Gatwick implements Amadeus’ cloud-based A-CDM

Gatwick Airport has become the first airport to implement Amadeus’ cloud-based Airport-Collaborative Decision Making Portal (A-CDM).

Gatwick joins other airports such as Munich, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Madrid and Zurich to adopt the A-CDM standard, however Gatwick has chosen to use cloud technology to speed up the implementation time – rolling out the Amadeus portal to 300 users in just 8 weeks.

A-CDM will enable Gatwick to handle 55 flights per hour and accommodate up to two million additional passengers.

The aim of the A-CDM standard is to bring the entire airport ecosystem (airport operators, airlines, ground handlers and air traffic management) together to operate more efficiently and transparently, sharing accurate information in a timely manner. This results in better air traffic management with fewer delays and increased capacity.

The Amadeus A-CDM Portal provides aggregated views of the status of airport operational activities based on real-time flight, passenger and other operational data. It can predict future flight problems over a three-to-four hour period, identifying which flights might be delayed and how they can be turned around faster to make sure they leave Gatwick on time, even if they arrived late. With accurate data at their disposal, airport stakeholders can make cooperative decisions to rapidly deal with operational issues.
