Under the theme “Digital Transformation for Sustainable Aviation”, the EUROCONTROL Network Manager's User Forum 2022 brought together European aviation’s operational community at EUROCONROL’s headquarters in Brussels and virtually.
Over two days participants discussed operational solutions under the umbrella of today’s most pressing theme: how to make aviation more sustainable? The Forum was a great chance to see practical examples of how EUROCONTROL’s close collaboration with all operational stakeholders to make flights more efficient, optimally use airspace and measure environmental performance is enabling informed decisions to reduce aviation’s environmental impact.
For the EUROCONTROL Network Manager, digitalisation of air traffic management is the key to unlock the potential for more sustainable air traffic at the Network level, and iNM – the EUROCONTROL programme to modernise NM’s operational systems – is the way forward. iNM will make the EUROCONTROL Network Manager more efficient and thus more sustainable. Taking advantage of the latest technology to provide business continuity and manage an estimated 13.8 million flights by 2030 across the EUROCONTROL network, iNM will ensure that the EUROCONTROL Network Manager continues to optimise its support to aviation – keeping flight delays and environmental impacts to a minimum.
The event also included fascinating sessions on EUROCONTROL’s solutions to real ops problems and our services that improve operations and reduce stakeholders’ costs.
