BALANCING ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE CAPACITY AROUND AIRPORTS

This solution was formerly PJ.01-02 W1

Airports are important nodes in the ATM network. Providing more consistent delivery of arriving and departing traffic helps to optimise capacity at airports, especially where multiple airports are involved. This candidate solution will develop concepts for digital synchronisation of arrivals and departures in very high/high density/complexity environments.

The traffic in the terminal manoeuvring area (TMA) and nearby sectors is managed in near real-time, taking advantage of predicted demand information provided by local arrival and departure management systems to identify over-demand or additional capacity.

Sector load can be balanced by controlling sector entry times or waypoint times using instructions such as speed advisories, or ground delay. The candidate solution focuses pn procedures and systems related to enhanced arrivals for nearby airports in the TMA. The aim is to manage and optimise arrival and departure flows in order to improve the efficiency of inbound and outbound flows and to increase the capacity of the surrounding airspace.

The candidate solution enables departure flows to be managed in an integrated manner resulting in a more consistent and manageable delivery into the en-route phase of flight while ensuring an optimal usage of runway capacity.
