A-CDM

The A-CDM implementation is a GTAA-led initiative, in close collaboration with Air Canada and Westjet (our two principal carriers), the ground handling agents, NAV CANADA, and other airport partners. It is about sharing the right information at the right time with the right people.

A-CDM allows for better common situational awareness through information sharing between key partners at the airport. Improved situational awareness allows the airline, its service providers and the airport to operate proactively. More accurate and regular flight status updates help airport partners anticipate arriving aircraft, prepare them for the next flight and achieve on-time departure, with optimum productivity of resources. 

A-CDM Trials

The planned A-CDM trials have been suspended at this time. Further updates will be posted when new trials dates are available.
