A certain number of completed projects are highlighted as it was already possible to provide detailed information on specific benefits brought by these projects. In time, SESAR Deployment Manager will provide such detailed information for every completed project.

Description

Daily operations at large European airports requires continuous coordination between all local stakeholders: not only the airport operators and the local ANSPs, but also several airlines, ground handlers, emergency services, MET providers, etc. The Airport Operations Plan is the single common rolling plan to bring together and coordinate all local stakeholders to improve airport processes and the overall passenger experience.

With 6 runways, 223 aircraft stands, up to 500.000 aircraft movements and 70 million passengers per year, Amsterdam Schiphol is surely an airport where the coordinated management of all airport resources plays a vital role. With the joint establishment of the Airport Operations Center and the Airport Operations Plan, all local stakeholders will use the same platform to plan and monitor operations, to jointly take decisions and to enhance the airport performance as a whole.

The AOP implementation will make operations at Schiphol more predictable and resilient to disruptions: this will allow to maintain capacity even in unfavorable weather conditions, and to reduce queuing and ground congestion in the airport. More efficient operations mean less delays, less fuel burnt by aircraft and a reduced environmental footprint for the airport: it is estimated that a fully-functioning initial AOP in Schiphol will enable savings for around 1.2 million of minutes saved for passengers up to 2030.
