Since June 2013, the Functional Airspace Block Europe Central, known as FABEC is officially in operation. It comprises the airspace of the six FABEC States of Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland and is one of the busiest in the world. FABEC handles about 5.8 million flights per year - 55% of European air traffic.
Baltic FAB and FABEC are happy to invite you to the research workshop "Volatility in Air Traffic and its impact on ATM performance" taking place on 15-16 May 2018 in Warsaw. The conference is being held in partnership with the German Aviation Research society (G.A.R.S.) and the SGH Warsaw School of Economics.

The optimization of safety, capacity and efficiency is at the core of all FABEC activities. This interactive map gives an overview of on-going or planned projects contributing to the FABEC performances targets. It lists local or multilateral projects of the FABEC partners deemed relevant to the FABEC achievement. It is based on the FABEC operations plan which is constantly evolving.Open interactive map
FABEC ANSPs agreed on one common concept of operations to ensure a harmonised process. First implementations took place in December 2017 in the Maastricht airspace and in March 2018 in the upper airspace controlled by DFS. To ensure smooth implementation airspace users, the Network Manager and dispatch providers are working closely together.
Here you can find more information on the implementation in Maastricht (read more) and in the German airspace (read more). The concept of Free Route Airspace has been illustrated in a brief video you can find here.
