Implementing Partners

Leader: Lufthansa
Contributor: Air France


This Implementation Project aims to deploy the Extended Flight Plan (EFPL) at Lufthansa Group Airlines and Air France. It is fully consistent with the Deployment Programme (DP) 2016 Collaborative Network Operations Plan (NOP) in family 4.2.3 (Interface Air Traffic Management (ATM) Systems to Network Management (NM) Systems). EFPL is considered by Pilot Common Project (PCP) Implementing Regulation (IR) 716/2014 as an enabler for trajectory accuracy to support traffic complexity assessment. The deployment and adaptation of the operational procedures used by the respective Lufthansa Group Airlines and Air France is done in accordance with collaborative flight planning procedures defined by EUROCONTROL/Network Manager (NM), with focus on the exchange of 4D trajectories (EFPL (NM)/eFPL (FF/ICE - Flight and Flow Information for a Collaborative Environment).

This includes the update of systems and procedures with regard to the provision and handling of a 4D light plan as well as the consideration of 4D flight plan replies (NM trajectory and any reject reason). This project requires the provision of technical services and related procedures from NM site.
