Single European Sky
Reboot for the Climate
Kerosene is wasted in Europe’s skies and unnecessarily high amounts of CO₂ are emitted. Because air space is fragmented, and national air traffic control centres use different technologies. For many years the EU has been wanting to bring about the Single European Sky (SES). Harmonisation of the air space, for example by means of technological modernisation, would be a real measure to protect the climate: up to 10 per cent of CO₂ emissions could be saved on European flights this way.
