SIMMOD study of Athinai TMA and the new international airport (Spata)
The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) plans to inaugurate a new international airport in Athens to replace the existing facility. The scheme, which will, of necessity, involve major revisions to the existing ATHINAI TMA is due for completion on March 1, 2001. In October, 1997, HCAA requested that the EUROCONTROL Experimental Centre (EEC) at BrÃ©tigny-sur-Orge, France, conduct a fast-time simulation using SIMMOD to evaluate certain aspects of proposed operations at the new airport, and within the associated Athinai TMA. This report focuses upon the airport and ATHINA TMA elements of the study.
