FABEC has set up a set of workshops, meetings and seminars to ensure that a good understanding of needs and requirements, but also limitations, can be achieved – both those of airspace users and of air navigation service providers. The main focus of these initiatives is on operational issues. A three-level approach has been established.

  • Regular workshops and exchanges with the Airspace Operator Group (liaising with the Network Manager)
  • Topic-based workshops
  • Annual visits to major airlines based on the results of the FABEC Common Customer Survey
