Airport integration

Enhancing airport performance to improve network predictability.


Airports are complex operational ecosystems and a crucial component of the European air traffic management network. At EUROCONTROL, we work to better integrate them with the air traffic management network. We help airports take advantage of the 'network approach' to resolve operational problems.

At the same time, we support airports in implementing performance improvements outlined in the European ATM Master Plan, focusing on operational specifications, standards and cooperative action plans.

Our services help to increase capacity, reducing delays, improve surface flows and implement a total airport management approach in daily airport operations and in adverse conditions.

We believe that collaboration among stakeholders is just as important as the enabling technologies and concepts we develop. This is why we work closely with airport teams from across Europe to support them in implementing operational improvements that will deliver capacity, safety and efficiency both at local and network levels, now and in the future.
