What is the minimum vertical and horizontal distance allowed between aircraft operating in European airspace?

(This linked question is the US-specific equivalent of what I am asking about European regulations for ease of reference)

  • $\begingroup$ I don't understand: you ask something about european regulation precising this is US specific. $\endgroup$ – Manu H Feb 28 '18 at 16:07

    $\begingroup$ @ManuH he’s linking to a question that answers for the US in an attempt make it clear that this question isn’t a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – terriblememory Feb 28 '18 at 17:34

    $\begingroup$ It's kind of a duplicate (but not really). The base separation minima are set internationally by ICAO Doc 4444, and countries generally conform. My understanding is any deviations are on a country-by-country basis, I don't think there's any EASA/Eurocontrol-wide deviation from ICAO. $\endgroup$ – user71659 Mar 1 '18 at 5:32

    $\begingroup$ Separation minima are pretty universal. There are only minor differences in Europe compared to the US rules you mention. Keep in mind every European country has its own rules, so there is no European standard as such. $\endgroup$ – J. Hougaard Mar 7 '18 at 7:44
