Air Traffic Congestion

The Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Atkins, MEP for the North West and Conservative Transport Spokesman in the European Parliament, challenged EU Aviation Ministers to take urgent remedial action at their June Meeting to reduce the air traffic congestion in European skies and the increasing delays for European air travellers.

Sir Robert was speaking during the passage of his Report on the issue through the Transport Committee of the European Parliament this week. "The huge costs to the aviation industry caused by the increasing delays, let alone the sheer inconvenience to passengers, is simply unacceptable", he commented. "My proposals offer Ministers the opportunity to address this vexed problem and they must do something before the situation gets completely out of hand".
