Enhanced air traffic flow management (ATFM) slot swapping

Release: 
4
Status: 
Available for deployment

The SESAR solution enhances slot swapping functionalities by making it possible to swap pre-allocated slots with allocated slots or carry out multiple swaps for a single flight. These functionalities allow airlines to swap between long-haul and short-haul flights, or split the delay assigned to one flight between a maximum of three flights.

This SESAR automated solution considers the traffic needs, and groups or ungroups airspace sectors to match capacity with evolving demand.

The SESAR solution enhances slot swapping functionalities by making it possible to swap pre-allocated slots with allocated slots or carry out multiple swaps for a single flight.

The user-driven prioritisation process allows airlines to change the priority order of unregulated flights among themselves and in collaboration with the airport authorities.

Advanced STAMs include a set of automated support tools at the network level which detect hotspots and disseminate the information to flow management positions in the area control centres.

The solution aims at complementing departure regulations, such as the calculated take-off time (CTOT), with the dissemination of locally-generated target times, over the hotspot.

SESAR is replacing today’s non-integrated tools with advanced software that can assess traffic demand and complexity based on continuously updated information from multiple sources.

This solution offers greater flexibility by allowing dynamic airspace management in all phases of ATM operations, from initial planning through to the execution phase, taking into account local traffic characteristics.

The SESAR Solution extends the collaborative NOP information structure to enable more data exchanges between the Network Manager and other partners in order to deliver greater operational efficiency.
