International NOTAM operations

Access conditions

INO is the central repository of the worldwide NOTAM.

INO for data providers

INO enables data providers to create, maintain and distribute NOTAM, SNOWTAM and ASHTAM for their NOTAM office in accordance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPS) and EUROCONTROL Operating Procedures for AIS Dynamic Data (OPADD).

  • It allows NOTAM Offices to create and maintaine NOTAM, SNOWTAM and ASHTAM information;
  • it provides an integrated flight planning solution.

INO supports the NOTAM management process by providing increased quality and consistency through a single repository, NOTAM-SDO linkage, NOTAM grouping and making available NOTAM templates and proposals. In addition, NOTAM can be monitored by estimated NOTAM, NOTAM history and proposals.

INO provides also a graphical validation tool to visualise and verify NOTAM information before publication.

INO for data users

INO enables data users to have direct access to NOTAM, SNOWTAM and ASHTAM for briefing purposes (PIB – Pre-flight Information Bulletins). Additionally, monitoring of all incoming NOTAM is possible.

Briefings available include: aerodrome, area and special area – based on airspace or centre point radius; route – based on aerodrome of departure/destination and over-flown FIRs; and narrow route – based on a pre-defined route, a flight plan, or a route described by the operator.

For each PIB, the following features can also be requested:

  • a "full" or "update" PIB;
  • immediate notification during a pre-defined period of time after creation of the PIB;
  • storage of pre-defined routes based on flight plan or ad-hoc definition;
  • storage of frequently requested PIB in a profile;
  • allowing the user to re-use the definition of the PIB later on;
  • schedule a profile based on a date/time parameter.

For enhanced usability, data users can store predefined routes based on flight plan or ad-hoc definition and store frequently requested PIBs in a profile, for later reuse.

INO provides also a graphical visualisation of PIB.

  • a single access point for quality NOTAM information;
  • availability of pre-flight information.
