The improvement measures implemented since AIRAC 2006 could have led to:
Our monthly European route network implementation plan (ERNIP) monitoring report provides an overview of the airspace design improvements applied by States during the past AIRAC cycle and an analysis of their potential and real world effects.
Highlights for AIRAC 2006
airspace improvement measures in AIRAC 2006 coordinated with the EUROCONTROL Network Manager
flown less on shortest available route
less fuel used
less CO2 emitted
Based on our filed flight plan indicator, the actual situation during AIRAC 2006 was:
flown more compared to shortest available route
more fuel used
more CO2 emitted
Potential causes having an impact on flight planning/ airline choices:
- Industrial action;
- Traffic composition/ demand;
- Closed areas in adjacent airspace(s)
- Regulations applied due to capacity problems in the network
Note: The data of AIRAC 2006 report are significantly disrupted by the COVID-19 crisis and the significant decrease of flights with 80% - 85% fewer flights operated in the NM area compared to 2019. Therefore, the statistics/ results might not be as reliable and accurate as usual.
