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-Jun 2017 vs. Jan-Jun 2016)
In the first half of 2017, average airport arrival ATFM delay at the top 30 airports was 0.18 min below average airport ATFM arrival delay in 2016. The improvement is mainly due to a reduction in capacity related airport arrival ATFM delays. Weather related delays in the first half of 2017 remained at a similar level as in 2016.
Similar to the trends observed for traffic growth at those airports, Amsterdam and Lisbon airport showed the highest increase and the two Istanbul airports showed the most notable reduction of average airport arrival ATFM delays in the first half of 2017.
