Frank Brenner, EUROCONTROL's Director General, delivered a keynote speech at the main conference of the World ATM Congress.
He highlighted the financial pressure on ATM and noted that all the players need to do what they can to help. EUROCONTROL has reduced its own costs and is playing a more proactive role as Network Manager. It also is ready to help manage centralised services.
This idea will help to reduce duplication and cut costs as SESAR is deployed by creating centralised, pan-European services.
