This week saw the European Airport Collaborative Decision-Making (A-CDM) family grow to 30 airports. Since the end of September, four airports have now fully integrated with the EUROCONTROL Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC) as A-CDM airports – Nice (30 Sep), Warsaw (29 Oct), Berlin Brandenburg (31 Oct) and Bergamo (01 Dec).

This is good news for the network, enabling the NMOC to receive more accurate take-off time information on almost 38.5% of NM area departures via Departure Planning Information messages. A-CDM contributes to making airport operations more efficient, resilient and sustainable by optimising the use of resources and predictability of air traffic.

We are delighted to see that Nice, Warsaw, Berlin Brandenburg and Bergamo, despite the difficult circumstances due to the COVID19 pandemic, have been able to implement the European Airport Collaborative Decision-Making Concept. Once the pandemic is contained and air traffic returns to past volumes in the years to come, it will be crucial to have an air traffic management system in place that adapts quickly to varying traffic demand in the safest, most sustainable and efficient manner. For this to become a reality, we rely on all our operational partners, building on such examples of excellent cooperation.”

A-CDM is embedded in the EUROCONTROL NM’s ATM operational concept as an important enabler that improves operational efficiency, predictability and punctuality to the ATM network and airport stakeholders.
