A project developed by FerroNATS, the Spanish General Directorate of Civil Aviation, the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency, Enaire, AENA, Ineco and Saerco wins one of the European Commission’s Single European Sky Awards.
The project to improve the efficiency of the Spanish air traffic network is one of five winners of the Single European Sky awards granted by the European Commission at the ATM World Congress held in Madrid between 8th and 10th March 2016.
It is the only Spanish project to have won this award, and has been developed jointly by the Spanish General Directorate for Civil Aviation (DGAC), the Spanish National Office for Air Safety (AESA), Enaire, AENA and companies FerroNATS (joint venture between Ferrovial and NATS), Ineco and Saerco.
The Single European Sky awards are granted to projects making the greatest contribution to the achievement of the Single European Sky in terms of performance, improvements in efficiency, and innovative solutions. The five winners, selected from 22 applicants representing a total of 65 public and private entities from 27 european countries, were: the COOPANS Alliance; Heathrow’s time based separation procedure; implementation of free routing across Northern Europe by 2021; a Remote Tower service; and performance and efficiency improvements in the Spanish air traffic management network through an ordered change management process.
The five projects were chosen by a jury of experts from within and outside the European Commission. According to the Commission, these awards aim to recognise the concerted efforts of organisations to achieve a common European goal: that of a Single European Sky.
