Answer given by Ms Creţu on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-005997/2018

During the 2007-2013 period, the projects ‘Centro di controllo d’Area di Brindisi — MODO S’ and ‘ACC Brindisi — Implementazione DAT ALINK VDL 2’ were co-financed and completed in 2016. Consequently, the rule on the durability of operations co-financed by the European Structural Funds and the Cohesion Fund under Article 57 of Regulation 1083/2006, according to which the contribution from the Funds would have to be repaid if substantial changes happen within 5 years of the completion of the operation, does not apply if the new business plan is implemented in 2022.

Concerning the 2014-2020 period, the following projects have been reported in the monitoring system by ENAV S.p.a. in the Brindisi control centre:

‘Adeguamento sistemi meteo aeroportuali’ — completion foreseen by 31/12/2019;
‘Tool Deconfliting’ — completion foreseen by 19/7/2018;
‘VoIP’ — completion foreseen by 30/6/2019;
‘ARTAS’ — completion foreseen by 30/9/2019;
‘4 FLIGHT WP1’ — completion foreseen by 31/12/2020.

For these projects, the managing authority declares that Article 71 of Regulation 1303/2013(1) does not apply, as the co-financed operations are neither subject to relocation nor to substantial changes affecting their nature.

According to the information at the disposal of the Commission, the Brindisi control centre will continue to operate in the area of air traffic control services, fully integrating the existing technical systems and those under implementation into the operations foreseen in the new business plan. This plan will not close any operational sites but reconvert them into innovative hubs.

(1)Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 laying down common provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and laying down general provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006, OJ L 347, 20.12.2013.
