Integrating Airport Operations is the name of an aviation project reflecting the joint effort made by 14 partners in 8 EU countries to modernize Air Traffic Management (ATM). The aim of this initiative is to synchronise and optimize the process for all aviation stakeholders involved when taking operational decisions at airport level. The main objective of the Integrating Airport Operations project is to close the gap on Initial Airport Operations Plan (iAOP) in the 12 airports and 2 Air Navigation Service Providers involved.

The implementation of the Initial AOP contributes to a more efficient operation at the participating airports, brings benefits in terms of synchronisation, reduced fragmentation and enhanced cross-border connections and thus improves capacity.
