ELFAA calls on SES Committee to vote for 'effective' ATM scheme

European Low Fares Airline Association (ELFAA) urged (20-Apr-2010) state representatives in the Single European Sky Committee (SSC) to "prioritise the interests of consumers and the environment and vote for a truly effective European Air Traffic Management (ATM) scheme, that meets the objectives of SES II". In particular, ELFAA is calling on participants to reduce the cost of ATM, with the association commenting that, at current cost, European consumers are paying EUR20 per return flight to "fund the inefficiencies, which result from the patchwork of providers" that together form European ATM. ELFAA added that the cost per flight of European ATM is double that of the US where there is a single provider of ATM. [more]
