SESAR is the operational part to the legislative packages of SES and is proposing a new approach to reform the ATM structure in Europe in regards to innovative technological solutions.
The A6 alliance was founded in 2011 by the six ANSP members of the SESAR JU – DFS (Germany), DSNA (France), ENAIRE (Spain), ENAV (Italy), NATS (UK) and NORACON – a consortium including Austro Control (Austria), AVINOR (Norway), EANS (Estonia), Finavia (Finland), IAA (Ireland), LFV (Sweden) and Naviair (Denmark).
Seven of Europe’s nine Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs) – the geographic pillar of SES – are now represented within the A6 Alliance and our members are responsible for the safe management of more than 80% of Europe’s air traffic, and more than 70% of the investment in the future European ATM infrastructure.
While the FABs are primarily focused on operational performance improvement, the A6 Alliance is focused on SESAR development and deployment, SESAR deployment execution (planning, governance, funding), and key strategic areas of A6 common interest related to transport and aviation legislation.
The A6 is an inclusive initiative for ANSP contribution to modernising the European ATM system and welcomes interest and input from non-A6 members.
