Building an arrival sequence in medium- and high-density environments calls on controller resources from an early phase in the approach procedure. The process is predominantly ground-based and can result in late vectoring and unnecessary holding rather than fuel-efficient strategies based on en-route speed management for efficient delay absorption. By combining time management capabilities on board aircraft with ground-based system support, the arrival management process can be more predictable and deliver more efficient operations.
