Air traffic management cost-effectiveness (ACE) benchmarking report for 2017

2018-2022 outlook

This report is the seventeenth in a series of annual reports based on mandatory information disclosure provided by 38 Air Navigation Services Providers (ANSPs) to the EUROCONTROL Performance Review Commission (PRC).

This report comprises factual data and analysis on cost-effectiveness and productivity for these 38 ANSPs for the year 2017, including high level trend analysis for the years 2012-2017. The scope of the report is both en-route and terminal navigation services (i.e. gate-to-gate). The main focus is on the ATM/CNS provision costs as these costs are under the direct control and responsibility of the ANSP. Costs borne by airspace users for less than optimal quality of service are also considered. The report describes a performance framework for the analysis of cost-effectiveness. The framework highlights three key performance drivers contributing to costeffectiveness (productivity, employment costs and support costs). The report also analyses forward-looking information for the years 2018-2022, inferring on future financial cost-effectiveness performance at system level, and displays information on actual and planned capital expenditures for the period 2012-2022.
