Cutting airport management costs, increasing the number of flights that can land in low visibility, as well as safer management of aircraft movements, are just some of the benefits of the five projects that won this year’s Single European Sky Awards.
The winners were chosen among 36 applications and 35 countries around the world. The Commission set out to find the best projects that help modernise EU Air Traffic Management (ATM). ATM is a key milestone on the journey to reach the final destination: completing the Single European Sky.
The awards were delivered by Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc, at the World Air Traffic Management Conference and Exhibition, in Madrid. She stated “all of the nominated projects are the result of innovative and fruitful collaboration and co-creation, involving over 90 companies and institutions. Whether they won or not, all projects submitted this year contribute to making our aviation system safer and more sustainable as well as globally competitive, while meeting the needs of our citizens.”
