Follow instructions of Ground Controller

Pilot to contact tower and request start up at TSAT ±5 minutes. If at TSAT +5 minutes ATC have not received a call for start up the aircraft may lose its position in the sequence

Calculated Local Benefits

Description
Less ATFM-delay, realistic ATFM-slots, less/no flight plan suspensions, improved on-time performance, better situational awareness and less workload.

TMA / Approach
Separation and spacing procedures and practices   eATM

Separation Minima

Minimum radar separation required for two succeeding aircraft on the same approach:

3 NM

3 NM

Minimum radar separation required for two succeeding aircraft on parallel approaches (if applicable):

3 NM

3 NM

Do you apply local adaptations to the separation minima proposed by ICAO?

 
Yes

B752 and B753 are HEAVY when followed by other aircraft, otherwise MEDIUM
4 NM minimum between SUPER/HEAVY followed by SUPER because of ROT

Application of separation minima

 
Until first aircraft passes runway threshold

Is there a difference between applying wake turbulence separation minima and radar separation minima at your airport?

 
No

Control and application of separation during approach

Where is the handover of aircraft from APP to TWR?

Roughly when ILS established

At transfer of communication

APP remains responsible for separation until aircraft passes runway threshold

 
See AIP EHAM AD2.22

CDO Continuous Descent Operations eATM

Does your airport have CDO arrival procedures published in the AIP?Yes

Night transitions 06, 18C and 18R 23:00-06:00 hours local time, where possible extented to 22:30-06:30 hours local time (depending on traffic demand)
Transition ARTIP to 36R 6:00-22:00 UTC, depending on traffic demand

FL70

The CDO arrival routes contains minimum altitudes at certain points. So these can be considered as 'at or above' constraints.

Yes

Does ATC use specific RT phraseology to facilitate CDO?Yes

Transition, descent according to profile, etc.

Do you measure the CDO achievement rate and/or the benefits of CDO at your airport?

 
Yes

Achievement rate partially, related to legal reporting requirements. Benefits not specifically.

Does ATC enable CDO on a tactical basis by means of radar vectoring?Yes

Does ATC use specific RT phraseology to enable CDO on a tactical basis?No information provided by the airport

Part of arrivals

No specific times for tactical CDOs, only for planned CDOs (see first question).

No specific altitude.

Do you measure the CDO achievement rate and/or the benefits of CDO at your airport?

 
Yes

Achievement rate partially, related to legal reporting requirements. Benefits not specifically.

Are you measuring CDO achievement for both noise and fuel CDOs in accordance with the measurement criteria concluded by the European CCO / CDO Taskforce? (video - European CCO/CDO Taskforce) No

Methodology according to legal reporting requirements.

CCO Continuous Climb Operations eATM

Does your airport have CCO departure procedure published in the AIP?No

Do you intend to publish CCO departures procedures for your airport?Yes

Planned 2025-2030

Does ATC enable CCO on a tactical basis by means of radar vectoring?Yes

Does ATC use specific RT phraseology to enable CCO on a tactical basis?No

H24

FL250

Do you measure the CCO achievement rate and/or the benefits of CCO at your airport?No

Are you measuring CCO achievement for both noise and fuel CCOs in accordance with the measurement criteria concluded by the European CCO / CDO Taskforce? (video - European CCO/CDO Taskforce) No

No measurements.

Are there situations when PBN Final Approach procedures can/could be the only instrument approach procedures available for landing? Yes

In case ILS is unavailable.

Do/Would you consider the publication of PBN operations as an opportunity to rationalise or withdraw conventional navaids (e.g. ILS, VOR, NDB, etc.)? Yes

All NDBs and 50% of VORs are being decommissioned.
