Air France has teamed with PASSUR Aerospace Inc. to develop PASSUR Integrated Traffic Management in Europe, PASSUR Aerospace said. This makes Air France the launch customer for PASSUR Aerospace’s Global Air Traffic Initiatives, the company said.

The traffic management solution is designed to increase flight predictability and minimize delays and disruptions by addressing costly and complex air traffic constraints, according to the predictive analytics company. According to PASSUR Aerospace, the solution can:

  • Predict how the airspace will operate, including every aircraft trajectory and constraint
  • Alert to future constraints and disruptions
  • Advise how to eliminate, avoid, or minimize the constraints and disruptions
  • Enable proactive steps to address complex air traffic management conditions

Initial deployment is set to be at Air France’s Operations Control Center. The focus would be on optimizing operations at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Paris Orly (ORY), Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS), London Heathrow (LHR) and Istanbul Ataturk (IST) airports, according to PASSUR Aerospace.

The system includes modules for diversion management, airport capacity management, flight trajectory prediction, surface optimization, and collaborative airport information and field condition reporting, according to the company.
