Skyway - Summer 2021

Preparing for the recovery and the challenges ahead
Skyway issue 74
Skyway issue 74

Our latest Skyway magazine is now out. This time we look at how the aviation sector is preparing for the recovery and what changes are underway at airports, in the airline industry and at the Network Manager level.

We thought that it was particularly important for this edition to provide different stakeholders with a platform where they can share their priorities and strategies to get through this crisis and take the opportunity to build back better.

"#BuildBackBetter isn’t just a hashtag – it’s a goal, it’s a way of thinking. It’s vital for all of us if we are to make aviation more efficient and more sustainable"

Eamonn Brennan Director General EUROCONTROL
