EL TIEMPO consulted with Aerocivil and explained that some situations arose this Friday morning. Although they say operations are now picking up, some of it may be left behind.

This newspaper confirmed that flight delays and possible cancellations are due to Aerocivil’s Ground Delay Programme, a strategy it has been implementing since 2021. It is used when the airport’s space capacity is exceeded.

According to the IATA information portal, the Ground Delay Program is an air traffic flow management measure (ATFM) in which aircraft remain grounded, implemented by Aerocivil’s air traffic units in order to manage capacity and demand in a given volume of airspace or at a particular airport. In other words, while traffic is rearranged, departure is also rescheduled.
