What is the Estimated Time of Departure (ETD)?

The Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) is the estimated time at which a vehicle or aircraft is expected to depart from a particular location.  


The Estimated Time of Departure (ETD) is usually calculated based on the anticipated time of departure for the route, taking into account factors such as the time of day, traffic, weather, and aircraft performance. The ETD can also be affected by delays or changes in plans, so it is important to stay up to date with the latest information prior to departure.
