How to Improve Airport Operations
Airport operations encompass a wide range of activities and processes across every area of the operational environment. This includes all terminal processes, such as check-in, bag drop and security, and also activities within the ground handling, aircraft handling, baggage handling, car parking, retail areas, communications, maintenance and many more.
With so many layers of airport operations, each with its own set of challenges and compliance requirements, management teams need an increasingly comprehensive view across the entire operational environment to improve efficiency, resource management, visibility and productivity, while ensuring security and compliance.
With flight traffic on the increase across the world and the associated challenges growing alongside, airport operations need to be scalable and flexible enough to cope with rising numbers while remaining seamlessly secure and robust.
How integration can facilitate efficiency
The most modern, streamlined airports are turning to automation to simplify historically time-consuming airport processes. Technologies such as self-service kiosks are enabling greater control for the passenger and enhancing the experience, while simultaneously reducing the need for dedicated check-in counters and lengthy queues. It is integration with the baggage handling system, handling database, airline DCS and other systems that enables these technologies and paves the way for further cost and resource savings.
When the airport operations systems are working in tandem, sharing data and information securely, a comprehensive environment can be created from which to effectively manage airport operations. This also allows operators to strengthen reporting processes and recognise trends within the airport traffic flow. This can facilitate better resource management and minimise potential delays with a more proactive response.
