EUROCONTROL has worked with a large number of stakeholders, including airlines, airports and air navigation service providers, to produce the European continuous climb (CCO) / continuous descent (CDO) operations Action Plan. This includes practical advice on how to make CCO/CDO work, with examples of best practices and how constraints can be overcome, building on the extensive experience Europe already has on optimising the efficiency of vertical flight profiles. The principles of the Action Plan have already been utilised this summer by DFS, the German ATC provider and by Lufthansa in their development of the ‘Efficient Flight Profile Concept’, bringing tangible benefits for the airline and for the environment.
