Airport Information and Data

The focal point for collecting and delivering airport information

This activity aims to optimise the efficiency of information and data exchanges between airports and EUROCONTROL, thanks to a centralised common process, which was voluntarily adopted by 40 European airports.

It provides EUROCONTROL the airport information necessary to perform the Network Management functions, in particular the European Network Capacity Planning process, the management of special events impacting capacity, and the monitoring and reporting on the ATM network performance.

It also aims to avoid duplicating requests to airports and delivers a single information repository to all actors involved via a web-based tool, the Airport Corner.

Contribution to network performance

Currently 68 European airports voluntarily participate in this process, including the 40 most “network constraining” airports.
