Report provides recommendations on how to make air traffic management more efficient

Apr. 16, 2019

The European Commission received recommendations by a group of high-level aviation experts on the future of air traffic management in Europe. The so-called "wise persons group" was set up by the Commission to consider recent developments in European aviation, listen to the views of major air traffic management stakeholders and produce proposals on the future direction of air traffic management in Europe.

In April, it handed over to the European Commission a set of 10 recommendations on how to make the European air traffic management system more efficient, flexible and sustainable in the future.

Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc said: "Due to the growth of air traffic forecasts, we can expect further delays for air passengers too. That is unacceptable. (...)  We know what to do, now we need common and coordinated efforts to help make the European air traffic management system more efficient, flexible and sustainable in the future."
