Executive Summary

National ATM Context


Romania is a EU Member State since the 1st January 2007 and a NATO Member State since the 29th
March 2004.
The Romanian airspace plays a significant role in the European transportation network of the South-East
Is the European region which acts as a bridge between North, South, East and West Europe. While air
traffic has been steadily increasing, forecasts predict further higher traffic demand driven by the economic
growth in the region, by the on-going political changes (the EU political enlargement process, the
emergence of new areas of cooperation and commitment – ECAA, the European Common Aviation Area
Multilateral Agreement, ratified by Romania through Law no.328/22.11.2007 published in the Official
Journal of Romania Part 1 no.48/22.01.2008) as well as by the traditional European tourism and business
travellers.
The separation between the regulatory and the ATM service provider functions is effectively in place in
Romania since many years now.
The target operational concept established by the Government Decree no. 536/2000, aiming at further
reducing the number of en-route ATC centres to a single one in Bucharest, has been finalised in 2012. As
a consequence starting 18th October 2012 ROMATSA operates the Bucharest ACC as well as Bucharest
APP from the ATC centre located in Bucharest. Two more APP units are operated by ROMATSA in the
Arad and Constanta ATC centres.
In the context of the constant effort of the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration (ROMATSA) for
achieving the aim to provide safest, most efficient and environmental friendly air navigation services in
South-Eastern Europe, as from the 14th of November 2013 the Night Free Route Airspace (FRA)
Concept has been successfully implemented within Bucuresti FIR.
In accordance with the provisions of Order of the Minister of Transport no. 1547/2013, since 1st January
2014 the NSA responsible for security matters from MoT was transferred to RCAA. Also, the full
responsibilities for the provision of Aeronautical Information Services were transferred from RCAA in the
administration of ROMATSA at the same date, through Government Decision 645/2013.
The implementation of cross-border activities within Danube FAB was completed on 11th December 2014
and is expected to further enhance optimization of the available route network structure. This will bring
significant benefits of fuel savings and emission reduction and will support achievement of the EU-wide
capacity and environmental targets.
As a further step in FRA implementation, Night Free Route Airspace between Bucuresti CTA and
Budapest FIR (N-FRAB) has been implemented starting from the 20th of August 2015. The aircraft
operators are no longer bound to follow the fixed route network, being now able to plan their flights freely
between the entry and the exit points of the airspace of the two countries, based on their needs.

Traffic and Capacity


Traffic in Romania increased by 2.3% during Summer 2015 (May to October), when compared to
Summer 2014.
The STATFOR medium-term forecast (MTF) predicts an average annual traffic growth between 1.7% and
5.6% throughout the planning cycle 2016-2020, with a baseline growth of 3.7%.
No problems are foreseen for Bucharest ACC in the current planning cycle. The plan is in line with the
high traffic growth capacity requirements, thus reflecting current traffic developments at the ACC.

ESSIP Objective Implementation
As presented in the summarizing table below, part of the objectives are completed, some are partially
completed and some are late.
It should be noted that the "late" status of one objective (AOP04.1) is due to the fact that Romania joined
later the applicability area of this airport related objective. The A-SMGCS Level 2 (AOP04.2) is currently
under implementation at LROP: A-SMGCS control equipment installation is finalised, the system being
technically approved, currently under operational tests.
In house development for Integrated Briefing (INF04) is in progress. Currently the application has a trial
status. Based on the input received in 2014 and 2015 from the end-users the application has been
updated and is expected to be further improved before starting operations.
For the implementation of AOP03, most of the recommendations contained in the European Action Plan
for Prevention of Runway Incursions (EAPPRI) Ed. 2.0 have been already implemented. Related actions
are in progress to implement the recommendations contained in the EAPPRI Ed. 2.0 that have not been
yet implemented.
CDA (ENV01) is applied to the tactical phase; further study on publishing CDA procedures is under
development. CDA approach is authorized on pilots' request.
For the implementation of ATC07.1 we are in the process of identifying the solution for AMAN
implementation, in order to develop the operational, technical and safety requirements for AMAN in the
context of the new ATM system 2015+.
No special difficulties were encountered in the implementation of the objectives during the reporting
period

Introduction

The Local Single Sky ImPlementation documents (LSSIPs), as an integral part of the ESSIP/LSSIP
mechanism, constitute a short/medium term implementation plan containing ECAC States’ actions to
achieve the Implementation Objectives as set out by the ESSIP and to improve the performance of their
national ATM System. The LSSIP document – Year 2015 describes the situation in the State at the end of
December 2015.

The LSSIP documents are structured into 6 chapters to better differentiate the Stakeholder(s)
accountable for the information contained in each of them:

 Chapter 1 provides an overview of the ATM institutional arrangements within the State, the
membership of the State in various international organizations, the organizational structure of the
main ATM players - civil and military - and their responsibilities under the national legislation. In
addition, an overview of the Airspace Organization and Classification, the ATC Units, the ATM
systems operated by the main ANSP are also provided in this chapter.

