EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission provides earlier ATM Cost Effectiveness (ACE) data and presents a new online interactive dashboard

Brussels, Belgium – The EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission has published a high level analysis on preliminary ACE 2016 data. This preliminary analysis, which is subject to change before the publication of the final ACE Report in May 2018, has been prepared in response to requests from stakeholders for an earlier release of ACE data. 

The ACE Benchmarking Reports are unique tools for a detailed understanding of the cost-effectiveness performance of Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs).

In addition, the PRC supporting unit, the EUROCONTROL Performance Review Unit (PRU), has developed a new online dashboard which enables all interested stakeholders to access the latest available ACE data and analysis. Using the interactive functionalities of the dashboard, stakeholders can design and customise specific analyses and presentations covering the 2002-2015 period.

In response to stakeholders’ requests, the PRC and the PRU have worked to develop a website where high-level ACE data can be published online. In addition, a new document comprising high-level preliminary ACE 2016 data is now publicly available. The PRC’s objective with these two new products is to facilitate the access to high-level ACE data and to make preliminary data available earlier to all stakeholders.” says Mr Ralph Riedle, PRC Chairman.

The high level summary report on ACE 2016 data can be downloaded either from the homepage of the ACE online dashboard, from the PRC website.
