The new algorithms, visualisations and Web Site implementation rollout is as follows.

DescriptionPlanned dateStatus
Removal of all references to pre-covid 2019 datasets.
Full Assessments referring to 93 days in 2019 will be replaced with 31 Day Assessment for August 2023. This is because aircraft traffic has recovered to pre COVID levels.

All new Full Assessment requests will now analyse August 2023 aircraft movements against the current 31 day period.
