WorkshopPredictability and Flexibility in ATM

In 2024 we would like to continue our series of our InterFAB research workshops in Zagreb! Therefore, FAB CE, FABEC, the University of Zagreb and the German Aviation Research Society have teamed up to have the forum focused on predictability and flexibility in Air Traffic Management. The workshop is scheduled to be held on 18/19 April 2024 in Zagreb/Croatia.

SC OPS prepares for the future

29 November 2023: The FABEC Standing Committee Operations, under the chair of Urs Lauener (5th from the left), met on 21 November 2023 in Luxembourg with a focus on streamlining current activities and preparing for the future. Claudio Clori (3rd from the right), Chairman of the FABEC ASB, emphasised the importance of the new proposed strategy and structure and thanked SC OPS for their outstanding contribution to make operations safer and more efficient in the FABEC core area.

ANA LUXEMBOURG kindly hosted the last formal OPS meeting before its envisaged transition to a renewed form in conjunction with the environment domain in 2024.

DATA CENTRE

The first and foremost strategic objective of all FABEC partners is to ensure that flying is safe. However, they are also committed to improving the efficiency and performance of their airspace and to reducing the environmental impact of aviation, i.e. by keeping delays to a minimum or optimising flight profiles. Our data snapshots show the FABEC performance in 2022 – such as last year’s ATFM delay.

Fast Facts Library

Our Data Cockpit gives you easy access to many different types of data from the ATC world. Year-to-date and monthly views of movement figures, delay performance and flight efficiency are frequently updated and allow you to compare developments and evaluate traffic, delay and environmental patterns. We will continue to expand the topics included over time.

The airspace of the six FABEC States of Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland is one of the busiest and most complex in the world.

The majority of major European airports, major civil airways and military training areas are located in this area. FABEC airspace covers 1.7 million km and handles about 5.8 million flights per year - 55% of European air traffic.
