ERA: ADS-B installation in Europe should employ a 'prioritised approach'

European Regions Airline Association (ERA) president Andrew Kelly said (13-Jun-2018) it has received support from the European Commission to push for a "prioritised approach" for the uptake of ADS-B in Europe. "ADS-B requires a significant investment for our member airlines and while we agree that it is necessary, we are heartened by Henrik Hololei's view that there should not be a disproportionate or unnecessary burden on airlines that would in turn impact passengers, business and local economies", Mr Kelly said. ERA seeks a prioritised and stepped implementation based on ANSP, airspace user and airport needs, challenges and capabilities rather than a "blanket approach creating inefficiencies, disruptions and unnecessary cost impacts for ERA airline members and their passengers". [more - original PR]
