ATM, Single European Sky & SESAR

Above our heads, an invisible network exists. Managed by a multitude of air traffic controllers, it allows thousands of aircraft to arrive, depart and pass over Europe on a daily basis. Single European Sky (SES) aims to streamline this management, improving efficiency and delivering environmental benefits. It is essential that the work of SES recognises the position of airports within this network, and the role that airports will play in helping deliver the benefits of SES. An aircraft’s journey begins not when it leaves the runway, but when it leaves the gate. With this in mind, ACI EUROPE and its members are heavily involved with SESAR –the technical arm of SES – on a range of research projects designed to transform airports’ relationships with air traffic control.
