Data Link Service (DLS) performance reaches historic high

Data Link Services (DLS) performance levels are well on their way to reaching the intended target, doing its part to improve the aviation industry in Europe.

The latest data from August, provided by the Network Manager, shows the lowest levels of connectivity loss between aircraft and ground control (called provider aborts) since the start of DLS implementation.

Meanwhile, round-trip delays (or the delay between the sending and receiving of a message) is now at 95 to 99 per cent performance, meeting all DLS requirements for the first time in aviation history.

This is the result of strong cooperation and hard work delivered by all DLS partners under the coordination of SESAR Deployment Manager, acting as the Data Link Implementation Project Manager.

Let’s keep on delivering Data Link Services implementation in Europe!
