ADB SAFEGATE will demonstrate at inter airport Europe 2017 (Munich, 10-13 October) how airports can handle far more air traffic without the need to build costly new infrastructure. By integrating tower, airfield and gate systems, airports can substantially reduce the amount of time aircraft spend on the ground, all while maintaining the highest safety. Time can be saved at every stage of an aircraft’s airport journey, from final approach to landing, while taxiing, during the gate turnaround process, to departure.
ADB SAFEGATE quantified the likely time and cost benefits for airports and airlines. One example shows that thousands of hours of aircraft taxi time can be saved per year at a typical airport, freeing up vital capacity to handle far more flights.
“As airports continue to face ever-growing traffic volumes, their available capacity is coming under intense pressure. At the same time, they must strive to minimize the amount of time aircraft spend on the ground when they are not earning revenue for the airlines. Both challenges can be met by integrating tower, airfield and gate systems,” says Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE. “While full end-to-end integration will achieve the highest operational efficiency, even partially combining some systems will bring substantial gains and lay the foundation for total integration.”
ADB SAFEGATE’s stand (stand 1420, Hall A5) at inter airport Europe 2017 will feature a memorable virtual reality demonstration bringing Airport Performance to life. Visitors will be able to take the view of air traffic controllers and pilots to see for themselves how integrated systems and new technologies, such as follow-the-greens, can simplify airport operations.
Airport efficiency starts by understanding every aspect of the elements that cut congestion, decrease downtime and boost safety. With one of the industry’s most extensive airport operations product and service portfolios, backed by deep operational know-how, ADB SAFEGATE is well positioned to help airports achieve the necessary integration. The company applies an operational and consultative approach that analyzes an airport’s current situation and its future aims. This then leads to a solution that can boost aircraft movements safely and optimize airport efficiency.
