Group ADP & Air France successfully complete SESAR deployment Implementation Project "Enablers for Airport Surface Movement related to Safety Nets (AIR)"


Congratulations to Groupe ADP (Aéroports de Paris S.A.) and Air France for the implementation of airborne safety enablers in the A320 and A330 Family, and the definition of business and operational needs of airborne enablers for surface movements. This has been achieved thanks to the completion of the project 2016_150_AF2_AIR.

The completion of this SESAR deployment Implementation Project brings benefits to European aviation, delivering PCP elements in Fraport AG under SDP Family 2.5.2 “Aircraft and vehicle systems contributing to Airport Safety Nets”, coordinated by SESAR Deployment Manager and co-financed by the European Commission and INEA.

The improvements on capacity and operational efficiency are expected to save 26 Million € until 2030. SESAR Deployment Manager performs the Cost-Benefit Analysis of Completed Projects after one year in operation, in order to evaluate their contribution to the network performance and the benefits delivered against the original expectations. The same process will apply to this Implementation Project in 2021, hoping to confirm this expected positive impact.
