The Single European Sky (SES) is a European initiative to improve the way Europe’s airspace is managed. Its purpose is to modernise Europe’s airspace structure and air traffic management technologies so as to ensure forecast growth in air traffic can be met, safely and sustainably, whilst reducing costs and improving environmental performance, ensuring Europe’s aviation industry remains globally competitive.
NATS is a strong supporter of the objectives of the Single European Sky and is working to help make it a reality for our customers.
