Naviair: Risk of traffic delays due to new air traffic management system
On the night between Friday 28 December and Saturday 29 December, Naviairs new air traffic management system, and the new control tower at Copenhagen Airport, was taken into operational use. The cut-over from the old to the new system took place at 01:00 o’clock Friday night – and everything went according to the plan.
In the running-in period, there will for safety reasons be a risk of air traffic delays of up to an hour – mainly in peak hours. The risk for delays will de-crease as the Air Traffic Controllers gain experience with the new system.
Naviair co-operates continuously with the airline companies as to minimize the effects of air traffic delays.
