18 July, 2019

IATA regional VP for Europe Rafael Schvartzman labeled (18-Jul-2019) the current state of Europe's airspace as "simply unacceptable". Mr Schvartzman stated: "Airlines are making strides to reduce their environmental impact but in Europe they are being forced to produce unnecessary emissions every day. Fortunately, solutions exist. With the correct investment and planning, and a change in mindset by both governments and ANSPs, another summer of wasted emissions and delays can be avoided". [more - original PR]
