Performance Plan

In the spirit of the Single European Sky initiative and in compliance with the respective European regulations, the FABEC State representatives agreed on the creation of a common FABEC performance plan. It includes safety, capacity and environmental indicators and each national contribution to the cost-efficiency indicator.

In December 2010, the European Commission adopted the first Europe-wide performance targets for safety, environment, capacity and cost-efficiency. By the end of June 2011, the States submitted the first FAB-wide performance plans showing their contribution towards reaching the targets of the Single European Sky. The performance plans set the targets for the involved organisations (ANSP, MET, NSA, Military). It was the basis for the first reference period (RP1) of performance regulation, which covers the period from 2012 to 2014.

The second reference period (RP2) was lasting from 2015 to 2019. Based on the positive experiences made in the first reference period FABEC States agreed on a common FABEC Performance Plan that has been adopted by the European Commission in 2017.

The EU-wide targets for the third reference period (RP3) (2020-2024) were agreed by the Single Sky Committee on 1 April 2019. Due to the impact of the COVID pandemic on the aviation industry revised EU-wide targets for RP3 were published on 2 June 2021 in Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/891. These targets will form the basis of the European Commission’s evaluation of local targets. The EU-targets are ambitious, in particular when taking into account the need to balance continued investment in measures to improve performance and the cost savings made by the ANSPs in response to the impact of the pandemic on air transport.
