Airport CDM is about partners (airport operators, aircraft operators/ground handlers, ATC and the Network Operations) working together more efficiently and transparently in the way they work and share data. The Airport CDM project aims to improve the overall efficiency of operations at an airport, with a particular focus on the aircraft turn-round and pre-departure sequencing process. One of the main outputs of the CDM process will be more accurate Target Take Off Times which can be used to improve en route and sector planning of the European ATM Network. This is being achieved through implementation of a full set of Departure Planning Information messages (DPIs) sent to Network Operations. The advantages for the network will start to multiply as more and more airports implement A-CDM.
This forum is dedicated to all the airport partners involved in an Airport CDM project in Europe (airport operators, ANSPs, aircraft operators, ground handlers, etc.).
