International Relations

HungaroControl is committed to maintain and develop the Company’s international cooperation activities.

The legal framework of the European ATM sector is essentially defined by the Single European Sky Basic Regulation. At the policy level, the Green Deal programme and more specifically the European Commission’s Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy contains the principles and the roadmap of the growth strategy of the Von der Leyen administration, the focus of which is the sustainability of the Union’s economy. The programme identifies climate and environmental criteria for the economic sector including transport that will allow Europe to reach its climate neutral goals by 2050. Moreover, the programme urges the revision of the Single European Sky for the green transformation of the aviation sector.

From September 2020, the stalled negotiations of SES2+ legislative proposal package resumed. The package would establish a new operational framework for the whole ATM sector that would result in increased digitalisation, liberalisation and centralisation. The aim of HungaroControl is to establish active, meaningful, economically viable and environmentally sustainable cooperations that serve the public interest. The key areas of focus are strengthening relations with partner air navigation service providers, establishing cooperation with industrial partners and also the representation of the Company’s interests in the broader international environment.