 Chapter 2 provides a comprehensive picture of the situation of Air Traffic, Capacity and ATFM
Delay per each ACC in the State. It shows the evolution of Air Traffic and Delay in the last five
years and the forecast for the next five years. It gives also the achieved performance in terms of
delay during the summer season period and the planned projects assumed to offer the required
capacity which will match the foreseen traffic increase and keep the delay at the agreed
performance level;

 Chapter 3 provides a set of recommendations extracted from the ESSIP Report which are
relevant to the state/stakeholders concerned. The state reports how they have handled those
recommendations and the actions taken during the year to address the concerns expressed by
those recommendations;

 Chapter 4 provides a set of the main ATM national projects which contribute directly to the
implementation of the ATM MP OIs and/or Enablers and ESSIP related Objectives. The
description, timescale, progress made and expected contribution to the ATM Key Performance
Areas are provided by the states per each project included in this chapter;

 Chapter 5 deals with the ATM Regional Coordination. It provides an overview of the FAB
cooperation and Projects and also all other regional initiatives and Projects which are out of the
FAB scope. The content of this chapter generally is developed and agreed in close cooperation
between the states concerned;

 Chapter 6 contains high-level information on progress and plans of each ESSIP Objective. The
information for each ESSIP Objective is presented in boxes giving a summary of the progress
and plans of implementation for each Stakeholder. The conventions used are presented at the
beginning of the section.

Note: Chapter 6 is completed with a separate document called LSSIP Level 2. This document
consists of a set of tables organised in line with the list of ESSIP Objectives. Each table contains
all the actions planned by the four national stakeholders to achieve their respective Stakeholder
Lines of Action (SLoAs) as established in the ESSIP.

Note: The information contained in Chapter 6 is deemed sufficient to satisfy State reporting
requirements towards ICAO in relation to ASBU (Aviation System Block Upgrades) monitoring.

1.1.3 Airspace Classification and Organisation

ICAO airspace classification is applied within Bucuresti FIR.


Airspace in BUCURESTI FIR is classified according to the provisions of ICAO Annex 11 and in
compliance with the EUROCONTROL Airspace Strategy for ECAC States (OI 1A), as follows:
1. Class C airspace, that comprises:
- All ATS routes in BUCURESTI FIR
- All Aerodrome Control Zones (CTR): Arad, Bacău, Baia Mare, Băneasa, Otopeni, Cluj, Constanţa,
Craiova, Iaşi, Oradea, Satu Mare, Sibiu, Suceava, Târgu Mureş, Timişoara, Tulcea;
- TMA CONSTANŢA, TMA ARAD.
- Airspace in BUCURESTI FIR above FL105.
The ICAO airspace classification of Class C airspace above FL 105 is applicable since Nov. 2003 through
joint MoT- MoD order no 693 – M173/ 2003, published in the Official Journal of Romania no. 165/ 2004.
The ICAO airspace classification of Class C airspace below FL 105 is implemented in Romania by joint
MoT – MoD Order 53/ 22.01.07 and M20/ 30.01.07, published in the Official Journal of Romania no.
107/13.02.2007.
2. Class A airspace, that comprises: TMA BUCURESTI.
3. Class G airspace, that comprises: all Control Zones of Aerial Work and Airfields of Sports Activity,
all airspace in BUCURESTI FIR not designated with another class and Restricted Areas

1.1.4 Free Route Airspace


In the context of the constant effort of the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration (ROMATSA) for
achieving the aim to provide safest, most efficient and environmental friendly air navigation services in
South-Eastern Europe, as from the 14th of November 2013 within Bucuresti FIR has been implemented
the Night Free Route Airspace (FRA) Concept.
A consultation coordinated by ICAO EUR/NAT Office has been also successfully made at States level, in
accordance with the provisions of Annex 11, paragraph 2.2.2 and the established procedure for the
amendment of the European Air Navigation Plan.
As a further step in FRA implementation, Night Free Route Airspace between Bucuresti CTA and
Budapest FIR (N-FRAB) has been implemented starting from the 20th of August 2015. The aircraft
operators are no longer bound to follow the fixed route network, being now able to plan their flights freely
between the entry and the exit points of the airspace of the two countries, based on their needs.

General principles of Free Route Airspace operations:


a. Horizontal and vertical limits of the implementation area:
- The lateral limits of N-FRAB are defined as the airspace encompassed by the lateral limits of
Budapest FIR and Bucuresti CTA.
- The vertical limits of N-FRAB are defined as follows:
- FL105 – FL660 in Bucuresti CTA, excluding TMAs, FL 105 – FL245 within sector DF1,
FL245 – FL660 within sector DF2
- Ground – FL660 in Budapest FIR
Note:
- for lateral limits of Bucuresti CTA, see AIP Romania ENR 2.1,
- for lateral limits of DF1 and DF2, see AIP Romania ENR 2.2.2

b. Class of airspace
- N-FRAB has been implemented in Class C airspace, with the exception of TMAs and CTRs.

c. FRA Operating hours


- N-FRAB is available from 2300 to 0500 UTC during the winter time period and from 2200 to
0400 UTC during the summer time period.

