Skyway magazine

Skyway magazine

EUROCONTROL's official magazine, Skyway, has developed into an authoritative voice, tackling the key issues affecting European aviation.

Skyway issue 78

In this issue

In this edition, we focus on diversity and inclusion and explore how the aviation industry needs to move forward to tackle this important challenge.

We also look at the Ukrainian conflict and its wider implications for Europe’s air traffic community; and we report on the work that is underway to move European aviation to a climate-neutral industry.

From embracing diversity to accelerating technologies, top aviation leaders share with us their views on how aviation will meet the challenges it will be facing over the next three decades. 

Raúl Medina

By embracing diversity & accelerating innovative technologies, aviation can raise the bar & meet its future challenges

We need to start telling our story better. That is for me the standout message in this SKYWAY edition, because it is so central to achieving our goal here at EUROCONTROL of raising the bar for European aviation.
