Bulgarian Sky Opens to Free Flight Planning
Bulgaria is to enable the option of so-called free flight planning in November, announced Dian Dinev, director of Bulgaria's air traffic authority.
"Free planning of flight routes would allow each flight to choose the shortest way to its destination, saving fuel, decreasing the harmful emissions released into the air, and thus making the airspace transport more effective," explained Dinev in a meeting with Frank Brenner, the Director of EUROCONTROL.
In an official statement, Bulgarian Transport Minister Danail Papazov informed that Bulgaria has registered a considerable growth of nearly 50% larger air traffic volume handled for the last 10 years. The minister added that the prices of air services has decreased by 35% for that period.
EUROCONTROL director Brenner confirmed the achievements in the modernization of Bulgaria’s air traffic management system over the last few years, stressing on the modernized route network and improved quality of service.
Bulgaria is a member state of EUROCONTROL, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation providing air traffic management since 1997.
