The FABEC Free Route project was set up in 2013. Since then, 651 direct routings (DCTs) of different length and availability have been introduced in FABEC airspace. A large number of them are cross-border DCTs. Overall, FABEC air navigation service providers have set up a network of 1,365 direct routings since 2010. This is a major contribution to complying with European Community Pilot Common Project Regulation (EC PCP) that aims to deploy a direct route network by 2018.
