SEE FRA project successfully completed on 7th November 2019

SEE FRA project successfully completed on 7th November 2019

Starting from 7th of November 2019 the Aircraft Operators will be able to plan their flights freely across the airspace of Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania 24/7 without the limitations of the geographical boundaries. This is the completion of the SEE FRA project (South East Europe Free Route Airspace) for implementing 24/7 cross border free route operations across the airspace of the 3 states. The new flight planning rules significantly optimize the flight trajectories not only by using the shortest connections but also allowing the use of the most effective routings when the impacts on the flights are inevitable e.g adverse weather avoidance.

The capacity crisis – a single sector cause or are we missing other, significant factors?

Mr. Veselin Stoyanov, Director EU programmes, projects and strategies at BULATSA together with the other panellists investigated the need to improve the Environment Performance indicator (KEA indicator) with a new one considering not only the deviation from the shortest route, but also airspace availability and airline preferences, for example an indicator that is centred around measuring the degree of flight planning freedom provided to users, vs. flight planning availability.