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 8 Released Issue


d. Planning aspects
- During N-FRAB, users will be able to plan user-preferred trajectories through the use of
published FRA relevant waypoints included in ENR 4.4, and relevant Radio Navigation Aids
(ENR 4.1) with or without reference to the published ATS route network, which remains
available during FRA operating hours.

- The access from/ to TMA/ CTR areas are effected using the fixed ATS route network, using
dedicated connection points published in AIP Romania.

- Segments between waypoints will be indicated by means of “DCT” instruction. Within N-


FRAB there will be no limitations on the length of “DCT” neither on the number of
intermediate points.

- Cross-Border DCTs are NOT allowed, except over the Romanian-Hungarian border where
FRA Operation is permitted according to the RAD published by EUROCONTROL (see ENR
1.10 for details).

- During the availability of N-FRAB significant points established on the common FIR border
shall be considered as intermediate points.
The planning of DCT segments closer than 3 NM to the N-FRAB border is not allowed.

- During the availability of N-FRAB, the rules concerning the use of mandatory intermediate
points for traffic inbound LROP prescribed in ENR 3.5.2 shall be applied for the final phase of
flight.

- All Night Free Route operation within N-FRAB constraints, exceptions and restrictions, if any,
are published via the RAD and promulgated in accordance with ENR 1.10

e. Reference materials within the national Aeronautical Information Publication:


- IFR significant points and en-route radio navigation aids are published in AIP Romania,
subsections ENR 4.4 and ENR 4.1.

through Order of the Minister of Transport no.
1547/2013.

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 11 Released Issue


State Safety Programme was released. Specific procedures will be issued and afterwards the state safety
levels will be set up taking into consideration the safety levels already established by the ANSP, taking
into account the ECAC level overall safety minima of 1,55 x 10 8 accidents per flight/hour, set in RACR-
ESARR 4.
Safety performance monitoring was performed during 2014 according to the applicable SES requirements
(Regulation (UE) no. 1034/2011), and national regulation RACR-REAC transposing (EC) Directive
2003/42.
At national level, the Civil Aviation Safety Investigation and Analysis Centre shall publish each year a
report containing the civil aviation occurrence information collected through the mandatory/voluntary
reporting system with a view to informing the general public about the level of safety in civil aviation.
Twice per year, ROMATSA Safety Committee has to assess safety performance of ROMATSA based on
reports issued by Safety and Quality Directorate.
The safety data have been collated and reported to EUROCONTROL in terms of yearly high level safety
indicators, as provided in the Annual Safety Template (AST).
The main strategic action is to improve regular safety performance monitoring and analysis of incidents
trends by:
 Implementation of an Automated Safety Reporting System. The system will facilitate the process of
reporting, investigation and dissemination by means of an intranet network using ECCAIRS software.
The project (SMART Project) started in 2005 and it is still under development. ECCAIRS is also being
used at the moment accordingly.
 Implementation of an Automated Safety Monitoring Tool as a complementary system to the actual
human reporting system.

1.2.1.2 MoT – ATD/RCAA

 The Air Transport Directorate (DTA), manages the regulatory responsibilities, including drawing up
high level policies for air transport. Economic regulation is performed with participation of MoT’s
Economic & Administrative Directorate.
 By Law No.55/2010 for approval and modification of the Government Ordinance No.26/2009, the
Department of Air Transport Investigation, part of the General Directorate of Control and Accident
Transport Investigation (GDoCATI) from MoT has been transformed into the Civil Aviation Safety
Investigation and Analysis Centre (CIAS), public institution with legal personality, subordinated to
MoT. CIAS is the independent body responsible for technical investigations of the civil aviation
accidents and serious incidents, having its own budget. CIAS has become functional with the
promulgation of the Government Decision No.1013/2010 which approved the Regulation of
organization and functioning of the CIAS. The main activity of CIAS is based on Regulation (EU)
996/2010 (for the Civil Aviation Safety Investigation) and Directive 2003/42/EC (for civil aviation
occurrence reporting).

According to Art. 5 of the Aviation Act, Government Decision 405/1993 (establishing the Romanian Civil
Aeronautical Authority (RCAA) as an autonomous, independent from ATM service provision and self-
financed organisation) and to some other specific regulations promulgated by MoT after 1998, most of
MoT’s safety and security regulatory responsibilities were delegated in the remit of the RCAA, such as
drafting national regulations (up to the approval of the national specific regulations, which is undertaken
by MoT), issuing specific procedures and instructions to apply the national regulations and the day-to-day
safety supervisory tasks pertaining to ANS provided to GAT.
It should also be noted that economic regulation of ANS is retained by MoT. However, the amendment by
Law 399/2005 of the Civil Air Code has introduced the supervisory function in the national regulatory
framework, as required by (EC) Regulation No. 549/2004 laying down the framework for the creation of
the Single European Sky. This enables that the RCAA is designated by MoT as the NSA for Romania for
all specific tasks laid down by SES legislation. Since 1st January 2014, the NSA responsible for security
matters was transferred from MoT to RCAA, through Order of the Minister of Transport no. 1547/2013.

