Frequentis discuss bridging the air traffic capacity gap
Frequentis reveals how deploying an integrated controller working position solution can help air traffic controllers to work more efficiently and effectively.
Thanks to increased passenger demand, air traffic volume has risen steadily since 2008. EUROCONTROL has predicted a capacity gap of 1.5 million flights in Europe by 2040 if things continue as they currently are.
Forecasted growth is increasing pressure on air navigation service providers (ANSPs) to raise capacity while meeting performance, safety and regulatory requirements, while most likely within current financial constraints. With many airports already operating close to full capacity, it’s clear that the issue will not be solved by increasing infrastructure, rather, it is about working smarter. Capacity concerns can no longer be solved by adding more runways or increasing the number of controllers, ANSPs need to rethink their current workflows to allow more planes to safely fly. So, how can technology support this growth?
