Developing a Weather Impact Index for O. R. Tambo International Airport, South Africa

Developing a Weather Impact Index for O. R. Tambo International Airport, South Africa AbstractWeather-related delays in the aviation sector will always occur; however, through effective delay management, the impact and duration of delays can be reduced. Part of delay management is thoroughly assessing adverse weather risks. A weather impact index was specifically designed for O. R. Tambo International Airport, in Kempton Park, South Africa, the busiest airport in Africa, in order to identify the level of risk forecasted adverse weather will have on departure delays. The index is based on a study of all departure delays due to adverse weather over the aerodrome for the period 2010–13. The index is marked for use on 30-h terminal aerodrome forecasts (TAFs) as a planning tool. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Weather and Forecasting American Meteorological Society

Abstract

AbstractWeather-related delays in the aviation sector will always occur; however, through effective delay management, the impact and duration of delays can be reduced. Part of delay management is thoroughly assessing adverse weather risks. A weather impact index was specifically designed for O. R. Tambo International Airport, in Kempton Park, South Africa, the busiest airport in Africa, in order to identify the level of risk forecasted adverse weather will have on departure delays. The index is based on a study of all departure delays due to adverse weather over the aerodrome for the period 2010–13. The index is marked for use on 30-h terminal aerodrome forecasts (TAFs) as a planning tool.
