Airport Operations Center (APOC)

The new jointly operated Airport Operations Centre (APOC) has the potential for airports and all participants to respond much better to disruptions of future flight operations.

The Institute of Flight Guidance is working on the development and application of future processes and technologies for the integrated airborne and ground-based guidance of aircraft. This means using airspace more flexibly and efficiently and enabling airports to optimise throughput, while minimising fuel consumption and environmental impact. To this end, the Institute examines all technical and operational processes on board aircraft and on the ground (air navigation services and airports). Special attention is paid to the changing role of the human operator.
