Performance Review Report (PRR) 2001

This fifth Performance Review Report, covering the year 2001, assesses the performance of the European air traffic management (ATM) system under four key performance areas safety, cost-effectiveness, flight efficiency, delays and capacity.

The report shows that there were deficiencies in all these areas and indicates some of the improvements that would be needed: airports, investment in ATM, fragmentation, civil-military co-ordination and ATM governance. The European Union, EUROCONTROL and States have an opportunity to address these issues in the context of the Single European Sky, expected to be in place by 31 December 2004.


Our annexes document provide additional information on safety tables, most penalised locations, en-route and airport air traffic flow management (ATFM) delay destinations, en-route ATFM delay maps, delay and capacity definitions and methodologies, cost tables, air navigation service provider fact sheets and recommendations for the civil-military co-orgniation status report.


This report has been produced by the Performance Review Commission (PRC). The PRC was established by the Permanent Commission of EUROCONTROL in accordance with the ECAC Institutional Strategy 1997. One objective of this strategy is 'to introduce a strong, transparent and independent performance review and target setting system to facilitate more effective management of the European ATM system, encourage mutual accountability for system performance.'
