In April 2008, Fraport AG and DFS initiated an Airport CDM project at Frankfurt Airport. The Project aimed for developing the A-CDM procedure for Frankfurt based on European standards, the necessary system adaptations and adopting A-CDM into regular operation.
After a highly intensive working phase the Airport CDM process has been successfully and on time put into regular operations at Frankfurt Airport in February 2011. Frankfurt was the fourth airport after Munich, Brussels, Paris CDG, which implemented the A-CDM procedure completely including the data link to the network management unit in Brussels and the six A-CDM concept elements.
Fraport as well as the joint Fraport and DFS project team received awards for successfully implementing Airport-CDM at Frankfurt Airport “A-CDM@FRA”.
