In a context of steady growth of air traffic world wide, Air Navigation Service Providers must meet increasing demand and report on the quality of their performance. This research presents the design and evaluation of novel performance metrics: the relevance of ATC set of standard routes, the lateral deviation and difference in length and duration between airlines filed flight plans, actual trajectories and wind optimal routes. The proposed metrics are predicated on the necessity for the metrics to be robust, easy to compute and applicable to several different Air Traffic Management Systems, eg. Europe vs USA.
