SES performance in a nutshell

The performance and charging scheme aims at enhancing the performance of air navigation services through a gate-to-gate approach covering both en route and terminal air navigation services. The legislation lays down the conditions to setting targets in the key performance areas of safety, environment, airspace capacity and cost-efficiency through the adoption of European Union-wide performance targets and consistent national or Functional Airspace Blocks (FAB) performance targets.

Performance targets are subject to incentives with a view to encouraging better performance, including the application of a traffic risk sharing mechanism in respect of the key performance area of cost-efficiency. Incentive schemes are setting parameters in a non-discriminatory and transparent manner for the purpose of rewarding or penalising actual performance in relation to the adopted performance targets.

An effective partnership between the main stakeholders, such as air navigation service providers, functional airspace blocks, airports, civil and military airspace users and the Network Manager is of key importance for the achievement of performance targets.

The ESSKY application restricted area

This website also contains a restricted area accessible by clicking on 'Report submission' in the website banner. It has two main functions:

  • Submission of reports by Member States, National Supervisory Authorities (NSA) and Functional Airspace Block bodies to the European Commission;  
  • Data Repository of all non-public documents to be shared by the bodies involved in the implementation of the SES performance and charging schemes.

Access rights to the restricted area are managed by the European Commission. They have been pre-registered for the NSA/Member States, in line with the authorisations granted by the Member State representatives at the Single Sky Committee.

Access to the restricted area is open to authorised NSA/Member States for the submission of their monitoring reports and reporting tables. It is reminded that the submission of the reporting tables is to be initiated from the EUROCONTROL ETNA application.

Registered NSA/member States receive specific information via ESSKY notification or via email before the start of each data collection campaign. This applies to the periodical reports submitted for the monitoring of RP2 and to ad-hoc inputs to be sent by Member States - for instance for the preparation of target setting for RP3.
