FATHOM

Network Manager interactive analysis tool

Sharing operational performance data with the aviation community to improve efficiency and sustainability

Access conditions
FATHOM banner

The EUROCONTROL’s  interactive analysis tool FATHOM allows users to access comprehensive data giving insights into traffic, punctuality, schedule and air traffic flow management (ATFM) delay, fuel burn, route charges, route length and flight time. Users can quickly determine how their actual performance compares to their planned performance, and take measures to adapt their planning in the future. FATHOM is a concrete deliverable of the Operational Excellence Programme put in place by the EUROCONTROL Network Manager to improve the efficiency and sustainability of air traffic in Europe and share operational performance data with the aviation community.

As the aviation sector strives to decarbonise, operational improvements to reduce fuel burn have a key role to play as they can be implemented fairly quickly and at relatively low cost. FATHOM users can easily recognise the potential for fuel burn improvements and cost savings with the metric the EUROCONTROL NM has developed for ideal fuel consumption for city-pairs based on the 10% of most fuel-efficient flights across the network.

    Updated on a daily basis for a 5-week rolling period, FATHOM provides an overview of traffic and ATFM delays, enabling users to compare current traffic and delays with the results from the same period in the previous year. With the ability to drill down into details, the interactive analysis tool also gives insight into:

    • flow traffic illustrating how flights are moving around within the network;
    • ATFM regulations: showing users which regulation affected their flight and the attributed ATFM delays;
    • flight plan event messages: allowing users to gain insight into which event grouping positively or negatively influenced their flight metrics;
    • punctuality results for airlines’ top departure and arrival airports;
    • sector configuration: enabling aircraft operators to understand better an area control centre’s ability to manage the demand based on the available capacity at a specific time.

    Access conditions

    Access to FATHOM can be granted to any operational stakeholders. Unfortunately, we do not provide access to universities, research facilities, or operational users operating outside of the EUROCONTROL/NM area of operations.

    FATHOM users will only see data results relevant to them (i.e. users will not see other operational stakeholders' data results).

    We tailor the data to the user: aircraft operators (AOs) or group, air navigations service providers and airports.
