A certain number of completed projects are highlighted as it was already possible to provide detailed information on specific benefits brought by these projects. In time, SESAR Deployment Manager will provide such detailed information for every completed project.


Both European airports and the European ATM Network as a whole operate according to their own pre-defined operations plans: the Airport Operations Plan (AOP) and the Network Operations Plan (NOP). To further optimize operations at ground or en-route level and avoid any bottleneck, the AOP and the NOP shall be fully integrated, therefore allowing seamless data and information exchanges amongst all relevant stakeholders.

The Network Manager and several airport operators have already started a joint initiative to allow interfaces between the NOP and at least 17 AOPs from the largest European hubs. Thanks to these interfaces, predictability of traffic will significantly increase and have a positive impact on the reduction of ATFM and reactionary delays. These benefits will add to the ones delivered by the implementation of the Airport Operations Plans (like the reduction of taxi-out waiting times, the increased resilience to unfavorable weather conditions or unexpected events).

Once fully in operation, the project is expected to save almost 3,8 million minutes of flight to European passenger in the next decade, which corresponds to around 143 million euros of monetized benefits.
