EUROCONTROL recognises ENAIRE as a benchmark quality service provider at its annual user forum


On 31 January and 1 February, EUROCONTROL held the “EUROCONTROL Network Manager USER FORUM 2024” at its headquarters in Brussels.

This annual event was attended by more than 300 professionals from the aviation sector, including ENAIRE, and its organisation is a significant contribution to improving the management of European air traffic. This year, the event was held under the slogan “All together for 2024”, with the discussions focusing on how best to manage Europe’s aviation network in 2024.

The following aspects were analysed during the various sessions:

  • Need to meet the agreed and available capacities.
  • Improve how adverse weather is handled.
  • Implement improvements for the harmonised operational use of digital data link functionalities.
  • Have airlines make realistic schedules for operating their flights, including rotations in the airport network.
  • Prioritise the timeliness of the “First rotation” as a critical element in network performance.
  • Ensure the disciplined execution of the routes planned in the flight plans by the various actors involved.

Xavier Benavent, ENAIRE’s Operations Director, gave a presentation in which he underscored ENAIRE’s good operational results in 2023, in particular during the summer season, a time when, despite being a year with record traffic figures, commercial traffic saw a 25 per cent drop in delays thanks to measures and projects implemented by ENAIRE in recent years.

EUROCONTROL named ENAIRE a benchmark air navigation service provider in Europe thanks to the excellent results achieved and the important and continued contribution made to the European Network Manager’s committees and working groups.
