Airport arrival ATFM delay by airport - 2018 (Jan-Jun) vs. 2017 (Jan-Jun)

Average airport ATFM delays at the top 30 European airports decreased from 1.12 to 1.06 minutes per arrival in the first two quarters of 2018. The most notable improvement in Q1-2 2018 was observed for Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport (SAW) where ATFM arrival delay reduced by 5.3 minutes on average.

Overall, the average additional ASMA time decreased in the first six months of 2018.

Departure flow management

This section analyses ANS-related inefficiencies on the departure flow at the top 30 European airports in terms of ATC pre-departure delays at the gate and additional taxi-out time.

The data analysed in this section is based on data directly provided by airport operators. Unlike CODA data, the Airport Operator Data Flow covers all departures from airports and is therefore also used for the analysis of additional taxi out and ASMA times. As highlighted in PRR, while the data flow has a better coverage, some data quality issues do exist.
Top 30 airports

The average additional taxi-out time increased at the top 30 airports in the first six months of 2018 from 3.7 minutes to 3.91 minutes per departure (excluding the two Istanbul airports for which no data was available).
