Capacity and flow management is a key element of air navigation services provision. EUROCONTROL has developed NEST software to support this function. For more than 20 years, Ineco has been carrying out studies on this field including sectors configuration design, traffic flows optimisation and operational scenarios analysis for best ATCO assignment to shifts.
