Efforts to Improve In-Service Rates
Our airport had an in-service rate of 98.4% for the roughly 700,000 total flights that took place between our opening and July 2012. 0.26% of flights were cancelled due to bad weather. We have worked to maintain a high in-service rate through the proactive implementation of physical solutions, including the introduction of a Category III Instrument landing system on runway three-six to deal with fog, and snowplows to deal with heavy snowfalls.
Innovations and Improvements for Higher On-time Performance and Lower Flight Service Costs
Efforts Regarding Small Aircraft for Domestic Flights
Small aircraft (qualifying aircraft include the CRJ series and propeller airplanes) can enter and exit all domestic apron stands under their own power. This eliminates towing time and improves punctuality. In addition, stands 2 and 9 can be boarded on foot via the apron tarmac.
Furthermore, exclusively for domestic flights, stands 2 to 6, 10 and 11 allow small aircraft to make a short push-back (by taking a shorter route than the average push-back). Also, in stands 201 to 206, aircraft under 47 meters in length and 36 meters in width can perform tail-in/toe-out parking to reduce the time taken to move to and re-park at stands with passenger boarding bridges.
