Members of aviation industry in Europe call for SESAR Deployment Manager lifecycle extension


All 19 members of SESAR Deployment Alliance, representing airports, airlines, and air navigation providers, sign joint letter expressing their commitment to continue their role in deploying SESAR.

Brussels, Belgium, 25th July 2018 – SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) has received a boost after all 19 members of the SESAR Deployment Alliance (SDA), representing airports, airlines, and air navigation providers, signed a joint letter developing proposals for optimising SDM role and calling for an extension of SDA in SDM’s role beyond its current mandate ending in 2020.

The letter was signed by all the Chief Executive Officers and Chief Operating Officers of the 19 members of the SDA: ACI Europe, Air France, AustroControl, British Airways, Croatia Control, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung, DSNA, EasyJet, ENAIRE, ENAV, HungaroControl, IAA, LFV, Lufthansa, NATS, Naviair, PANSA, ROMATSA, and RYANAIR.

Jonathan Astill, Chairman of SDA’s Board and Nicolas Warinsko, General Manager of the SDA then delivered the letter to the Director General for Mobility & Transport at the European Commission, Henrik Hololei.

The letter expresses the commitment of these 19 members to continue their role as SESAR Deployment Manager in the next Multiannual Financial Framework starting on the 1st January 2021, and speed up the deployment of SESAR by keeping the aviation industry in the cockpit for continuing the modernisation of European skies.

Since its establishment in December 2014 SDA has, in the role of SDM, been successful in translating the Pilot Common Project (PCP) Implementing Regulation in the SESAR Deployment Programme, fully supported by the operational stakeholders.

This wide buy-in translates in to more than 300 projects deploying SESAR within the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) framework under SDM coordination.

This represents more than 70% of the PCP implemented or being implemented by 85 civil and military Implementing Partners in 34 States enabled by EUR1.4 billion of private investments and EUR1.1 billion of EU grants.

As soon as the European Commission decides on the Call 2017, PCP implementation will rise to 85%.

More importantly, SDM and the Implementing Partners have already completed 75 projects for about EUR200 million worth of investments which already deliver actual contribution to Europe’s ATM performance in the range of EUR30 million worth of benefits for this year alone, and more than EUR600 million cumulated until 2030.

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects.

A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders.

The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement.

To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
