Airport C ollaborative Decision Making (A - CDM) is based on information sharing. A better use of resources can be attained w hen the different stakeholders at airport operations share their more accurate and updated information . One of the main difficulties when dealing with this information sharing concept is the number of stakeholders involved and their different interest and behaviour : aircraft operators , gro und handling companies, airport authority, air traffic control and the Central Flow Management Unit . It is paramount to quantify the benefit of an airport collaborative decision making strategy in order to involve all these different organisations. Simulat ions are required to analyse the overall system and its emerging behaviour . This paper presents the development and initial t est ing of a n agent - based framework , which allows this behavioural analysis to be done . The simulator explicitly represents the diff erent stakeholders involved in the A - CDM and the interactions between them during the 16 milestones defined by EUROCONTROL o n its A - CDM implementation manual . T his framework allows independent gradual development of local behaviours and optimisation, and a gradual increase on complexity and fidelity on the simulations
