EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission issues its latest ATM Cost-Effectiveness Benchmarking Report

Brussels, Belgium – The EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission (PRC) has published its seventeenth 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 2017, the latest year for which actual financial data are available, based on information submitted in July 2018.

The ACE Report also examines changes in ANSPs cost-effectiveness over 2012-2017 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 2018-2022.

I am very proud of this ACE benchmarking work, which is unique in Europe, It is the gold standard reference work on the cost-effectiveness and productivity performance of European ANSPs.

Mr Ralph Riedle PRC Chairman

Mr Riedle also strongly encouraged all interested stakeholders to use the information, which is publicly available in the interactive web-based ACE dashboard. This dashboard, which allows its users to make customised analysis of ANSP cost-effectiveness performance, is updated regularly to reflect the latest ACE data available.
