In a first in Northeast region, the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport in Guwahati has implemented Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) system.
The A-CDM platform is a common information sharing platform for processing timely and accurate information for quick and precise decision making.
LGBI airport is the 8th Airport in India where Airports Authority of India (AAI) has executed such task in the country.
Before Guwahati it is functional at Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Trivandrum.
The A-CDM services at LGBI Airport in Guwahati was inaugurated on Sunday by Sanjeev Jindal, regional executive director, AAI-NER in presence of Ramesh Kumar, airport director, Guwahati Airport, AAI said in a statement .
A-CDM solution takes into consideration aircraft’s expected time of arrivals, target off block times of departures, runway-in-use along with runway handling capacity and accordingly determines the aircraft arrival and departure sequence.
The primary focus of the A-CDM is on reducing aircraft holding delays at the runway holding point, the AAI statement said.
“This results in substantial saving of aviation fuel and reduction in carbon emissions,” added AAI.
This is achieved by improving the decision-making process by sharing relevant information among aviation stakeholders, it said.
The improved version of the A-CDM platform was installed and commissioned at Chennai and Kolkata airports last year, the AAI said.
