In a context of steady growth of Air Traffic world wide, Air Navigation Service must meet growing demand and report on the quality of their performance. This paper presents the design and evaluation of novel performance metrics aimed at evaluating Air Traffic Management Systems. After providing a general overview of the existing performance metrics, the following new performance metrics are introduced: The number of occurrences the flight plan falls outside the set of preferred routes, the difference in length and duration between an airline flight plan and wind optimal routes. The evaluation is 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.
