EASA publishes a communication to aircraft operators on PBN implementation

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency has published a communication to aircraft operators which seeks to raise awareness of the changes introduced by Regulation (EU) 2018/1048 on Performance-Based Navigation (the ‘PBN IR’).

This Regulation was adopted in 2018 to enhance aircraft operations in the single European sky through the use of PBN. New PBN routes and approach procedures are gradually being implemented to optimise flight operations and allow airspace users to benefit from the safety, capacity, flight efficiency and environmental gains that PBN can offer.

The Agency has created a new webpage to inform stakeholders about the ongoing transition to PBN.
