Using smart flow management and sequencing, our arrivals management systems provides sophisticated airborne queue management that maximises airport capacity and reduces the workload of controllers.
Our automatic tactical sequencing gives airlines the tools they need to enjoy better on time performance, reduced fuel burn, fewer CO2 emissions – and savings in the millions of dollars.
Good for people, great for the planet
Collaborative Flow Manager (CFM) enables airlines to work collaboratively together – and with us – to schedule departures and arrivals to avoid airport congestion. This tool also gives airports greater certainty around their traffic timings, so they can most effectively allocate resources.
CFM allows airlines to move aircraft around to best suit the needs of their fleet and their customers, resulting in better on-time performance. Fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions are also lowered thanks to reduced holding patterns in the air and minimised engine idling on the ground.
CFM has changed the entire domestic passenger operating environment in New Zealand. An earlier version of CFM, called Collaborative Arrivals Manager, received two IT Industry Awards and an international achievement award, recognising it as an innovative, leading edge use of technology.
Reducing congestion at Auckland Airport
A world leading integrated flow and arrival management system is now in place at Auckland Airport. CFM has been integrated with Exelis’ OSYRIS Arrival Manager tool to reduce air traffic bottlenecks and holding patterns at one of Australasia’s busiest international airports.
