EUROCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, made up of 41 Member States and the European Union (represented by the European Commission).
The main objective of EUROCONTROL is the development of a consistent and coordinated air traffic control system in Europe. The Organisation also contributes to improving the safety of European aviation (network management, the environment, R&D, performance, technical and regulatory support to the EC and EASA, etc.).
EUROCONTROL was founded in 1960 as a civil/military Organisation with the task of supervising air traffic for civil and military users in the upper airspace of its six founding Member States. EUROCONTROL has since evolved into a centre of excellence for European air traffic management, steering and supporting air traffic management improvements across Europe.
Now, along with its partners, EUROCONTROL has the task of building the Single European Sky.
Union Syndicale is present at the various sites of the Organisation, at Brussels, Brétigny-sur-Orge (France) and Luxembourg.
