The recommendations made are as follows:
The strategic plan - approved by Brisbane Airport Corporation - follows an assessment of the current performance by NATS, which runs air traffic control at 16 British airports including Heathrow and Gatwick.
Key measures include:
• Setting standard terminal arrival speeds to reduce the average time between landing from 156 seconds to "a world's best practice" 120 seconds;
• Building two new high-speed runway exits to get landing aircraft out of the way;
• Building dual entry points to runways to create flexibility;
• Reducing line-up times and pilot reaction times to speed up take-offs;
• Improving use of the small cross-runway;
• Changes to the air traffic control structure to create an "approach director" role;
• Closer liaison with the Royal Australian Air Force base at Amberley;
• Daily performance reports and reviews.
