To implement FRA, which is a key element of ATM Functionality (AF3) - Flexible Airspace Management and Free Route, across three functional airspace blocks (FABs). Namely, NEFAB, DK-SE FAB and UK-IRE FAB. The implementation will support the achievement of the flight efficiency targets for RP2 of the performance scheme. The Performance Review Body (PRB) and the Network Manager (NM) has highlighted the need to pay particular attention to interfaces between the Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs) and the deployment of FRA initiatives to achieve these targets. To reduce fuel consumption by allowing users to flight-plan their preferred trajectories.,To introduce seamless integration among ACCs. To reduce the effort on ATCOs by allowing a more cost-effective approach, while keeping the highest level of safety. The implementation also includes Finavia, LGS, Naviair, NATS, IAA, LFV and Avinor who are applying for funding their contribution towards implementation through the CEF 2015 call. This implementation also includes Isavia who is not applying for INEA funding.
