Arrival flow management

This section analyses ANS-related inefficiencies on the arrival flow at the top 30 European airports in terms of arrival ATFM delay and additional ASMA time.
Please note that software release 20.0 of the Network Manager on 04 April 2016 introduced a change to improve the accuracy of the ATFM delay calculation for operational purposes. For more information on the change in methodology click here.

Airport arrival ATFM delay by airport (Q1-2017 vs. Q1-2016)

In the first quarter 2017, average airport arrival ATFM delay at the top 30 airports was slightly below average airport ATFM arrival delay in Q1 in 2016. Whereas capacity related delays decreased notably, there has been a substantial increase in weather-related delays in Q1 2017.

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.
