Madrid airspace adapts to Europe

Air manager enaire carried out Project Ambar at Barajas – officially, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport – and associated airspace, an initiative with which they intend to adapt European regulations, as well as improve safety, sustainability, profitability or management, among others.

This project, remember, is kind of like Restructuring to comply with EU regulations. In addition, a series of improvements are being pursued to obtain greater efficiency, especially in the world of sustainability compared to what it is today: significant savings for airlines in terms of service quality, reduced fuel consumption, and emissions of polluting gases.

Likewise, the Ambar Project includes, without counting more targeted airspace improvements, The development of Barajas Airport, using the latest technology in airspace design, establishing different operating procedures, Enaire indicated, with an independent approach on the existing parallel runways in the northern and southern formations.

It should be remembered that all of these Ambar optimizations “will have no impact on noise footprints or timescales.” Nor in the sound effect in relation to the scenario in the vicinity of the airport. They noted that “no significant impacts were detected either on birdlife, protected areas, conservation of Natura’s red pockets, or any impact on national parks.”

Key benefits and improvements

At Enaire, they also wanted to demonstrate the key benefits and improvements of this initiative. And they assure that they are not few: in terms of operational safety, there will be an increase in the predictability of maneuvers, as well as a decrease in the complexity of air traffic management. “This circumstance will benefit both the flight crew and the personnel responsible for air traffic management,” they emphasized.

On the other hand, from an environmental point of view, the new Ambar architecture will allow aircraft to obtain more efficient flight profiles, improving the distances flown and making them shorter. All this, therefore, will improve air traffic management and flows departing and arriving in Barajas. “The flight time and route will be reduced, as well as a decrease in fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.”

There will also be an economic benefit, as improved quality of service is added to the savings from reduced delays. “These conditions will have a direct impact on reducing costs for airlines by reducing fuel consumption and reducing time,” Enaire qualifies.

Finally, they summarize that Ambar will bring “significant benefits from a safety, operational efficiency, air traffic control and sustainability standpoint, increasing service quality to airlines and referral to the community.”
