airspace capacity

airspace capacity

The proximity of airports to one another, the relationship of runway alignments, and the nature of operations—IFR or VFR (instrument flight rules or visual flight rules)—are the principal interairport considerations that affect the airspace capacity of a master airport. If major or secondary airports are closely spaced, they will share a parcel of airspace. Hence, there may be some reduction in IFR capacity resulting from the intermixing of traffic within that parcel of available airspace.

This summer sees the Airspace Capacity Management (ACM) team based at the Prestwick Centre for the first time, and they are working closely with the operational supervisors and the airlines to help plan and manage the traffic effectively, so as to minimise delay for passengers.
The objective of the agreement is to develop a roadmap based on global and local best practices to optimally utilise airspace capacity, enhance communications and invest in navigation, surveillance and air traffic management.
In addition to physical capacity enhancements, HIA expects improvements in operational efficiency, including increased automation to allow 50% of passengers to perform self-check-in, increase in airspace capacity, and optimised baggage handling processes.

For the second successive year, Airport Show will feature the ATC Forum as a co-located event, providing a vital platform for global ANSPs, regulators and stakeholders to discuss key issues affecting regional airspace capacity and efficiency.
In an interview with the Emirates News Agency (Wam), Al Suwaidi said the authority is currently re-planning internal routes to extend to neighbouring countries, with the aim of increasing airspace capacity, as well as to introduce a new navigation management system by 2020, confirming the ability of the UAE to meet the expected demands of air navigation in 2020 and beyond, achieve environmental efficiency and generate annual financial savings of over Dh50 million for airline companies.
Donaldo Mendoza said the 7th SCSTFRG meeting was organized by the South-East Asia ATS Coordination Group (SEACG) to review the traffic flow in the overall South China Sea airspace, air routes, and the suitability of the flight level allocation scheme (FLAS) / flight level orientation scheme (FLOS) to optimize airspace capacity and enhance flight safety in the long term; and to report the outcomes of the review and recommendations to the SEACG.
To regulate such a large flow, European organizations recommend starting development of a harmonized plan of actions to increase airspace capacity, introduce modern technologies of air traffic control automation, and ensure the required number of air traffic controllers.
Today, the airline industry is experiencing a period of exceptional growth, but the forecast doubling of air traffic by 2035 will require a more efficient use of assets to reduce fuel and CO2 emissions, and increase airspace capacity while assuring safety.
Route blockages and airspace capacity impacts are predicted up to eight hours in advance, permitting strategic traffic management planning on a large scale.
The forecasted safety and airspace capacity benefits, together with the savings in fuel and carbon emissions, are being hailed as the greatest revolution in air traffic management since the introduction of radar 70 years ago.
"We have successfully redesigned the current airspace, introducing 90 new procedures and 150 new way-points in efforts to enhance airspace capacity, enable fuel savings and continuously support green aviation under the 'Airspace Restructuring Project' in Dubai," stated Abdullah Al Hashmi, executive vice-president for operations at Dans, in his keynote address at the Air Traffic Control Forum, running alongside the Airport Show in Dubai.
