In a two-part article series, ADB SAFEGATE’s global ATM advisor, Stephen O’Flynn, explains Follow the Greens. In this second article, Stephen discusses why airports need to develop a roadmap for Follow the Greens (FTG).
Last year, passenger numbers were the highest on record, breaking the 250 million mark for the first time in the U.K. With the aviation industry growing rapidly, there are new airport stories to be told all the time. At the Airport Matters 2016 – AOA Annual Conference in London, one of the projects highlighted is a film presenting the Integrated Tower Solution Project where Birmingham Airport and ADB SAFEGATE work together to enhance Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM).
Did you know that international passenger traffic in Latin America grew at a higher rate than the world’s average last year? When Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) in São Paulo hosted an ICAO A-CDM Implementation Workshop and Seminar, ADB SAFEGATE’s A-CDM expert, Stephen O’Flynn was there to present on the subject key to deal with growth, performance matters and potential capacity constraints.
Birmingham Airport has chosen ADB SAFEGATE, to install its Integrated Tower Solution to enable A-CDM and improve real-time information shared between airport stakeholders ─ airlines, ground handlers and air traffic control. Greater predictability is only one of the expected outcomes.
ADB SAFEGATE will introduce a brand new integrated management solution at the French airports Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and ORLY (ORY). As a component of the A-CDM process, new apron management systems and docking systems will be implemented at both airports with a potential of up to 450 units, maintained and supported to enhance airport throughput, tackle congestion, optimize airport transit process efficiency and strengthen the Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) process and the predictability for the Network Manager at these airports.
Do you think the turnaround process could be faster, while still maintaining the highest level of safety? Can your airport handle more aircraft? Ask ADB Safegate Group and the answer will be yes. Modern apron management solutions and advanced visual docking guidance system are both vital to speed up turnaround efficiency and decrease the risk of delay – a gain for airport stakeholders as well as for the passengers.
Nearly 20 airports in Europe have embraced A-CDM to boost efficiency and collaboration with airlines and other stakeholders. This two-part series provides insight on A-CDM’s evolution and reports on the positive impact it is having at large and small airports. Part 1 introduces A-CDM and discusses its rise in Europe. Part 2 covers several of the key outcomes that airports have reported.
ADB SAFEGATE was the Platinum sponsor of the Australian Airport Association’s Operations forum, OPS SWAP, in Brisbane which attracted 150 key operational stakeholders from Australia and New Zealand. The OPS SWAP is a forum about innovation and the optimization of airfield operations and this year ADB SAFEGATE displayed how our solutions contributes to Follow the Greens and A-CDM.
DUBAI. There is almost never just a single reason behind a delay or cancellation of a flight. A flight from A to B includes input from many stakeholders, including passenger handling, ground handling, air traffic control and flow management, to mention just a few. With a deeper look into the plethora of processes involved in taking an aircraft from airport A to B, you might consider it a small miracle when a flight is on time.
As result of an airport expansion project, Kuwait International Airport (KWI), plans to boost the airport’s facility’s capacity from current seven million passengers to 13 million in 2016 and in 2025 the capacity is predicted to 25 million passengers. Continue reading
