Let’s start with some exciting news; air traffic is going to experience a strong rebound in the FAB CE states during June and July 2021! 


In other interesting developments, there’s a new interactive analysis tool called FAHTOM from EUROCONTROL. How does it help? Well, it allows aircraft operators to access large amounts of data on their flights. This brings insight into many areas, including: 

  • Traffic 
  • Punctuality 
  • Schedule 
  • Fuel burn 
  • Route changes 
  • And much more! 

There’s news from Africa as Egis and Aéroport de Paris Ingénierie have signed a memorandum of understanding with the Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority. This is for the development of further airport capacity at Djibouti Airport.


If you’re interested in London-based air traffic, it’s worth noting that proposed new routes into London Luton Airport have been modified. This is to respond to the input from residents and stakeholders received in a public consultation. 


Finally, we’d like to highlight the good work being done to understand volatility in the air traffic sector and how it can best rise to the challenge. At the InterFAB Expert Talk on June 24th, industry experts came together to share ideas and work toward more cost-effective services to help bolster the sector.
