IATA Warns Air Traffic Management Improvement

IATA — By on October 25, 2011 at 12:19 pm

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) warned that states are falling behind in their commitments to improve Europe’s notoriously inefficient air traffic management. According to the latest independent Performance Review Body (PRB) report and the draft recommendations from the European Commission, states are falling behind in their legislated commitments to deliver improvements in operational, financial and environmental efficiency. “Everybody agrees that high costs, delays, environmental waste and circuitous routings are not acceptable. But the problems are not going to fix themselves. Airlines have invested in aircraft and technology to operate at the highest levels of efficiency—often times ahead of what ANSPs are capable of. And we are ready to help drive efficiencies further. But it is the responsibility of states to ensure that their air navigation service providers are delivering what is needed,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.
