Skyway issue 79
Skyway issue 79

In this Skyway Spring 2024 edition, we focus on how innovation - automated operations, digital services, advanced urban air mobility and artificial intelligence - will impact the future of Europe’s aviation sector in general and air traffic management services in particular.

Top aviation leaders share with us their views on the need to embrace innovation and enhance collaboration to maintain Europe’s competitive edge in aeronautics and ATM - highlighting that innovation and effective collaboration are central to progress.

We also look at how Europe’s airline passengers are driving many of the changes in the industry’s key priorities and at how we can improve their air travel experience and we give the floor to one inspiring voice for the next aviation generation.
