The 2015 Comparison of Air Traffic Management-Related Operational Performance has just been released. This U.S./Europe benchmarking report updates the previous edition which was published two years ago. The document is a joint publication of the Air Traffic Organization System Operations Services of the FAA and EUROCONTROL on behalf of the European Union in the interest of the exchange of information.

It was prepared in application of Annex 2 of the Memorandum of Cooperation NAT-I-9406 signed between the United States of America and the European Union on 12 February 2013 and managed by a joint European Commission-FAA Performance Analysis Review Committee (PARC). The report builds on the body of work developed since 2009 between the FAA and EUROCONTROL.

The objective of this series of reports is to make a factual high-level comparison of Air Traffic Management performance between the US and Europe. The reports are based on a set of comparable performance indicators, developed jointly and reviewed year after year, creating a sound basis for factual comparisons between countries and world regions. The specific key performance indicators (KPIs) are based on best practices from both the Air Traffic Organization System Operations Services and the performance scheme of the Single European Sky initiative
