Agreements and Coordinations

    The State Aviation Safety Agency maintains a close relationship with the rest of the aeronautical authorities, through agreements and compliances. These are: ANSMIL (Military Authority) and ANSMET (Meteorological Authority).

    On the other hand, cross-border functional airspace blocks (FABs) have been established, based on operational requirements, in order to achieve a more rational organisation of airspace. In this context, the geographical location of Portugal and Spain in the south-western part of Europe and the characteristics of the respective traffics make both States natural partners to establish a functional airspace block (SW FAB), so that ENAIRE is currently actively participating, together with the other actors involved, in various areas and at different levels in the implementation of SW FAB.
    Furthermore, EASA also participates in the working groups defined in accordance with Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/123 for the decision-making process by the Network Manager (EUROCONTROL) for the coordination of aspects that may have an impact on the European Air Traffic Network
