Severe weather remains the main reason for air traffic flow management delay at European airports – and they have been increasing across the Network over the past few years. High-intensity weather events cause delay and unnecessary fuel burn – a major obstacle to efficient, safe and sustainable air traffic. By working closely with Météo-France, Deutscher Wetterdienst - DWD (Germany), Met Office (UK), skeyes (Belgium), Austro Control (Austria) and Croatia Control -CCL (Croatia), coordinated by the European MET Services (EUMETNET), NM is aiming to improve its ability to detect when weather conditions could deteriorate and rapidly develop into severe storms capable of impacting airspace capacity.
