New Operations Centre goes Live!

Bird's eye view of the new OPS Centre

EUROCONTROL is proud to announce the start of operations in the New Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC).

This state-of-the-art building will house the NMOC as it is transformed over the coming years as part of the iNM programme to make the Network Manager even more able to smooth the flow of air traffic across Europe – around 11 million flights expected in 2024 and 16 million flights/year by 2050.

The transition to the new Ops Room took place on 30/31 October. As planned, it was a seamless transition without any disruption or changes for our operational partners.

Extensive testing and shadow operations were performed to ensure a smooth transition.

This is a first, essential, step in the iNM programme. Functional improvements to the Network Manager systems will follow.

"This is a major step forward in our transformation of the Network Manager, making sure that EUROCONTROL will be able to serve the needs of the European aviation network for many years to come. I’d like to warmly thank all the staff and teams who have worked so hard to make this transition happen."
