Exciting news for Croatia as it decides to unite its airspace (above 9000m) with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro. This union will allow aircrafts to freely organise and operate flights between the four countries without international airspace constraints.

The union was introduced on the 8th of December allowing aircrafts to fly point to point and avoiding the former zig zag routes between destinations. This will reduce the transit time in the area, bring fuel savings and reduce pollution. The union should result in maximum possible savings of 3,400 tons of fuel and considerable reduction in CO2 emissions (11,000 tons).

This is also the first airspace union in Europe and was built following EU regulation which plans to unite the European airspace by January of 2022.
