Short-term Forecast of Flight Movements - May 2011

The Statistics and Forecast Service (STATFOR) of EUROCONTROL produces a short-term (two years) forecast of IFR flights in Europe. This is published four times per year: independently in May and December, and as an integral part of the medium-term forecast in February and September.

This update of the flight forecast uses the improved method that was first put into operation in February 2009 and enhanced in February 2010. This method is outlined in Annex B. For the current forecast, a number of small changes were necessary to allow the local North African effects to be modelled.
