May 2, 2019

Since 25 April 2019, cross-border free route airspace managed by EUROCONTROL’s Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC), Naviair, LFV and DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung has allowed cross-border free route operations.

Airspace users planning to fly in the upper airspace between Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Sweden can now do so irrespective of airspace boundaries. This allows for optimised routings, fuel savings and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
