Copenhagen airport is soon to join more than 20 airports in Europe that are A-CDM compliant.
As part of its qualification process the airport has implemented Amadeus Airport Sequence Manager and A-CDM Portal systems, which provide airlines, ground handlers and air traffic controllers with accurate and synchronised information on aircraft departures.
By qualifying to become A-CDM compliant and be certified by Eurocontrol, the airport will be able to work collaboratively with key l players on the same platform to improve the efficiency of the flight turnaround process.
For example, if other A-CDM airports in Europe experience a major disruption, using this technology Copenhagen Airport will be simultaneously informed so that it can react accordingly.
Christian Poulsen, CIO and VP for Assets & Technology at Copenhagen Airports, said: “This will help airlines spend less time near the gate and on the runway so they can minimise delays, keep travellers happy, and save fuel thus reducing their impact on the environment.
“We chose Amadeus as a strategic partner to provide the IT foundation to support our “Expanding CPH” plan on how to grow from 25 to 40 million passengers per year. We are well on the way with that expansion plan.”
“Sharp focus on efficiency and on our customers Total Cost of Operations is one of the cornerstones in our strategy. That is widely acknowledged, as Copenhagen has been awarded “Europe’s most efficient airport” 11 times in the past 13 years by Air Transport Research Society (ATRS).”
