The FAA is redesigning airspace and addressing airspace inefficiencies, introducing new Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures and making use of Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) to make the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metroplex airspace more efficient and improving access to its airports. The effort focuses on a number of airports, including Anoka County-Blaine Airport (Janes Field) (ANE), Flying Cloud (FCM), Minneapolis-St. Paul International/Wold-Chamberlain (MSP), and St. Paul Downtown Holman Field (STP).

All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.
