Analysing airport performance from all possible angles allows identifying the network impact and vice versa. The results of such analysis are reported back to the operational stakeholders proposing and collaboratively identifying actions to improve the situation.
Airport Capacity and Performance (ACAP) aims to better integrate airport operations into the air traffic management (ATM) network. It focuses on:
To deliver the needed predictability and performance there is a requirement to consider the network aspects in the management of available airport capacity accurately. This means timely information on what is happening during all phases (strategic, pre-tactical and tactical), combined with an ability to perform post-operations analysis, identify shortfalls and apply agreed mitigations or improvements.
Data from the Network Manager systems (e.g. flight plans, flow measures) is used and combined with information provided by stakeholders, such as airline operators, airport operators, airport slot coordinators and air navigation service providers. This information bundle enables to perform post-operational analysis in order to identify short-comings that can be improved in a cooperative and collaborative way.
The service is restricted to specific stakeholder groups.
