BULATSA and ROMATSA, long-standing partners in DANUBE FAB, continue to work on the effective management of the ongoing DANUBE FAB activities in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has a negative global impact on the aviation sector.
The regular sessions of the DANUBE FAB governing bodies (ANSP Board and Governing Council) were held by videoconference on 28th and 29th October, 2020. During the meetings the parties committed themselves to using the current crisis for revision of the strategic activities of DANUBE FAB in order to better synchronize them with the current situation and the latest EU legislative proposals in the field of ANS. The participants were informed about the free route airspace developments in DANUBE FAB and the plans in 2021 for Slovakia to join the Republic of Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary in SEE FRA. As a result of the activities of the Inter-FAB Coordination platform in Europe, Baltic FAB, DANUBE FAB, FAB CE and FABEC have signed a joint declaration on cooperation in the field of air navigation information management (AIM) to achieve the objectives of the SES.
On November 19, 2020, a regular online meeting of the DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum (SCF) was also held. The meeting was attended by representatives of the management of BULATSA and ROMATSA, as well as the social partners in both enterprises. The achievements of DANUBE FAB in 2020 were discussed, as well as the challenges in the context of the long-term and short-term impact of the pandemic on aviation.
BULATSA and ROMATSA continue to closely monitor the developments internationally and present coordinated positions on behalf of DANUBE FAB through the various international channels and cooperation mechanisms.
