Copenhagen embraces Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM)

Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport has become the latest gateway to install new Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) technology, its solutions being provided by Amadeus.

The move will provide the airport, its airline customers, ground handlers and air traffic controllers with accurate and synched information on aircraft departures.

Christian Poulsen, CIO and vice president for assets and technology at Copenhagen Airports, says: “This will help airlines spend less time near the gate and on the runway so they can minimise delays, keep travellers happy, and save fuel thus reducing their impact on the environment.

“In short we all benefit – it’s a win-win.”

The successful implementation of Amadeus’ Airport Sequence Manager and A-CDM Portal solutions ensures that the gateway will soon join more than 20 airports in Europe that are A-CDM compliant.

“As more and more airport players adopt these common processes and technology, the more travellers and all actors in the travel chain will benefit,” notes the airport.

Poulsen adds: “We chose Amadeus as a strategic partner to provide the IT foundation to support our Expanding CPH plan on how to grow from 25 to 40 million passengers per year. We are well on the way with that expansion plan.”

John Jarrell, head of airport IT at Amadeus, comments: “We are committed to supporting Copenhagen Airport’s vision to improve the airport’s operational performance and customer experience.

“We have seen great results working together, and for them to become an A-CDM compliant airport is a great milestone in our journey together.

“As its operations continue to grow and as the airport industry evolves, we look forward to continuing to work with such an innovative and forward-thinking player.”

Copenhagen Airport and Amadeus announced a 10-year landmark deal in March 2016 to adopt a wide range of Amadeus solutions.

Amadeus Airport Sequence Manager and A-CDM Portal solutions are two of the nine solutions to be implemented as part of this agreement.
