A new single market approach introduced to improve European air traffic management


The European Commission has adopted a new framework that will improve interoperability of European air traffic management (ATM) and air navigation services (ANS). The new rules aim to modernise the ATM network while supporting the introduction of new and innovative technologies. 

The new framework will reduce complexity within ATM systems and aims to strengthen the European Union Aviation Safety Agency's (EASA) role as the overarching certifying authority for both airborne and ground equipment. 

The new rules replace eight Single European Sky interoperability implementing regulations.
