Operations, safety and infrastructure

ERA represents, lobbies and advocates on behalf of its members on vital operational, safety and infrastructure policy and technical issues.

As the aviation ecosystem recovers, adapts to the unprecedented impacts from COVID-19 and looks to ‘build back better’, ERA is active in promoting our members' best interests in the fields of air traffic management, air and ground safety and associated social dialogue pillars.

Working on priority files including the Single European Sky (SES & SESAR), flight efficiency, CNS, the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS), crisis management, cyber security, and drones (U-space); ERA maintains close links to the major agencies and institutions including EASA, EUROCONTROL and the European Commission to ensure that the voice of the European regional aviation industry is heard by EU decision makers.
