Baltic Functional Airspace Block (Baltic FAB) is a cooperative arrangement between Poland and Lithuania in the field of air navigation services. To implement the EU’s Single European Sky concept the States, National Supervisory Authorities and Air Navigation Service Providers brought together their expertise, efforts and willingness for innovative changes. The main focus of the Baltic FAB is optimal performance of all users of two countries’ aggregated airspace comprising Warsaw and Vilnius flight information regions (FIRs).
Baltic FAB exists not only to comply with European legislation and bring to life the EU’s concept of reducing fragmentation of air navigation service provision within Europe. Apart from the concept itself there is a “window of opportunity” for all FAB members in various areas like industrial partnership, international cooperation, best practice sharing, research and development. We work together to improve the individual performance of each member as well as to create synergies for the whole Baltic FAB in order to meet challenges of global diversity.
To achieve the vision of the Baltic FAB the following strategic objectives have been identified:
- To extend the scope by involving other FABs, ANSPs, and non-EU States,
- To develop innovative solutions,
- To operate as a single business-oriented, efficient organization,
- To introduce and promote a value-driven organizational model,
- To provide services not linked to the site of provision.
