International cooperation

The air traffic management does not cover the Slovak air navigation services only. In order to be efficient and support the development of air transport, a global solution must be found for the airspace. The correctness of such approach is confirmed by the program of the Single European Sky (SES), adopted by the European Commission. SES is an initiative to reform the architecture of European air traffic control to meet future capacity and safety requirements.
