EC and INEA visit Borealis Free Route Airspace project


On the 29th of November, the European Commission and Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) visited Finavia, a Borealis Free Route Airspace implementing partner, to see how the EU funding has supported the deployment of Free Route Airspace in Northern Europe.

The deployment financed under the ‘Borealis Free Route Airspace, Part 1’ was selected by INEA and DG Move for an official visit in 2016 amongst five SESAR projects financed under the CEF Call 2014.

The ‘free routes’ concept in operation showcased airspace where airlines can plan and fly their preferred trajectories across six North European states - Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Norway, and Sweden, achieved through cooperation in NEFAB and with Danish-Swedish (DK-SE) functional airspace block. This is an important milestone in seeing Borealis Free Route Airspace implemented across nine States in Northern Europe through building interfaces to connect this free route airspace area further with UK-Ireland FAB and Iceland.
