About Airport CDM
Airport Collaborative Decision Making is a European concept for Airport Efficiency, based on information sharing and collaboration between major airport stakeholders (i.e. CDM partners) such as Aircraft Operators, Ground Handlers, Airport Operator, Air Traffic Control, and Air Traffic Flow Management. A majority of European airports are today implementing the standardized concept and provide accurate flight planning information to the Central Flow Management Unit (CFMU), while in return enjoying more flexible slot assignment with economical and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
