On 11 October 2012, Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transports, participated in a conference titled "Single European Sky – the time for Action", in Limassol, Cyprus.
On this occasion, he gave an opening speech and announced his intention to present new legislative proposals in Spring 2013 to accelerate implementation.
Since the adoption of the revised legal framework establishing the Single European Sky (SES II) in 2009, the necessary rules required to govern the provision of air navigation services from a network wide perspective were agreed in accordance with the initial timetable. The time for full implementation of the second package has come, with 2012 being a pivotal year for the Single European Sky.
