FABEC - A cornerstone of the Single European Sky

The Functional Airspace Block Europe Central – FABEC – covers the lower and upper airspace of six States (Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland) and is located at the heart of continental Europe. Its airspace is one of the busiest and most complex in the world. Most of the large European airports and major civil airways and military zones are located in this area. Owing to its size and central position in Europe, FABEC is a cornerstone of the Single European Sky and in full support of the European Aviation Strategy.
To ensure safe, punctual and efficient flights for all passengers flying within the FABEC airspace the civil FABEC air navigation service providers ANA (Luxembourg), skeyes (Belgium), DFS (Germany), DSNA (France), LVNL (Netherlands), MUAC (EUROCONTROL), and skyguide (Switzerland) providing constantly an excellent service quality. In accordance with this, our service ensures the connectivity of the European economy.

The objective of the FABEC is to achieve optimal performance in the areas relating to safety, environmental sustainability, capacity, cost-efficiency, flight efficiency and military mission effectiveness, by the design of airspace and the organisation of air traffic management in the airspace concerned regardless of existing boundaries.
