FABEC ANSP performance goals for 2018

  • Despite traffic growth safety remains stable

  • Capacity for app. 50% more traffic and delay per flight at max. 1 minute

  • Reduction of the real unit costs by 17%

  • Reduction of flight extension by 2 km per year until 2010 and accumulated to 10 KM by 2018, leading to

  • A reduction of the impact on environment

Co-operations as enabler to increase performance

Growing ANSP Cooperation


Joint venture



(Single ANSP ?)

(e.g. Border Triangle, FABEC training entity)


(e.g. MoU between DFS and LVNL)

(e.g. new airspace design

between Amsterdam, Maastricht UAC’s Ruhr Sector

and Frankfurt (AMRUFRA))



(e.g. joint international representation)

FABEC partners start from different positions …

  • Civil military co-operation (integration vs. co-location vs. separate military ANSP)

  • Legal form (public authority vs. corporatised organisation)

  • Funding

  • Competitive elements in certain services

... with the consolidation of relevant services in joint ventures

Back up

1. What parts of today’s ANSPs business should merge into a FABEC entity / single ANSP? (1/3)

  • Only those parts of today’s ANSPs are consolidated leading to an increased FABEC performance.

  • These parts are pooled service by service in separate corporate entities

  • According to specific needs, staff and asset transfers are considered

  • Corporate / administrative functions may be provided by one Joint FABEC Management/ Shared Services Entity

2. Who will be the owner of a FABEC entity / the single ANSP?

  • FABEC will very likely evolve over time via different Joint Ventures that may end up in a single service provider

  • Today’s ANSPs are the owners of these FABEC Joint Ventures.

3. What principles should be applied for the governance ?

  • Regulatory governance is exercised by the states  FABEC Council

  • Corporate governance is exercised by the ANSPs  FABEC Joint Ventures

  • Company law directives by the states are also exercised by the Supervisory boards and/or shareholders

4. How should the transition towards a FABEC entity / the single ANSP be designed (roadmap)?

  • Create a FABEC Management private legal entity

  • Start case by case (i.e. service by service), e.g. Border Triangle Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre, Training entity, joint AIM provision

  • Allow different speeds

  • Follow a modular and flexible approach

  • Keep models open and scaleable for later joiners and additional partners
