Inter-FAB Cooperation

The operational collaboration between air navigation service providers has been growing in importance since the inception of FABs. At the same time, the InterFAB Cooperation has also grown in importance in the last two years in particular. The European Member States formalised the cooperation between the FABs at two conferences held in Amsterdam and Bucharest. During both of these events it became clear that collaboration within and between FABs varies significantly.

InterFAB Workshop Operations, 2-3 May, Frankfurt/Langen, Germany

The goal of the InterFAB Workshop Operations is to promote the exchange between those who are responsible for operations at the various FABs and ANSPs using concrete examples and issues but without the constraints of a formal framework. Representatives from all FABs discussed current developments and challenges for the coming years on the basis of nine best practice examples and different presentations. The two-day workshop was divided into four sessions:

  1. Free Route Airspace
  2. Crossing borders
  3. Changing flows
  4. Opportunities for and limitations to creating benefits
