Eurocontrol signed (15-Jun-2018) an initial 'work programme' detailing how the agency will cooperate with the European Commission (EC) in the area of the Single European Sky's performance and charging schemes. "This work programme implements the cooperation agreement, which was agreed with the EC already late last year", commented Eurocontrol director european civil-military aviation Philippe Merlo. Challenges in the work programme for Eurocontrol's Performance Review Unit include:
- Conducting annual technical assessments of the compliance of unit rates, including reporting on costs exempt from cost sharing;
- Working on the US-Europe performance comparisons in cooperation with the US FAA;
- Performing ad-hoc analysis in support to the areas of performance and charging that require the specific expertise and competences of Eurocontrol, upon request of the Commission;
- Promoting global and regional performance measurement within ICAO.
The work programme will be reviewed and amended on a regular basis. [more - original PR]
