|Abstract: ||This paper deals with the Air Traffic Management (ATM) situation in the South East Europe (SEE)
countries. The current status indicates that the SEE air space users require increased capacity, higher
flexibility and improved cost efficiency. On the other hand, some of these countries were in a war
situation a few years ago, and now they are seeking a regional cooperation to ensure regional stability and
prosperity towards their integration to the European Union.
The paper starts with a description of the cooperation schemes, already in operation in the area. Then the
attempt to converge the ATM of the region towards the EU Single European Sky is investigated. The
FABA (Functional Airspace Block Approach), a European Union (EU) initiative, applied in the SEE is
presented in detail.
In the continuation, the paper reports on the definition phase of the SEE FABA initiative, which is to
provide a well founded basis for the reorganisation of the SEE air space into FAB’s.
It is concluded that the FAB solution stemming from the EU Single European Sky policy is feasible,
highly beneficial and necessary for the SEE region development.|
