Press conference by Siim Kallas on Single Sky - Commission acts to unblock congestion in Europe's airspace

98 views

On 11 June 2013, Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, gave a press conference on Single Sky. The European Commission acted to speed up the reform of Europe's air traffic control system. The Commission is looking to head off a capacity crunch as the number of flights is forecast to increase by 50% over the next 10-20 years. Inefficiencies in Europe's fragmented airspace bring extra costs of close to 5 billion Euros each year to airlines and their customers. They add 42 kilometres to the distance of an average flight forcing aircraft to burn more fuel, generate more emissions, pay more in costly user charges and suffer greater delays. The United States controls the same amount of airspace, with more traffic, at almost half the cost.
