HungaroControl’s projects receive €1.6 mln in EU funding
The European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is providing €1.6 mln for two projects by Hungarian air traffic controller HungaroControl, the company said today in a press release.
The grant covers half of the project costs for the two projects that involve the establishment and international expansion of the Hungarian Free Route concept intended to develop air traffic control and the establishment of a decision-making system that will aid cooperation between airports, the press release said.
Free Route system, in which HungaroControl is already participating with seven peers, would allow airplanes to freely plan their routes inside the entry and the exit point of a specific area. The participating countries are Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. The respective participating ANSPs are Austro Control, BHANSA, Croatia Control, ANS CR, HungaroControl, LPS SR and Slovenia Control.
The other project is expected to cut taxiing times by one minute, on average, boosting airport capacity, the press release added.
