EU says it needs 3 years to improve air traffic management
EU’s Single European Sky aims to offer cheaper flights and fewer delays, although its timing might be off as member nations’ short term plans vary in efforts and airlines will face higher costs for reorganization.
Excerpt from Travel Daily News
The European Commission has written to Member States concerning the performance plans to improve air traffic management under the period 2012-2014 of the Single European Sky Performance Scheme. The scheme is expected to save billions of Euros to the benefit of airspace users and passengers in these three years. The Commission announced that the plans are accepted as broadly in line with legally established European Union-wide targets, but has also adopted recommendations to Member States for further improvements.
