Continious Development

Harmonised Annual KPI Report 2018 

The 2018 edition of the Annual KPI Report is ready! This document is published within the first half of every year and contains important performance indicators that are comparable across all German A-CDM airports. It aids in recognising local as well as national trends and developments.

The Report for the year 2018 is available in English and German and can now be downloaded. 

Dusseldorf: ACDM Awareness Campaign 

July 2018:

Awareness Campaign to reduce delay at Düsseldorf Airport

At the beginning of the summer period 2018 Düsseldorf Airport published an awareness campaign to improve punctuality, i.e. by better adhering to the A-CDM procedures.

Flyers, posters and stickers are addressed to the following target groups: Flight Crews, Ramp Handling and Pushback Service Providers.

Each of these stakeholders has to stick to the procedures to make sure that the existing capacity at the airport and in the airspace can be used optimally. In times of high demand no shows at the runway due to missing TOBT and TSAT as well as late TOBT updates result in unused resources which then means additional delay for the entire system.

In Düsseldorf this is really sensitive due to the local RWY usage permit. The A-CDM motto “Best planned – best served” is more important than ever. At DUS Airport a continuous check and realistic TOBT setting is desirable during the turnaround process. Flight Crew, Ramp Agent and Gate Staff should be in contact with each other so that potential delays might be advised to the TOBT responsible person as early as possible.

The campaign is published in German to the greatest extent, but flyers, posters and stickers for Flight Crews are also distributed in English.

Take-off and landing


Automatic EOBT Update Service 

June 2018:

Any change of more than 15 minutes to the EOBT of a filed flight plan has to be communicated to EUROCONTROL.

At selected Airport-CDM airports, EUROCONTROL is offering airline OCCs automatic EOBT updates of flights whose local TOBT is more than 15 minutes later than the current EOBT. Regardless of this new function, manual EOBT updates are still possible.

Are you interested in finding out more or organising a trial? Have a look at EUROCONTROL’s leaflet or contact our colleagues in Brussels via e-mail.
