Publication of the PRB Annual Monitoring report 2017

Find the Annual Monitoring Report, published by the independent group of aviation experts advising the Commission on the performance of the Single European Sky – also known as the Performance Review Body (PRB).

Today, the independent group of aviation experts advising the Commission on the performance of the Single European Sky – also known as the Performance Review Body (PRB) - published its Annual Monitoring Report: 

The PRB Monitoring Report 2017 analyses the data submitted by Member States under the obligations outlined in the performance Scheme Regulation[1]. The data relating to the Safety KPA was compiled by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the year 2017 and presented in the safety report. Data relating to Environment, Capacity and Cost Efficiency KPAs was compiled by EUROCONTROL. The report also considers evolutions during 2018 data to help understand the developments observed in 2017. The analysis is followed by recommendations of the PRB to the European Commission and Member States.

Monitoring the performance of the Member States in air traffic management is a core task of the PRB. In the past months, the discussion about the performance of the European Air Traffic Management has reached the wider public because of the high level of delays during the summer months. This increases the pressure on all stakeholders to identify the reasons for problems and to implement solutions.

The PRB’s analysis are based on four Key Performance Areas: Cost-efficiency, capacity, environment and safety. Capacity and the level of delays remain the main concern of the current European Air Traffic Management system. To improve the capacity performance in Europe, significant changes are required in some Member States. To address the capacity constraints, both long- and short-term measures should be applied. The short-term measures should address immediate capacity concerns for 2019 and the start of Reference Period 3, which will start in 2020. The long-term measures should also aim at investing in technologies that will improve capacity and enable air navigation service providers to manage the forecasted increase in traffic for the next decade.
