The Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) has collaborated with Airlines 4 Europe (A4E) to help improve the air traffic management (ATM) network across the continent.

Both parties will discuss the current technical, regulatory, operational and legal issues associated with industrial action in the European ATM network.

Currently, no measures have been incorporated to reduce the impact of industrial action on passengers travelling to and from the European airports.

CANSO Europe chair and NATS CEO Martin Rolfe said: “CANSO Members have worked hard to establish a well-defined culture of consultation and negotiation in cases where there are diverging opinions and potential for industrial action to occur.

"CANSO and its members are key to maintaining a reliable air transport network in Europe."

“As a result, most ANSPs and their social partners have successfully avoided industrial action or managed the action to reduce the impact on the travelling public.”

According to the two organisations, proper measures should be implemented by the European States wherever possible and practical.

CANSO and A4E also support the intention of the European Commission (EC) to make recommendations to European governments regarding the improvements in the ATM network, thereby assisting the two organisations in their existing efforts.

A4E managing director Thomas Reynaert said: “CANSO and its members are key to maintaining a reliable air transport network in Europe.

“We welcome the clear position they are taking and appreciate that a large majority of ANSPs and their social partners have experienced no industrial action for a significant period of time.”

The organisations also seek support from other major stakeholders to enhance the European ATM network’s overall performance, which in turn will boost job opportunities and prosperity across Europe.
