NEW
Airport Capacity Enhancement: from A-CDM to Performance-Based Airport Management (PBAM)

Over the years, capacity related shortcomings in en-route airspace have been addressed at large and upcoming new procedures and separation methods will further enhance the capacity available. These developments have, inevitably, focused attention on the capacity shortfalls faced by aircraft operators at many airports worldwide.

Concepts like Collaborative Decision Making (CDM), surface traffic management etc. have gone a long way towards creating additional capacity at the airports most needing such enhancement. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that the new procedures and tools are reaching the end of their potential for increasing capacity while traffic demand continues to increase. Without effective new ways of approaching airport capacity enhancement, major delays will be difficult to avoid and the ability to create new capacity or to help release latent capacity still available in the airport system might be limited.

A-CDM2.0 is a holistic, future-proof, technology agnostic methodology that expands traditional A-CDM to cover both airside and landside in a uniform way. It can be implemented globally but the underlying approach is adaptable with minor modifications at each new location, representing a major cost saving.

This 4-day course is designed to enable participants to address their current and upcoming challenges in an innovative and strategic way. Stepping out of the traditional silos and adopting a new, holistic thinking, smart investments in future-proof solutions become possible and the capacity enhancement potential of existing and new procedures and tools can be fully unlocked in a cost-effective way.

The course is built on demonstrating how the new thinking can be applied to challenges directly, not only in a generic sense but also specifically for the course participants’ circumstances.

As part of the interactivity in the course, participants are encouraged to list issues and questions applicable to their specific environment.
