Hungarian-Romanian-Bulgarian Free Route: further decrease in the emission of airplanes
HungaroControl Zrt. and ROMATSA, the Romanian air navigation service provider helped to establish the free route concept in Bulgaria, which allows the free use of Bulgarian airspace from 30th March. Airplanes may freely use the airspace between the defined entry points and exit points without restrictions, even following the shortest route possible. Based on the experience, this results in a decrease of fuel consumption and emissions of airplanes.
Key Customers Meeting and Workshop: industry consultation for safer and more efficient flights in the Hungarian airspace
A professional forum was held in Budapest with the participation of pilots, navigation and ATC experts from five international airlines – Austrian Airlines, easyJet, Etihad, Ryanair and Wizz Air –, the representatives of Budapest Airport and HungaroControl’s air traffic controllers, flight safety and ATM system design specialists. Upon HungaroControl’s initiative, key aviation stakeholders met for the third time to jointly discuss and analyse issues related to increasing flight safety and improving air navigation services, work processes and procedures. The findings of this year’s two-day forum facilitate both the intensification of communication between pilots and air traffic controllers and efficient route and procedure design, and thus make aviation more economical and environmentally friendly in the airspace controlled by Hungarian air traffic controllers.
Budapest 2.0: The international collaboration demonstrating ATM developments with live traffic has been completed
Budapest 2.0, a project with international collaboration has demonstrated the benefits of three technological innovations co-financed by SESAR, the organisation setting the directions for the development of air traffic management in Europe, through real flights. The program has demonstrated the capabilities of solutions supporting continuous descent, the benefits of satellite-based arrival procedures, and the applicability of remote tower control in the vicinity of Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport. These demonstrations were evaluated during a professional workshop held in the middle of November at HungaroControl's headquarters. The total budget of the project is nearly EUR 2.5 million, 50 percent of which has been funded by SESAR Joint Undertaking.
