The achievement of the objectives of the Single European Sky requires stakeholders to work together and attain their own objectives as well as network–wide targets. And targets are expected for more key performance areas. A shift in approach is required with operators working along with the Network Manager, designated as Eurocontrol, to accomplish network objectives.

This second European Air Transport Regulation Forum organized at the Florence School of Regulation focuses on the benefits and challenges associated with:

  • taking a network perspective in managing capacity and operations in air transport
  • doing so with a Network Manager and with the involvement and cooperation of all stakeholders
  • keeping in mind key performance indicators at both network and at single operator levels

Cooperation, including civil/military cooperation, is key as is true integration of service provision, for instance via FABs and close cooperation among airports and the Network Manager.

On June 24th we aim to facilitate a constructive discussion on the governance of air traffic and, in particular, on the following points:

  • how can performance in the new network framework be delivered?
  • how may stakeholders – e.g. Network Manager, Performance Review Board, FABs, ANSPs, airports, airlines – interact efficiently?
  • how can airports be effectively integrated in the ATM system and how can capacity be aligned?

Following the usual format of the Florence School of Regulation, the Forum aims to bring together stakeholders to take stock of the present situation and discuss the future steps in the informal environment provided by the European University Institute.
