IBG capacity department offers solutions to enhance safety & increase the throughput within terminal areas & airports by implementing the best practices & improving procedures.
IBG´s main line of work in the scope of Capacity includes the following:
Capacity Assessment and Planning
- Conduct assessments of airports, air traffic control systems, and airspace to evaluate their current capacity limitations.
- Develop capacity forecasts and long-term planning strategies to accommodate future growth in air travel demand.
- Identify bottlenecks and constraints in airport infrastructure and air traffic management systems.
Airport Capacity Enhancement
- Work with airports to optimize terminal and runway capacity by redesigning layouts, improving passenger flow, and implementing advanced technology solutions.
- Assist in the planning and development of new airport facilities or expansion projects to increase capacity.
- Analyze and recommend strategies for managing peak passenger flows and aircraft movements.
Air Traffic Management (ATM) Optimization
- Collaborate with air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and aviation authorities to improve the efficiency of air traffic control operations.
- Implement advanced air traffic management tools and procedures to increase airspace capacity.
- Provide support for the implementation of performance-based navigation (PBN) procedures to optimize routing and reduce congestion.
- Analyze and optimize flight routes to reduce congestion in busy airspace regions.
- Develop strategies for more efficient air traffic flow management, including dynamic airspace management.
- Promote collaborative decision-making among airlines, airports, and ANSPs to optimize route planning and reduce delays.
Capacity Utilization Modeling
- Use advanced modeling and simulation tools to predict and optimize airport and airspace capacity.
- Conduct scenario analyses to determine the impact of various operational changes and capacity enhancements.
- Provide data-driven insights to support capacity planning decisions.
Regulatory Compliance and Safety
- Ensure that capacity enhancements and operational changes comply with aviation regulations and safety standards.
- Conduct safety assessments and risk analyses related to capacity expansion projects.
- Assist clients in obtaining necessary approvals and permits for capacity-related initiatives.
- Facilitate collaboration among airlines, airports, ANSPs, and government agencies to address capacity challenges collectively.
- Participate in industry working groups and initiatives focused on capacity optimization and airspace management.
- Advise on the integration of advanced technologies such as automation, artificial intelligence, and data analytics to improve capacity management and operational efficiency.
