20 years ago, 41 States supported by EUROCONTROL implemented a programme to reduce the vertical separation minima between aircraft from 2,000ft to 1,000ft above 29,000ft (FL 290). Allowing aircraft to operate safely with less separation decluttered flight levels and allowed more aircraft to operate at their preferred flight levels and routes, playing a crucial role in increasing capacity, reducing delays, and lowering fuel consumption – helping make over the years flying much more efficient and sustainable.
