Regional Focus: CANSO/ACI Asia-Pacific ATFM/A-CDM integration

There is much to be gained from Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) and Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) implementation, including improved flight predictability, enhanced safety, capacity and efficiency, and the environmental and cost benefits of reduced flight delays and fuel use.

However, it is also timely to consider the harmonisation and integration of ATFM and A-CDM to optimise the entire flight process from gate to gate.

Integration between ATFM and A-CDM maximises their benefits. And as the aviation industry recovers and air traffic returns, both will be key to a smooth restart of ATM operations in the air and on the ground.

As part of our industry’s effort to support the promotion and implementation of ATFM and A-CDM in the Asia Pacific Region, CANSO and ACI Asia-Pacific held a virtual workshop to discuss the benefits of ATFM and A-CDM integration.

The workshop aimed to familiarise ANSPs and airports in the region with the ICAO APAC implementation framework for A-CDM and cross-border ATFM, and to promote the concept and benefits of ATFM/A-CDM integration. It also shared experiences, best practices and implementation challenges from airport and ANSP perspectives.
