Single European sky initiative could make it easier to reach property in Spain

The implementation of the single European sky initiative could make it easier to reach property in Spain via more direct routes.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced its full support to Jose Blanco, Transport Minister, Spain and Siim Kallas, Vice President, European Commission in their call to accelerate implementation of the Single European Sky. Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO, IATA stated that he support the fast track implementation of the Single European Sky.

"The volcanic ash crisis that paralyzed European air transport for nearly a week made it clear that the Single European Sky is a critical missing link in Europe’s infrastructure. The meeting must back up the technical preparations with an implementation time line for a fully integrated Single European Sky and the political will to achieve it," he added.

He also said that The Single European Sky is much broader than a crisis management mechanism. He also claimed that indirect routes taken due to the existing arrangements between different countries create 16 million tonnes of carbon emissions. However, adopting a single European sky could help to improve this, as well as making property in Spain and beyond easier and faster to reach.