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 12 Released Issue


The Law 399/ 2005 amending the Air Code of Romania entered into force since 1st of July 2006 and,
starting with July 2006, RCAA has been designated as NSA for Romania by MoT Order no. 1185/2006,
published in the Official Journal of Romania Part I no. 602/12.07.2006. According to this MoT Order,
RCAA is designated to perform the roles and responsibilities of a NSA in compliance with SES legislation.
Starting August 2005 several organisational changes have been implemented within the RCAA, including
the full separation (at functional level) of RCAA’s AIS Department (that used to provide aeronautical
information services falling under the SARPs of ICAO Annex 15 - the whole integrated package of
aeronautical information except for the PIBs) from the RCAA departments which fulfill the role and tasks
of the NSA. Since 1st January 2014, the AIS department from RCAA, responsible for providing the IAIP
except PIB was transferred from RCAA to ROMATSA, through Government Decision 645/2013. In
Romania, as EU Member State, all EC Regulations are entirely binding and directly applicable, including
SES legislation which is in force for the time being.
The Romanian Civil Air Code (established by law) provides the general requirements concerning the
safety regulatory approval and oversight of all ATM systems and organisations, and for personnel
licensing. The RCAA covers a wide area of activities, including certification, such as:
 Certification of the ANS service providers in compliance with the SES certification processes required
by the EC regulations. During 2006, RCAA developed an audit programme consistent with the ANSP
certification process within SES as required by the SES (EC) Regulations (No. 549-552/2004) and the
Commission’s Regulation (EC) No. 2096/2005 laying down the Common Requirements for the
provision of air navigation services. At the end of 2006 RCAA issued for ROMATSA the Certificate
no 01/ 2006 for air navigation services provision, with revision number 1 applicable from 1 January
2007. Further, revision number 2 applicable from 1 January 2010, and revision number 3 applicable
from 5th of November 2011 were issued. A second certificate no. CN 07/2012 was issued which
replaces the previous one and is valid until 15.12.2018. For the AIS Dept. within RCAA the following
certificates were issued: in June 2007 the Certificate no. 02/ 2007, in June 2008 the Certificate no.
03/2008, in June 2009 the Certificate no. 04/2009, in June 2011 the Certificate no. 05/2011, in June
2012 the Certificate no. 06/2012, and in July 2013 the Certificate no. 08/2013. Since January 2007,
RCAA has started to annually monitor the ongoing compliance of the air navigation service providers
with all the applicable requirements and conditions attached to their certificates.
 for procedures (acceptance by RCAA as NSA of all safety arguments associated with procedures
related to either new functional systems or changes to existing functional systems is necessary
before actual implementation),
 for the ANS personnel (licensing of air traffic controllers and of some safety significant categories of
ATM technical and engineering personnel, licensing of MET and AIS personnel), and
 for ATM systems/constituents (acceptance by RCAA as NSA of all safety arguments related to either
a new functional system or changes to existing functional systems is necessary before actual
implementation).

Description:
Objective completed: The enhanced AMHS has been implemented and migration from AFTN to AMHS
completed early 2015.

REC-2014-06 The ANSPs within a FAB should coordinate their system renewal
(equal to REC- and capability evolution more closely in order to deliver larger FAB ANSPs
2013-15) scale performance improvements to customers.
Corrective actions taken:
YES

Description:
The recommendation is taken under consideration.
Due to different system lifecycles, the DANUBE FAB ANSPs consider that it is unfeasible at this stage to
implement a unitary system renewal process within DANUBE FAB. ROMATSA and BULATSA are
synchronously planning activities to implement system functionalities and capabilities with a careful
consideration on the interoperability between the two ATM systems.
The evolution of DANUBE FAB’s technical infrastructure and system development is carried out in line
with the DANUBE FAB Concept of Operations, European Regulations and with the Deployment
Programme, the European Single Sky Implementation (ESSIP) and the respective Local Single Sky
Implementations (LSSIPs). The harmonisation of the objectives for the European ATM Network (EATMN)
systems and services supporting the future DANUBE FAB environment is achieved through “Transfer
Activities and Required System Changes for Implementation within DANUBE FAB” document which was
created based on “DANUBE FAB Refined Target Architecture 2016”.

Chapter 4 - National Projects

Performance of the local ATM system will also be improved by the implementation of the
following national Projects:

Romanian Target Operational Concept


For the provision of air traffic services ROMATSA operates the en-route facilities of Bucuresti
ACC and all the civil Aerodrome Control Towers and the Approach Control units within Bucuresti
FIR. The reduction of the Bucuresti ACC physical locations from five to three that was achieved
in November 2003 by means of a new integrated and highly interoperable ATM system
significantly increased the capacity of Bucuresti ACC. Phases II and III of this project were
finalized for pending and additional operational requirements implementation. Further reduction
of the en-route centres from three to two was achieved in 2010.
The target operational concept established by the Government Decree no. 536/2000, aiming at
further reducing the number of en-route ATC centres to a single one in Bucharest, has been
finalised in 2012. As a consequence starting 18th October 2012 ROMATSA operates the
Bucharest ACC as well as Bucharest APP from the ATC centre located in Bucharest. Two more
APP units are operated by ROMATSA in the Arad and Constanta ATC centres.
The above rationalisation is connected to the existing of appropriate and safe contingency
measures.
The implementation of the Romanian Target Operational Concept consists of the following main
objectives:
 Constanta APP unit located in Constanta and the associated Constanta TMA (done)
 Arad APP unit located in Arad and the associated Arad TMA (done)
 Transfer the en-route ATC activities from Constanta location to Bucharest location (done)
 Transfer the en-route ATC activities from Arad location to Bucharest location (done)
 Provision of approach ATS for NAPOC TMA from Bucharest APP Unit, associated with
the implementation of NAPOC TMA (2016)
 Upgrade of the Flight Information Centre in Bucharest (done)
 Development of Contingency Room 1 in Bucharest (done)
 Development of Contingency Room 2 outside Bucharest location (2016)

Chapter 5 - Regional Co-ordination

5.1 FAB Co-ordination

The DANUBE FAB is currently under phase 4 – FAB Implementation phase. The State Agreement on the
establishment of the DANUBE FAB between the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania was signed in
December 2011 and was ratified by both governments in 2012. The Agreement entered into force on
16 November 2012, thus ensuring the legal basis for the FAB ahead of the SES deadline.

DANUBE FAB project phases


The DANUBE FAB State Agreement provides the overarching legal framework for the governance of the
FAB. The core bodies are:
Governing Council: provides oversight and approval of key FAB documentation (annual
plans, safety policy, airspace policy, performance plans etc).
NSA Board: provides a formal coordination and an interface between the NSAs
involved in supervisory tasks at DANUBE FAB level.
ANSP Board: oversees implementation of the FAB at the ANSP level via the ANSP
agreement.
Airspace Policy Body: responsible for enhancing the joint civil-military coordination process and
for the flexible use of airspace application within the cross-border
airspace.

DANUBE FAB Governance Structure

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 33 Released Issue


 
 
The ANSP Board is supported in the implementation of the FAB through its working arrangements,
including specialised Standing Committees or other supporting bodies established in accordance with
their respective Rules of Procedures.
The ANSP Board is supported by the Strategy and Planning Standing Committee (SAPSC), which is
composed of ANSP experts for all DANUBE FAB cooperation domains. In turn, SAPSC is supported by
the Operations Standing Committee (OSC) which carries out work in the areas of operations, technical
and training, and by the Safety, Quality, Environment and Security Standing Committee (SQSESC) which
performs the necessary tasks in its domain areas.

DANUBE FAB ANSP Working Structure

The Administrative Cell supports the SAPSC and is guided in its work by a set of overarching documents
including the Project Management Plan (including the Communications Plan and Quality Management
Plan) as well as the DANUBE FAB State Agreement and ANSP Cooperation Agreement.

5.1.1 Working structure


The DANUBE FAB governance structure represents the roles and responsibilities of the involved parties.
However, in order to ensure effective project management, it is essential that the governance structure is
complemented by a clear work structure.

DANUBE FAB Working Structure

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 34 Released Issue


 
 
5.1.2 TEN-T Funding
DANUBE FAB ANSPs successfully applied for TEN-T funds to assist the execution of studies and
simulations. Elements of FRA and Air-Ground Data Link (AGDL) implementation are financially supported
by the European Commission, and the activities have been designed to determine the most cost efficient
ways to implement these concepts, whilst optimising the benefits for all ATM stakeholders. The TEN-T
Action is seen as an important enabler for next phases of the FRA initiative implementation.
DANUBE FAB’s application was one of the few successful proposals in the field of ATM, and the only
successful FAB proposal approved for financial support from the TEN-T programme under the Multi-
Annual Work Programme for grants in the period 2007-2013. The activities funded under TEN-T were
completed in December 2015 as planned, with the completion of the Free Route Airspace Simulations
(See section 5.1.3.1.1).

5.1.3 Strategy & Planning


In order to meet its objective, DANUBE FAB has developed the Strategic Program, which provides a high
level overview of how and when the strategic objectives are to be achieved. The Strategic Objectives are
focussed around the Key Performance Areas of the RP2 Performance Plan and support elements, to
ensure the continued evolution of the DANUBE FAB.

5.1.3.1 Achievements for 2015


DANUBE FAB has developed in several key areas during 2015. As well as retaining a core focus on
airspace projects within the FAB framework, DANUBE FAB have been looking further afield towards
cooperation initiatives with other FABs and State partners. An overview of some high priority initiatives is
given below.

5.1.3.1.1 Free Route Airspace


DANUBE FAB conducted comprehensive Real Time Simulations at EUROCONTROL’s Experimental
Centre in October and November 2015. 78 DANUBE FAB controllers and pilots took part in the study
which aimed to assess the conditions under which extension up to permanent 24 hour FRA is possible.

DANUBE FAB Free Route Airspace (first step)

LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 35 Released Issue


 
 
The results of these studies, regarding options for airspace design and requirements for system evolution
will form a basis for the next two phases of the project: Full Free Route Airspace at FAB level will be
gradually implemented by 2019, contributing towards the EU-wide performance targets and enhancing
the optimised use of airspace.

5.1.3.1.2 DANUBE FAB cooperation


An agreement between DANUBE FAB and FAB CE was signed in October 2015 to establish regular
cooperation, especially in the operations, technical, training, performance and safety areas. This follows a
similar agreement signed with BLUE MED FAB in October 2014. Collectively, these agreements form a
triangle of cooperation for performance improvement in the South-Eastern and Central European region.
Regarding the extension of the geographical scope, the long-term strategy of DANUBE FAB is to apply a
transitional process in which other States are initially granted observer status. In October 2015, the
Republic of Macedonia was formally awarded the observer status and attending delegates were invited to
take a role in observing ongoing FAB initiatives. The European Commission was also granted observer
status to DANUBE FAB in order to increase the ability of the Commission to monitor FAB progress.
At a wider EU level, an Inter-FAB Coordination Workshop (IFCW) was hosted by DANUBE FAB in
October 2015. This workshop formally established the Terms of Reference between all nine FABs in
Europe, forming a unique platform that brings together political, regulatory and service provision
representatives under one roof.

5.1.3.1.3 Performance
DANUBE FAB faced significant performance related challenges in 2015 both under or outside its direct
control. One of the main challenges was the assessment of the European Commission regarding
DANUBE FAB Performance Plan for the second reference period (2015-2019). In March 2015 DANUBE
FAB targets for safety, environment and cost-efficiency had been assessed as being consistent with the
EU-wide targets, while those for capacity had been assessed as not consistent, according to the
European Commission decisions no. 347 and 348/2015. Revised capacity targets submitted by DANUBE
FAB were confirmed to be consistent by the PRB in October 2015 and new EC decision is expected to be
adopted in early 2016.
Another major challenge has been the significant increase of traffic and the evolution of main
macroeconomic indicators with direct impact on performance targets. Despite these, DANUBE FAB took
all the necessary measures to fulfil its capacity and cost-efficiency targets while improving safety.

5.1.3.2 Future plans


According to the DANUBE FAB Annual Plan for 2016, the High Priority Projects represent the most
urgent tasks or activities to be undertaken or implemented in 2016 within DANUBE FAB. These Priority
Projects aim to ensure the focus is on significant or vital projects within DANUBE FAB, and therefore
represent the areas where real work is necessary in order to ensure the FAB meets EU requirements or
to ensure evolution of the FAB.

These projects are:


5.1.3.2.1 Free Route Airspace
DANUBE FAB has committed to implementing FAB-wide Free Route Airspace beyond nightime
operations by 2019. From 2013-2015, this activity has been supported by TEN-T funds. The activities
culminated in a large scale Real Time Simulation which was conducted in Autumn 2015. DANUBE FAB
will implement Full Free Route Airspace based on a phased approach until 2019.

5.1.3.2.2 Technical Rationalisation and Infrastructure


DANUBE FAB jointly plans its CNS infrastructure development and where possible conducts common
procurement. The objective of this project is to further develop the cooperation in the technical domain by
identifying opportunities to coordinate, rationalize and/or share technical infrastructure, thereby
generating cost savings.
LSSIP Year 2015 Romania 36 Released Issue
 
 
The key projects in this are in 2016 include utilising the operational benefits of the jointly procured VCS
system, such as cross border use of radio communications, investigating joint participation in SESAR,
defining a common DANUBE FAB Wide Area Multilatteration initiative, and working towards joint
participation on Joint PENS.

5.1.3.2.3 Inter-FAB Cooperation


DANUBE FAB established cooperation mechanisms at ANSP level with BLUE MED FAB and FAB CE. It
is a priority in 2016 to build on these agreements to search to initiate new projects or extend existing
projects regionally to neighboring FABs.
In Q1 2016, internal discussions between experts will be held to establish possibile areas of cooperation
in both operational and technical areas. These ares will then be proposed as topics for discussion with
FAB CE and BLUE MED FAB, and elaborated in bilatteral meetings. Possibly approaches will be
presented to the ANSP board for approval.
DANUBE FAB is also an active stakeholders in the newly formed Inter-FAB coordination platform, having
hosted the most recent workshop in Bucharest in October 2015. Maintaining an active role within this
platform into 2016 is also a priority. To that end, DANUBE FAB is developing the Inter-FAB
communication plan for the platform in Q1 2016, with the aim of defining methods of communication
between FABs to further enhance inter-FAB coordination and cooperation.

5.1.3.2.4 FAB Enlargement


As a gateway to Europe, DANUBE FAB is in the position to expand the influence of SES and is open for
accession of neighbouring countries. It is a long term strategy of DANUBE FAB to extend its geographical
scope. Therefore, DANUBE FAB has identified the need to conduct a pre-feasibility study for FAB
enlargement. The study will analyse DANUBE FAB’s regional environment and investigate the
compatibility of neighbouring 3rd countries with DANUBE FAB. The study is planned to be completed by
Q3 2016, the options of which will be presented to the 8th ANSP Board.

5.1.3.2.5 Joint Participation in European Initiatives


DANUBE FAB proactively seeks opportunities for collaborative engagement in European initiatives. In
2016, DANUBE FAB partners will continue to search for areas of cooperation in areas such as SESAR,
Centralised Services amongst other activities.

5.2 FAB Projects

5.2.1 Free Route Airspace

Project Name:  Free Route Airspace  Project Code:  A65 | A66 

Organisation(s)  ROMATSA (RO), BULATSA (BG) 

Description/Scope/Objectives 

FRA Operations Implementation in DANUBE FAB as a “Project” includes, inter alia, actions for the definition of a
common operational concept, common operating and training procedures and development of a safety case for
FRA Operations within DANUBE FAB, to give assurance that provision of ATS in DANUBE FAB, after
implementation of FRA Operations, will remain at least as safe as today or will improve safety.
This Project included a large scale Real Time Simulation (RTS) to prove the most applicable extension of FRA
operation hours during day and night. The aim of this activity was to focus on the extension of DANUBE FAB FRA
Operations during night towards full (24 hour) free route operations implementation. DANUBE FAB will implement
Full Free Route Airspace based on a phased approach until 2019. Phase I – Implementation of night Free Route
operations within national boundaries was completed on 14th November 2013, six months ahead of schedule.

Schedule/Implementation planning 

10.07.2012 – 31.12.2019 

Status 

The DANUBE FAB stakeholders invested significant effort in order to successfully implement phase 1 of the
DANUBE FAB FRA project (i.e. FRA at national level at night time) by 14th November 2013 – six months ahead of
schedule and earlier than the expectations of the NSP (planned for 2014). This marks the successful
implementation of the first phase of FRA within DANUBE FAB, with two further phases to follow, unlocking
increased benefits for airspace users.
The inception of FRA project in DANUBE FAB has started to fully open the airspace, providing virtually
unrestricted flight planning freedom without a pre-defined set of Direct Routing (DCT) options. Initial FRA project
set-up, combined with other network improvements provides an unmatched performance in terms of flight
trajectory efficiency.
DANUBE FAB conducted comprehensive Real Time Simulations at EUROCONTROL’s Experimental Centre in
October and November 2015. 78 DANUBE FAB controllers and pilots took part in the study which aimed to
assess the conditions under which extension up to permanent 24 hour FRA is possible. The results of these
studies, formed a basis for the next two phases of the project: Night Free Route Airspace at FAB level up to full
FRA to be implemented on a phased approach until 2019, contributing towards the EU-wide performance targets
and enhancing the optimised use of airspace.

2013 (according to the data provided by the PRB). Statistics for 2015 are expected to be
published by the PRB in mid 2016.
Extension of Free Route operations outside the night period (daytime FRA) by 2019 will
enable full benefit and contribution to the EU-wide environmental target. 

Cost efficiency  FRA will contribute towards the achievement of EU-wide cost-efficiency target, through
maintaining the workload levels and high throughput. This will make a further contribution
towards the optimised use of airspace.

Cooperation Activities 

Cooperation activities are ongoing regarding the stepped FRA implementation in essential enablers such as
airspace design, coordination procedures, CDPLC implementation etc.

5.3 Regional cooperation

5.3.1 Regional Cooperation Initiatives

5.3.1.1 GateOne Initiative


The DANUBE FAB ANSPs are signatories parties of the GateOne cooperation agreement on the creation of the
regional ANSP platform of Central and Eastern Europe which was signed by the designated 13 ANSPs covering 3
existing FABs (Baltic FAB, DANUBE FAB and FAB CE) and 2 non-EU FIRs (Belgrade and Skopje), with the aim
to promote the efficiency of European ATM through an enhanced cooperation among the participating service
providers and to ensure a more powerful and coordinated role of the countries of the region in the European
decision-making processes.
Since the GateOne (GO) establishment, three meetings were held at the level of Coordination Committee and
CEO, the last held in December 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The CEOs of the GO Initiative agreed to strengthen their
operational and technical cooperation. As a pilot common project the GATE ONE CEOs agreed to investigate
possibilities to synchronize cross-border Free Route (FRA) implementation in the region for the airspace
serviced by GO members.
GO members will continue with their ongoing FAB development and national ATM improvement projects. GATE
ONE FRA will be built step by step, making best use of the lessons learnt from similar regional initiatives and of
benefits from SES/SESAR deployment.
Another significant outcome of the meeting was the accession of SMATSA (the Serbian-Montenegro ANSP) and
M-NAV (Macedonian ANSP) to the GO initiative.

5.3.1.2 Inter-FAB Coordination Platform


As an output of the first meeting of all 9 FABs in Amsterdam in November 2014, there was a willingness to set up a
permanent Inter-FAB Cooperation Platform, which was further analysed as how this would be achieved in a working
meeting in Zurich (March 2015). Significant effort was therefore put in prior to the workshop to ensure that the
workshop developed and shaped the platform as much as possible.
In October 2015 DANUBE FAB hosted the second Inter-FAB coordination workshop in Bucharest, with the aim of
shaping the platform as much as possibly. Delegates from all 9 Functional Airspace Blocks were in attendance
from a range of institutions: Ministries of Defence, Ministries of Transport, National Supervisory Authorities and Air
Navigation Service Providers. This workshop formally established the Terms of Reference between all nine FABs
in Europe, forming a unique platform that brings together political, regulatory and service provision
representatives.
The platform aims to improve FAB performance through wide ranging cooperation and coordination and provides
a place to share lessons learned about successful FAB projects, giving ideas for collective areas of development.
The workshop showed the willingness for FABs to form a strong and cohesive voice in Europe, demonstrating that
FABs exist, they cooperate, and intend to cooperate even closer to improve the European ATM Network.

5.3.1.3 Bilatteral Inter-FAB cooperation agreements


An agreement between DANUBE FAB and FAB CE was signed in October 2015 to establish regular cooperation,
especially in the operations, technical, training, performance and safety areas. This follows a similar agreement
signed with BLUE MED FAB in October 2014. Collectively, these agreements form a triangle of cooperation for
performance improvement in the South-Eastern and Central European region.

5.3.1.4 Cooperation initiatives with third countries


Several DANUBE FAB initiatives to cooperate with non-EU States have been undertaken. It is a long-term
strategy of DANUBE FAB to extend its geographical scope; for this purpose the DANUBE FAB has developed an
Observers policy to enable other States and FABs to participate in order to ease the transition towards full
partnership. To this end, at the 6th Governing Council in October 2015, the Republic of Macedonia was formally
granted the observer status allowing particiption in DANUBE FAB Governing Council sessions. The European
Commission was also granted observer status to DANUBE FAB as a tool to monitor FAB progress.

Developments 

Organisation(s)  ROMATSA (RO), BULATSA (BG), HungaroControl (HU), SMATSA (SR), UkSATSE (UA),
MOLDATSA (MD) 

Description/Scope/Objectives 
Further improvements of ATS network in South-East Europe have been addressed during the RNDSG, SEERM
and RDGE meetings. The main objectives are to review the route network improvement proposals raised by States,
IATA, IACA, ERA and EUROCONTROL. Within the context of these proposals, Romania is currently improving
cooperation on regional route network development with all its neighbours, as follows: Bulgaria (BULATSA),
Hungary (HungaroControl), Serbia (SMATSA), Ukraine (UkSATSE) and Moldova (MOLDATSA). The interface with
Bulgaria is subject to regional and bi-lateral meetings. The implementation of interface improvements with Bulgaria
has been done before the summer season 2009 and is currently taken into consideration under the Danube FAB.
In 2012 important bilateral decisions between ROMATSA and HungaroControl were taken to improve the airspace
interface and the cooperation in technical domain regarding major improvements of the ATS routes at the common
interface, and of the air traffic flows, over the Bucharest – Budapest FIRs border.
In 2012 an operational and technical meeting was held in Chisinau in order to improve the cooperation between
ROMATSA, UkSATSE (Ukrainian ANSP) and MOLDATSA (Moldovan ANSP). The meeting provided an overview
of the existing ATM systems and plans for the future, of the existing institutional arrangements and aviation
legislation, and of the route network development and free route airspace.
In the context of the constant effort of the Romanian Air Traffic Services Administration (ROMATSA) for achieving
the aim to provide safest, most efficient and environmental friendly air navigation services in South-Eastern Europe,
as from the 14th of November 2013 the Night Free Route Airspace (FRA) Concept has been successfully
implemented within Bucuresti FIR . This concept allows the airspace users to freely plan a route via published way
points and radio navigation aids without complying with the existing system of air routes. Free Route Airspace is
available from 2300 to 0500 UTC during the winter time period and from 2200 to 0400 UTC during the summer time
period for all aircraft performing flights above flight level 105.
In the long-term the application of the concept will result in reduced emissions from aviation activities and will
contribute to achieving a faster, more efficient and more affordable air transport at the same or higher levels of
safety.
Schedule/Implementation planning 
In December 2014, DANUBE FAB concluded an agreement with EUROCONTROL to provide a Real Time
Simulation to determine the most applicable extension of Free Routes Airspace up to 24/7 operations within
DANUBE FAB airspace. 
Status 
The process is ongoing.
Implementation of Night Free Route operations within national boundaries of ROMANIA and BULGARIA
respectively was completed in November 2013. The gradual implementation process to extend FRA operations at
national and DANUBE FAB level during daytime is ongoing.
As a further step in FRA implementation, Night Free Route Airspace between Bucuresti CTA and Budapest FIR (N-
FRAB) has been implemented starting from the 20th of August 2015. The aircraft operators are no longer bound to
follow the fixed route network, being now able to plan their flights freely between the entry and the exit points of the
airspace of the two countries, based on their needs. N-FRAB is available from 2300 to 0500 UTC during the winter
time period and from 2200 to 0400 UTC during the summer time period.
