ETOPS was originally the acronym in English for Extended-range Twin-engine Operation Performance Standards (the rules governing the operational performance of twin-engine aircraft on long flights), but over time the term has evolved and come to mean Extended Twins OperationS (extended operation of twin-engine aircraft).
In essence ETOPS refers to a series of certifications approved by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) that enables commercial aircraft that are propelled by two engines to cover long-haul routes, taking into account a specific flight time with respect to the nearest airport. The time that is set for the ETOPS certification of a flight corresponds to the time required to get to the nearest appropriate airport with a single engine running.
