Vineeta Upadhyay, Joint GM (ATM-ATFM) at Airports Authority of India said, "We regulate the traffic for Delhi, Mumbai and other airports which require our services by giving them a calculate take-off time which is a ground delay
programme, but in cases on exigencies and contingencies when the airport has a total gridlock because of weather or maybe a planned closer also then what we do is, we put a ground stop programme that no aircraft is cleared for a constraint airport till we give them a go ahead that they can take off".
The simulation study showed that the proposed solution reduced the total delay time, unnecessary ground delay
, and unnecessary ground delay
The significance of the destination airports could be related to Ground Delay
Program (GDP) instituted by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA; see http://www.fly.faa.gov/Products/AIS_ORIGINAL/shortmessage .html).
(86.) To prevent a backlog of flights from clogging tarmacs, airports institute the Ground Delay
If planes are backed up during a storm, the FAA sends a ground delay
alert, says Rebecca Trexler, a representative for the agency.
The airport delay information shows the current status of all FAA-issued airport delays (ground delay
, ground stop, airport closure, arrival delays, and departure delays).
A similar filter also should be used to smooth the measured transmission response data prior to the ground delay
A ground delay
only inconveniences passengers, but in-flight delays can be deadly.
In the 12 airports included in the National Airspace System (NAS) Plan released by the FAA in 2008 and 2009, the end time of the weather-related ground delay
program was averagely 95 minutes earlier than that of the initially planned ground delay
program, which was nearly 2 hours earlier than the end time of the revised ground delay
program [4, 5].
A CDR offers a standardized departure when the only alternatives are to accept a ground delay
or refile a new route to avoid the adversely affected airspace.
government on Wednesday imposed its first fine on an international carrier for keeping passengers aboard a plane during an extended ground delay
, slapping a $150,000 penalty on Pakistan International Airlines.
