that is very strange to say at least. Eurcontrol has taken a loan of 1.56 billion € to avoid this kind of scenarios - the money is intended for ATM providers...

The euro control loan is only intended to provide ANSPs with a portion of their lost ‘predicted’ income from the withholding of route charges, and then of course the collapse in route charge income. It is to run from March to June or July. It will in no way meet their current outgoings without significant further cost cutting, and unless there is a virtually instantaneous return of traffic levels, it would seem job losses or wage and conditions reductions are inevitable without governmental intervention. Does your government have any money sloshing around to keep up conditions at the moment?

In CH, remote training has been taking place. (cf. post on their website)
I think that in OPS, instead of seating next to each other, they are spaced by one station (each position has 3 radar stations next to each other).

Was the Budapest remote tower being used as the full time operational tower for Budapest Airport prior to CV19? I understand that that was supposed to happen this year. If not, that still on track for this year?
