Following notification of a call for industrial action on 19 June 2002 in various European States, viz. France, Greece, Hungary, Italy and Portugal, Eurocontrol<.> is ready to address any potential problems which may arise. The form and duration of the air traffic controllers` action will differ from State to State and will be decided at national level. There is expected to be an impact on the normal traffic flow, leading to delays and the cancellation of some flights.



The Eurocontrol Central Flow Management Unit (CFMU), based in Brussels and responsible for carrying out air traffic flow management operations throughout Europe, will manage the situation as part of its normal daily operations, working in close collaboration with all the European aviation authorities, airlines and air traffic service providers (ATSPs). It will do so by making best use of the capacity made available by the various national ATSPs, assisting aircraft operators, managing all departures and avoiding bottlenecks in the airspace (helping direct and re-route air traffic safely).



Through the CFMU, Eurocontrol will do its utmost to minimise as far as possible the potential impact on the travelling public, airlines and airspace users in general.
