall European economy.
