The effort began in May last year with the formation of a collaborative decision-making workgroup. The initiative, called the Airspace Flow Program, is meant to replace multiple ground delay programs in support of Swap (the severe weather avoidance program). An advanced session on the subject was on the agenda at the Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference in January. For more information, contact NBAA’s Jo Damato at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NBAA, along with the FAA and industry representatives, is looking at a way to reduce delays in the flow of air traffic during the severe weather seasons
