ATC15.2 — Arrival Management extended to en-route Airspace

Arrival Management extended to en-route Airspace extends the AMAN horizon from the 100-120 nautical miles to at least 180-200 nautical miles from the arrival airport. Traffic sequencing may be conducted in the en-route and early descent phases.
Air traffic control (ATC) services in the TMAs implementing AMAN operations shall coordinate with Air Traffic Services (ATS) units responsible for adjacent en-route sectors.
The existing techniques to manage the AMAN constraints, in particular Time to Lose or Gain and Speed Advice may be used to implement this functionality.

Input data to AMAN need to be provided by the most accurate trajectory prediction information available (including EFD, CPR, etc.).

It should be noted that "AMAN upgrade to include Extended Horizon function" includes the following aspects:
- A sector receiving arrival messages must display information for the controller in order to facilitate that instructions are given to aircraft.
- A sector operating a "Basic AMAN" should be able to generate arrival messages to adjacent sectors providing instructions to aircraft outside its own sector.
- ATM systems must be upgraded in order to be able to generate, communicate, receive and display AMA messages (ref. SLoA ATC15-ASP02) or other extended AMAN data exchanges via B2B services.
- Bilateral agreements must be established between the sectors involved that can be in different ATC units and also in different countries, including the Network Manager for the notification purposes.
- Integration of departing traffic from airfields within the extended horizon destined to arrive at the AMAN airfield.
- NM system upgrades for extended AMAN.
- Development of the working procedures including coordination with NM.

FOR MILITARY AUTHORITIES: It is the responsibility of each Military Authority to review this ESSIP Objective IN ITS ENTIRETY and address each of the SloAs that the Military Authority considers RELEVANT for itself. This has to be done on top and above of the review of "MIL" SloAs which identify actions EXCLUSIVE to MIL Authorities.

Expected Performance Benefits

Safety
Maintained.
Capacity
Optimal use of TMA capacity.
Operational efficiency
Improved arrival flow.
Cost efficiency
-
Environment
Delays are resorbed by reducing speed in early phases of arrivals leading to reduction of holding and vectoring which has a positive environmental impact in terms of fuel savings.
