Eurocontrol has again confirmed that reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) airspace will be implemented in Europe starting January 24. The 1,000-ft separation standards will apply between FL 290 and FL 410, and non-RVSM-compliant aircraft will not be permitted at these altitudes. It is expected that RVSM altitudes in the North Atlantic Track system will be expanded upward from FL 390 to FL 410 and downward from FL 310 to FL 290 after European RVSM is implemented.
