Actual Time of Arrival [ATA]

Updated: 2017-11-29.

The ATA, or actual time of arrival, is the time a given form of transportation arrives at its intended destination.

As opposed to the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), the ATA is the time that the flight or other mode of transportation is scheduled to land/dock/arrive and be at the gate, which may be later due to all the standard delays, or earlier thanks to fair winds or less traffic.
