The signatories call on the EU Institutions and Members States to take the necessary steps to implement the joint declaration adopted, outlining their shared commitment to improving Europe’s airspace. 

European Business Aviation sector signed the joint declaration on the Future of the European Sky, renewing its commitment to the Single European Sky and improving the European airspace.  

At High-Level Conference “Digital European Sky”, organised by the European Commission and the Finnish Presidency, EBAA alongside 20 EU aviation stakeholders agreed to collectively intensify efforts to fully implement the Single European Sky (SES) initiative.    

Signing the declaration, EBAA Secretary-General Athar Husain Khan said: “We are happy that the joint declaration for the Future of the Single European Sky aims all noses in the same direction: delivering the efficient and sustainable European airspace we all deserve. The future Air Traffic Management (ATM) system should be inclusive, because one size does not fit all.” 

In addition to easing passenger delays unseen in decades, implementing the SES initiative can help mitigate climate change by cutting 18 million tonnes of CO2 annually in Europe alone. 

Moving forward, the successful implementation of the Single European Sky initiative will require the development of a clearer governance structure, outlining key responsibilities between the EU Institutions, Member States and industry stakeholders. It should also build upon interoperable, current and new technologies and aircraft capabilities.   

We urge the EU Institutions and Member States to consider the steps necessary to achieving the goals of the Single European Sky, assessing their potential impact, costs and benefits. Finally, we call on the European institutions to simplify the regulatory framework and institutional set-up to make the European ATM system fit for the future.
