The EUROCONTROL Network Manager is currently trialling the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to predict the impact of likely regulations at large airports in Europe. Making use of the most up-to-date technologies, the project "Regulation Outlook" – launched under SESAR 2 (PJ04, solution 28.3) is displayed pre-tactically and tactically in the Network Manager’s Airport Function position, providing not only the probability that an Airport regulation will be needed , but also explanations about the most important parameters that determine the presence of a regulation, whether they are industrial action, weather, air traffic control or aerodrome capacity issues. Currently, 'Regulation Outlook' estimates the likelihood of a regulation being required at any of the network’s busiest airports with up to 87% accuracy – which is already helping NM coordinate with operational actors to anticipate better any possible disruptions flagged by the new tool.
