DANUBE FAB attended the second InterFAB Communication Workshop
On 18-19 January 2018 the FAB communication experts met at the 2nd Inter-FAB Communication Workshop held in Warsaw, Poland. The event is a platform for sharing communication-related best practices and discussing objectives of FABs, their challenges and opportunities. Representatives of six FABs (Baltic FAB, FABEC, FABCE, BLUE MED, DANUBE FAB, Danish-Swedish FAB) were present at the workshop.
Issues tackled during the workshop were among others Social Dialogue at the FAB-level, the Special Report of the European Court of Auditors on the Single European Sky, regulatory perspective of State Authorities concerning FABs, conclusions of the past InterFAB meetings and coordination of the future events (Performance Workshop in Sofia, Air Traffic Volatility Workshop in Warsaw, World ATM Congress in Madrid).
Functional airspace blocks (FABs) constitute one of the cornerstones of the Single European Sky initiative. They were established already in 2012 and are vital for airspace integrity. However, many of the achievements and benefits of FABs often remain known to a limited number of stakeholders only. Thus, the InterFAB communication aims at improving awareness of FABs EU-wide.
