International changes to the format of flight plans are due to come into force from 15 November.

The changes will reflect advances in the onboard communications and navigational equipment, and aim to assist air traffic management measures for commercial traffic.

They come as part of the Flight Plan 2012 project and will be introduced by ICAO and Eurocontrol.

AFPEx, the NATS hosted flight plan submission tool, will be updated with a new user interface reflecting the new format plans. This will be deployed at 0001 on 15 October to allow a transition period, although the new flight plan rules will only be ‘switched on’ in line with the Eurocontrol timeline.
