Operational safety priorities

We contribute to safety management and operational safety across the network.

THIS IS PART OF

At EUROCONTROL, as Network Manager, we contribute to safety management and operational safety across the network by each year identifying network safety issues, setting related action plans to reduce risks, monitoring progress in their implementation and providing implementation support. Our ultimate goal is to achieve a harmonised approach to managing new safety risks.

Through this activity, we aim to support aviation stakeholders in mitigating existing hazards and anticipating new operational risks at the network level. Our ultimate goal is to keep the network safe while increasing its capacity and efficiency.

Priorities

The current major air traffic management (ATM) safety priorities include:
