En Route Service Units Forecasts
EUROCONTROL/NMD/STATFOR is the Statistics and Forecast Service of the EUROCONTROL Agency that provides to EUROCONTROL members and stakeholders:
- Statistics to allow measurement and understanding of what is happening in the air traffic industry.
- Quantitative forecasts to plan a response for future air traffic needs.
Amongst its main forecast products, STATFOR regularly provides en route Service Units forecasts to all ATM stakeholders to assist Member States in the establishment of their en route Unit Rates.
STATFOR currently publishes a tri-annual short-term Service Units forecast (see schedule below) for each individual charging area in those Member States which participate in the Multilateral Agreement. The methodology is primarily based on time-series analysis (or statistical forecasting).
