Air New Zealand cuts waiting time

by Danie Vermeulen

Air New Zealand has reported that their integrated flow management and arrival management system will significantly reduce airborne delays.

This new system will help eliminate air traffic bottlenecks and holding patterns at Auckland airport.

Some results are mentioned:

In Auckland, airborne delay has reduced from an average of 3.5 minutes per flight in 2007 before CFM was introduced, to an average of 23 seconds per flight in 2013 – an 89% reduction.

Airlines arriving into Auckland Airport are experiencing an additional 2-4% reduction in delays as a direct result of the AMAN deployment into the CFM system.

This will increase as the system is fine-tuned over the coming months.Any reduction in the waste of waiting is obviously good news to me and all other loyal Air New Zealand frequent flyers.
