Brussels, Belgium – The EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission (PRC) has published its sixteenth ATM Cost-Effectiveness (ACE) Benchmarking Report. This report provides invaluable insights into the cost-effectiveness and productivity of 38 European Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) in 2016, the latest year for which actual financial data are available, based on information submitted in July 2017.
The ACE Report also examines changes in ANSPs cost-effectiveness over 2011-2016 with a strong focus on the underlying performance drivers such as Air Traffic Controllers’ productivity, employment costs and support costs. It also provides an outlook of the performance planned over the five year cycle covering 2017-2021. This year, the ACE 2016 Benchmarking Report includes a new chapter examining ANSPs balance-sheet structure and capital expenditure, which also comprises high level information on the FDP systems that are operated by the European ANSPs.
