The European ATM Master Plan Level 3 (MPL3) implementation report provides a holistic view of the progress made by ECAC States in implementing commonly agreed actions in the context of the implementation of SESAR programme.

The structure of 2021 Master Plan Level 3 Report (reference year 2020) consists of:

Executive Summary that highlights the most important findings of the report;

Synoptic View, the view that provides an overview of implementation progress in 2020, per Essential Operational Change (EOC), and gives an outlook of future developments. This view also includes a set of aggregated elements related to the progress of implementation of the SESAR Solutions having been validated by SESAR 1 as well as by SESAR2020 Wave1;

Deployment View, the view that provides a detailed analysis of the implementation progress per Level 3 implementation objective, providing also an expected evolution as well as a list of relevant references showing the multiple interdependencies affecting each individual objective. The information is supplemented with a histogram showing the distribution of implementation progress across the States/Airports which have not yet finalised the deployment;

Annexes that provide support documents for easier reading and understanding of the report, mostly mappings between Master Plan elements. It also provides an insight into the standardisation and regulatory needs associated to the SESAR Solutions.

The main information sources for the production of this document remain the LSSIP State reports, which have been developed based on the provisions of the Master Plan Level 3 2020 Implementation Plan, including the associated implementation dates. The above mentioned State reports reflect the implementation statuses and plans as available on 31 December 2020. This reference year corresponds to the harshest crisis the European and world aviation has ever seen. However, notwithstanding the catastrophic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on aviation, the implementation progress of the Master Plan Level 3 was steady and even unexpected, with advances in implementation recorded all across the ECAC area. For 32 Implementation Objectives (excluding the “local” ones) at least one State/Airport has reported completion in 2020, with substantial progress recorded in particular for the infrastructure related implementation objectives.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the progress achieved in 2020 shows the resilience of the European ATM and gives confidence that the European ATM system will certainly build back better and will be ready to deliver when the increase in air traffic will require.
