We manage a seamless European airspace by linking together the elements of the European air traffic management system. Focusing on performance of the European network, we ensure that flights reach their destination safely, on time, with the least possible impact on environment and in a cost-efficient way.
As the Network Manager (NM), we develop and operate the air traffic management (ATM) network in Europe and beyond. With our comprehensive picture of the ATM network and unique in-depth expertise, we ensure the smooth flow of traffic and address performance challenges strategically, operationally and technically.
Our 20+ years of expertise in centralised flow management allows us to efficiently forecast, plan and coordinate the safe operation of flights.
Hand-in-hand with our partners, we develop solutions to meet current and future airspace and ground capacity needs.
We exchange information with countries across the ICAO European region and beyond to improve traffic flows from the regional to the global level, enhance traffic predictability and increase network capacity.

Powered by the Network Manager Operations Centre.
Network operations planning
Meeting network demands by setting tangible milestones for the future.
Monitoring, analysing and reporting on the performance of the network.
We lead the evolution of the European network. We innovate and develop the concepts and systems that will power the future network and fulfil the needs of our stakeholders.
Our complex operational systems are powered by IT services that guarantee the smooth round-the-clock operation of our services.
At the same time, we actively improve efficiency and reduce the cost of support. In addition, we provide ad-hoc technical support for ATM stakeholders.
Enhanced tactical flow management system
Provides enhanced tactical data to all operational stakeholders.
Integrated initial flight plan processing system
Rationalising the reception, initial processing and distribution of flight plan data related to IFR flight within the ICAO EUR Region.
The NM operates through a process of cooperative decision-making between two bodies - the Network Management Board and the Single Sky Committee.
