CANSO and ENAIRE meet to promote collaboration and discuss the challenges European aviation is facing

12 November 2018

CANSO – the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation – and ENAIRE held a strategic bilateral meeting to discuss the challenges that European aviation is facing and to enhance and strengthen CANSO-ENAIRE cooperation.

CANSO is the global voice of air traffic management and represents the interests of air navigation service providers (ANSPs), of which ENAIRE, the Spanish ANSP, has been a founding Member since 1998.

The CANSO Director Europe Affairs, Tanja Grobotek, and the CANSO Deputy Director General, Simon Hocquard, had the opportunity to discuss with Ángel Luis Arias, Director General of ENAIRE, and his team the current challenges of European aviation to better comprehend the particularities of the aviation sector in Spain.

The event proved to be very fruitful for both parties involved. ENAIRE took the chance to share with CANSO its views on key topics like the Single European Sky, the future of air traffic management (ATM) in Europe and the main ATM challenges in the short term. CANSO and ENAIRE discussed the challenges of European aviation, decided to strengthen their cooperation and agreed on the need for all stakeholders to work together to create a truly Single European Sky and ensure that passengers receive total quality of service.

After the bilateral meeting with ENAIRE, CANSO had the opportunity to present its activities at the global level and in Europe to Spanish aviation stakeholders such as Spanish CAA and NSA (AESA), Spanish Air Force, AENA (Spanish Airports), Airlines Associations and Spanish ATM Industry, to provide a platform to respond to challenges in ATM, and to create an environment for ANSPs to enhance ATM performance through collaboration.
