There is no single market without a single European airspace

19 Apr 2013
Ref: 34/2013

A single European airspace will not emerge without greater leadership from the European Commission and a better enforcement of EU legislation, said the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) during its April plenary session.

The warning came in the form of an opinion on the Single European Sky II +, which was adopted at the EESC's plenary session following a request from the European Commission.

December 2012 was the deadline for creating nine cross-border functional airspace blocks (FABs), intended to replace the current 27 separate national air traffic control areas, thus paving the way for a single European airspace. However, only two of these are up and running in a truly operational sense, the Danish-Swedish and British-Irish airspaces.
