This year “Europe’s Functional Airspace Block Europe Central”, known as FABEC, has been awarded the David J. Hurley Memorial Award for Aviation Traffic Management at the Air Traffic Control Association ATCA Annual Conference and Exposition on 2 October 2018 in Washington, D.C. The goal of the ATCA award is to give special recognition for outstanding achievement to persons and organizations engaged in the development, operation, or maintenance of the worldwide air traffic control system. FABEC received the award because of its innovative work in the field of volatility and adverse weather. The different member states conducted common extensive research on the consequences of unexpected events and extreme weather conditions on air traffic control.
ANA Luxembourg is one of FABEC´s air navigation service providers which aim to achieve optimal performance through the common development and implementation of innovative operational solutions. The CEOs of ANA, Claudio Clori and Cos Rausch, highly appreciate the recognition by the ATCA through this award. This is an important award because it recognizes teamwork and collaborative decision- making, vital components to the success of the global airspace.
