The decision to continue the operation of the European ATM Voluntary Solidarity Fund and to allocate funds was taken at a meeting of Eurocontrol member states.
This will be the second year of operation of the Fund. At a time when civil flights are not operating, the Fund’s support is helping to keep Ukraine’s air traffic control system in good condition and to maintain the qualifications of industry professionals.
“For almost a year now, the Solidarity Fund has been helping us to create the conditions for the post-war recovery of the aviation industry. It is important that the Fund not only supports the national air navigation system, but also aims to improve the knowledge of our specialists and maintain their professional level. The Fund’s activities are key to the resumption of flights,” said Serhiy Derkach, Deputy Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, during a meeting of Eurocontrol in Brussels.
As a reminder, the European ATM Voluntary Solidarity Fund was established to support the infrastructure, operational and professional components of the Ukrainian air navigation system and directly UkSATSE as the national provider of air navigation services.
