S-AF1.1 — AMAN extended to En-Route Airspace

Arrival Management extended to en-route Airspace extends the AMAN horizon from the 100-120 nautical miles to 180-200 nautical miles from the arrival airport. Traffic sequencing may be conducted in the en-route and early descent phases.
Air traffic control (ATC) services in the TMAs implementing AMAN operations shall coordinate with Air Traffic Services (ATS) units responsible for adjacent en-route sectors.
The existing techniques to manage the AMAN constraints, in particular Time to Lose or Gain and Speed Advice may be used to implement this functionality.

Deployment Target Date


System Requirements

- AMAN systems shall provide arrival sequence time information into en-route ATC systems up to 180-200 nautical miles from the arrival airport
- ATC systems of upstream air traffic service (ATS) units shall manage AMAN constraints. Data exchange, data processing and information display at the relevant controller working positions in the ATS units shall support the management of arrival constrains; Data exchange between ATS units may be achieved with existing technology pending the implementation of System-Wide Information Management (SWIM) services
