A weather decision-support tool for the Europe ATM network

Adverse weather conditions are the first cause of traffic delay: the European Network Manager reported 4,8 million minutes of En-route weather delay in 2018, corresponding to 25% of total delayed En-route air traffic.

The air traffic control declares the ability to absorb the expected traffic with 6 hours of anticipation, therefore accurate and reliable meteorological data are needed by all ATM stakeholders for a better decision-making.

VigiAero aims at bring the power of data and automation to deliver the weather decision-support tool to support the Air Traffic Management Network in Europe. 

Expected benefits are an increase of the weather awareness of all stakeholders, increased safety and informed optimized weather regulations that allow optimum flow management .
