IAG: ATC Strikes More Dangerous Than Fuel Prices

IAG: ATC Strikes More Dangerous Than Fuel Prices
Ryan Boyd

According to IAG CEO Willie Walsh, strikes from air traffic control personnel have a more dire impact upon the European aviation industry than the rising price of aircraft fuel.

“From a European context, the thing most impacting is ATC strikes and the ongoing ATC environment which is a mess,” said Walsh at an aviation summit in Sydney, Australia. “It’s destroying traffic through Europe.”

A4E estimates the economic impact of ATC strikes throughout the European Union to have been approximately 13.4 billion euros between 2010 and 2017.
