EU to move faster on Single European Sky?

Siim Kallas wants the Single European Sky (SES) programme implemented as quickly as possible.


Siim Kallas

April 27: Estonian-born Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of transport Siim Kallas wants the Single European Sky (SES) programme implemented as quickly as possible following the crisis caused by the Icelandic volcano and the resulting ash cloud.

He will head an extraordinary meeting of Europe's Transport Council on May 4 and will push for bringing forward the deadline for the SES II package from January 2012. "I don't think we can afford to wait that long," he said in a recent statement. "The absence of a single European regulator for air traffic control made it very difficult to respond to this crisis. We needed a fast, coordinated European response to a crisis. Instead, we had a fragmented patchwork of 27 national airspaces. We need a single European regulator for a single European sky."
