ARC is the independent partner for airports and authorities to determine the airport’s declared capacity using state-of-the-art simulation technologies.
Every slot-coordinated airport has to provide the so-called ‘declared capacity’ for the next winter or summer season, before the slot allocation process with airlines can start. ARC’s consulting services include a comprehensive analysis of historical and planned flight schedules to identify representative busy days for the capacity assessment, e.g. in terms of fleet mix or operational conditions.
Additional aircraft movements are systematically added to the selected peaks and the resulting delays are analyzed with ARC’s airport simulation suite CAST.
