SES2 legislation is aiming to allow the growth of aviation in balance with environmental and safety objectives, against the background of increased competition for the global aviation market from other parts of the world.
Enable growth: overall performance must be improved to accommodate the projected growth of 75% more aircraft movements by 2020. If demand is not met, congestion and delays will become unmanageable.
Reduce environmental impact: Concerns about the effect of aviation on climate change have been added to longstanding concerns about the impact of aviation on the quality of life in local communities. An enhanced approach is needed to accommodate the...
