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 (Jan-Sep 2017 vs. Jan-Sep 2016)
Average airport arrival ATFM delay at the top 30 airports between January and September 2017 was just below the level in 2016. In the first nine months of 2017 there was a notable increase in weather related airport arrival ATFM delay which offset the decrease in capacity related ATFM delay.
Amsterdam and London Gatwick airport showed the highest increase in airport arrival ATFM delay and the two Istanbul airports and Paris Orly showed the most notable reduction of average airport arrival ATFM delays in the first nine months of 2017.
