GIVING AIRSPACE USERS A SAY IN ARRIVALS PLANNING

This Solution was formerly part of PJ.07-02-W1

When traffic is congested, airlines have little opportunity to propose alternative solutions to reduce the impact on their operations. SESAR 1 research initiated the user-driven prioritisation process (UDPP), which gives more flexibility to airspace users to reschedule their flights to keep their business-driven schedule priorities on track when facing capacity constraints and delays. For example, they can reorder flights in the congested airspace or airports.

This candidate solution extends airspace user capabilities, through the UDPP, to enable them to recommend a priority order request to the Network Manager, with other ATM stakeholders and appropriate airport authorities, for flights affected by arrival constraints. It goes beyond the enhanced slot-swapping and departure flexibility introduced in SESAR 1 to provide a full set of prioritisation options and methods adapted to the different situations and types of airspace users.

SESAR is developing and validating the collaborative framework that will enable the integration and coordination of 4D constraints from various stakeholders including airports, air navigation service providers, airspace users and the Network Manager. This will ensure the continued stability and performance of the network and while giving airspace users the opportunity to prioritise their most important flights, hence reducing the impact of ATM planning constraints on the costs of their operations.
