Network Performance Plan 2020-2024

EUROCONTROL Network performance Plan 2020-2024 cover

This document contains the Network Performance Plan (NPP) for Reference Period 3 (RP3) 2020-2024, in compliance with the Performance Regulation (EU) 317/2019 and the ATM Network Function Regulation (EU) 123/2019 (NF regulation).

The plan has been developed by the EUROCONTROL Network Manager (NM) in close cooperation with aviation stakeholders from EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland. EU rules have required this revision of the Network Performance Plan to take into account the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation sector in Europe and reflect the revised performance targets for the third reference period (2020-2024).

EUROCONTROL estimates that the actions, programmes and plans agreed will help save approximately 1 000 million nautical miles, i.e. the equivalent of 6 million tons of fuel saved and 20 million tons of emissions and reduce 10 million minutes of ATFM delays.

This performance plan for the EUROCONTROL NM contains performance targets for all relevant key performance areas and key performance indicators in Annex I, Section 3 of the Performance regulation, consistent with the Union-wide performance targets.

Without prejudice, and for practical purposes, the network management functions apply to EU Member States, EUROCONTROL States and third parties with bilateral agreements with NM, referenced throughout the document as the NM area. The scope of the targets and objectives defined in NPP is consistent with this pan-European approach.

The EUROCONTROL NM targets are fully compliant with Performance regulation 317/2019 and the targets defined in the Article 2-4 of the Decision 2019/903/EU for the 28 EU Member States plus Norway and Switzerland, referenced throughout the document as the SES area.

NM has defined a number of additional performance indicators to monitor, analyse and take corrective actions in regard of the NM and network performance see Appendix II.
