On The Problem of Effective Airspace Management and Air Traffic Control Capacity

Viktorija Mažylytė

Air traffic services system depends on: air traffic services rout structure, aircraft navigational aids, weather conditions, air traffic controller workload. However, the demand of airspace users is not always satisfied. The airspace management is trying to make a maximum capacity level both under normal conditions and during peak periods.

Europe’s fragmented airspace causes inefficiency and bigger costs for users. The creation of functional airspace blocks in region will satisfy the growing capacity requirements of all airspace users with a minimum of delays by managing air traffic more dynamically. At the same time, safety standards and overall efficiency will be enhanced.
