Airports are a crucial component of the overall aviation network performance as disrupted operations at an airport easily generate major reactionary delays. 

Our focus is on helping airports take advantage of the 'network approach' in solving operational issues and enhancing performance, as defined in the Network Manager Implementing Rule (677/2011).

We do our utmost to integrate airports into the ATM network and help them improve their performance. In particular, we concentrate on reducing delays and on managing adverse conditions and other events that may have an impact upon the network. These efforts are underpinned by a work programme that includes developing cooperative action plans with airports as well as supporting the deployment of concepts that will deliver local and network performance improvements.
