GRTU welcomes approach taken by Government on the Single European Sky

 GRTU's Tourisms Hospitality and Leisure President Philip
Fenech welcomed the announcement made by the Government that Malta is fully
committed to the implementation of the Single European Sky.

GRTU is a prime
supporter of this EU proposal and feels that Malta has a lot to gain both as a
country and in businesses terms through its implementation. The Government
stated that Malta continues to affirm its ongoing commitment to tangibly
contribute to the realisation of an efficient and effective Functional Airspace
Blocks (FABs).

This follows a request by the Commission for Austria,
Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy,
Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and United
Kingdom, members of six different FABs to improve their FABs, a common airspace
arranged around traffic flows rather than state boundaries. FABs are a crucial
step towards a more efficient, less costly and less polluting aviation system
in Europe.

Philip Fenech already made GRTU's position clear
during consultation meetings held on the subject that this is the way forward
and that implementing the Single European Sky would result in savings in both
time and costs which should positively impact tourism flows. This especially
for an island state like Malta.
