The A6 is an alliance of some of the main European Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs). Its aim is to help drive modernisation of the European ATM network within SESAR for the benefit of customers. Its role is to create synergies between the ANSP members of the SESAR JU to maximise customer and network benefits.
The A6 members, bound by a Memorandum of Co-operation, are full members of the SESAR Joint Undertaking, making the A6 uniquely placed to represent the interests of the ATM industry in the effective deployment of technologies and concepts developed through SESAR.
The Memorandum of Cooperation signed in 2011 by members of the original A6 Alliance (DSNA/France, DFS/Germany, ENAV, ENAIRE/Spain, NATS/UK as well as Noracon Consortium including Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Norway and Sweden) was revised to enable even greater cooperation to help deliver SESAR extended to COOPANS Alliance (Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Ireland and Sweden) and the B4 consortium (Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland and Slovakia). Further, PANSA, Poland’s ANSP, became full member of the A6 Alliance, too.
ENAV participates in A6 steering and working group levels contributing to the A6 purposes to support the modernization process of the European ATM infrastructure which is the core objective of SESAR.
