Implementing Partners

Stansted Airport
Leader: Stansted Airport


London Stansted Airport (STN) is keen to take advantage of the proven benefits of Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) as demonstrated by other Single European Sky (SES) Pilot Common Project (PCP) airports, and wishes to integrate the airport into the EU wide Air Traffic Management (ATM) modernisation programme represented by SESAR R&D and Deployment programmes. This will ensure that the airport will be suitably equipped to meet its full role as one of the top 25 airports in the European ATM network as well as addressing the mandatory nature of PCP Deployment under EU regulation No 716/2014.

London Stansted Airport's envisaged growth is significant for the London Terminal Maneuvering Area (LTMA) and therefore to the whole European ATM environment. A-CDM capability and subsequent deployment of mature SESAR initiatives will position London Stansted as an important European network airport. The implementation of A-CDM at Stansted Airport would reduce delays and possibility of missed connections, wold result in improved reliability and predictability of flights meaning improved customer satisfaction, more accurate arrival times and planning, improved use of resources.

London Stansted has already deployed Electronic Flight Processing (EFPS) and Advanced Surface Movement Guidance & Control System (A-SMGCS), two of the 3 PCP requirements enabling fast track system for PCP compliance. London Stansted has an Advanced Tower; EFPS calculated TTOT (Target Take Off Time) upon receipt of AOBT (Actual Off Block Time) and send appropriate DPI (Departure Planning Information) messages.
