Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM)

Professional Certificate Course
Delivery: Classroom
Duration: 5 days

Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) analyses the importance of the relationships between airport operators, airlines, ground handlers and air traffic controllers working together to improve decision making, thereby reducing delays and enhancing efficiency. The focus of A-CDM is for all airport partners to share information, so that each organization has a more complete operational picture, enabling the effective and timely resolution of issues. The course demonstrates how A-CDM can achieve improvements in flow control and optimise capacity of runways, terminals, gates and airspace.
