Lusa - Business News - EU/Presidency: Commission hoping for progress on Single European Sky initiative




Brussels, Jan.15,2021(Lusa)- The European Commission has expressed the hope that during Portugal's presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of this year progress will be made on the Single European Sky (SES) initiative, which aims to reduce delays and pollution in air transport within the bloc.
"I am very grateful to the German presidency of the EU [Council], which has promoted discussions on this issue over the last six months, and I am already grateful to the Portuguese Presidency, because I know they want progress on this issue and I really hope that it will be possible," said Henrik Hololei, head of the commission's Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE).
Speaking at an online debate on Thurseday on the post-pandemic recovery of aviation, organised by the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol), Hololei argued that the SES initiative - whose aim is a kind of single market for aviation - "has not yet moved forward just because of a lack of will" from EU member states.
"We have missed opportunities," he said.
Hololei argued that despite the severe crisis in the sector created by the Covid-19 pandemic, now is the time to move forward with the initiative: "During crises we have to make changes ... and we have to do it now because air traffic is going to improve and it is not acceptable that we go back to what we had in 2019 in terms of failures and delays.
"It is not acceptable for passengers or anyone," he said, insisting that the next few months offer "an opportunity to make progress" in the field.
"The commission is committed to this and so is the [European] Parliament," the director-general said. "I only hope that the member states will come together so that we can move towards a real Single European Sky."
Last September the commission proposed more direct air routes to reduce flight delays and polluting emissions from air transport in the EU, also with a view to adapting traffic to lower demand, particularly given the pandemic.
It foresees a planned revision of the regulatory framework - the SES - with targets for the more rational organisation of EU airspace, increasing capacity to accommodate flights while ensuring operational safety across the bloc.
In 2019, flight delays in the EU caused losses of around €6 billion and generated 11.6 million tonnes of excess carbon dioxide, according to the commission. It now wants to reduce this by ensuring that pilots have more direct flight paths, avoiding congested airspace, with airlines no longer opting for longer routes to avoid higher-charging cargo areas.
Created in 2004, the SES initiative aims to reduce the fragmentation of airspace over Europe and improve air traffic management performance in terms of safety, capacity, cost efficiency and the environment.
The commission presented a proposal to revise these standards back in 2013, but negotiations between member states have been stalled since 2015.
