Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 12 January 2015

Estonia became Eurocontrols 41st Member State on 1 January 2015.

With the accession of Estonia, Eurocontrol now covers all 28 European Union states.

Even before becoming a member state, Estonia actively participated in the network and has contributed to improve Europes ATM performance.

Over the last six years fifteen airspace design improvement packages have been implemented and two more are planned.

It is with genuine pleasure that I welcome Estonia as our 41st member state, said Frank Brenner, Director General of Eurocontrol. Over the last four years, Estonian air traffic increased by 22%. Estonia continues to rise to this challenge with a very strong performance and very few delays. That is not only appreciated by the airlines and the passengers but also by Eurocontrol as the Network Manager.

Mrs Urve Palo, the Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure of Estonia, said, The accession of Estonia is a logical consequence of the good collaboration over the past years. Thank you for taking us into the family. We are looking forward to working even closer with you.

Estonia, Eurocontrol
