On 27th April the management of BULATSA and ROMATSA met online for the sixteenth meeting of the DANUBE FAB ANSP Board. The meeting was co-chaired by Mr. Georgi PEEV, Director General BULATSA, and Mr Adrian COJOC, Director General ROMATSA.
The meeting had a busy agenda, ranging from technical matters to more high-level political aspects. ANSP Board members were briefed on the progress of the latest round of DANUBE FAB strategic planning and reporting, status of the FAB procurements and the progress made on the FAB’s five High Priority projects.
During this meeting, attendees were updated on projects which have recently been completed within the FAB, most notably the inclusion of Slovakian airspace in SEE FRA (South-East Free Route Airspace) as of January 2021. DANUBE FAB also completed the deployment of Voice Over Internet Protocol and Datalink Services above FL285. The ANSP Board agreed to investigate options for expanding FRA further, and identify technical infrastructure projects that could be completed cooperatively between BULATSA and ROMATSA.
Participants were briefed on the potential impact on the FAB of the recently released Deloitte Report on the Future of EUROCONTROL. InterFAB events attended and planned were also discussed, notхing that DANUBE FAB expects to host a research workshop in Sofia in late 2022.
