MALMOE, SWEDEN. Global institutes are expecting a very large passenger growth for both airports and airlines, and many believe that the volume will double over the next fifteen years. This growth is a challenge, especially in Europe, where many airports have already reached or stretched their capacity constraints with increasing air traffic, which means more start-up and landing times in the daily lives of airports, airlines and their many involved actors. Is there a contradiction between airports and airlines in terms of investment at the airport from both the commercial (Landside) and operational (Airside) perspectives?
A Giant is rising at Daxing. The new airport in Beijing is planned for completion in May 2019 and will start trial operations late that year, according to China Daily. Olivier Berger, CEO of ADP INGENIERIE, subsidiary of the GROUPE ADP, discussed key challenges and design consideration of this giant project with Martin Lamprecht of Momberger Airport Information.
Did you know that international passenger traffic in Latin America grew at a higher rate than the world’s average last year? When Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) in São Paulo hosted an ICAO A-CDM Implementation Workshop and Seminar, ADB SAFEGATE’s A-CDM expert, Stephen O’Flynn was there to present on the subject key to deal with growth, performance matters and potential capacity constraints.
In an increasingly globalized world, international interconnectivity is key and a given for any thriving or expanding society. A well operating airport hub with supporting connecting commuter airports is essential to support the economy of a large metro or a large part of a country. With leisure and business air travel on the rise, airports are facing multiple congestion challenges that need to be managed both in the short and long term. In many cases, airport operators are running out of options resulting in overloaded infrastructure.
On the occasion of the 2016 ACI-NA/World Annual Conference/World Annual General Assembly in Montreal and the organization’s 25th anniversary, Martin Lamprecht, Publisher & Managing Editor and also our guest blogger from Momberger Airport Information interviews Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World about Customer Service, Sustainability, Safety, Regulation and Cooperation.
UK. Leeds Bradford Airport, which serves 3.5 million passengers per year, has upgraded its Air Traffic Control systems to support its ambitious draft Masterplan proposals to deliver 7.1 million passengers annually by 2030. The Airport boosts air traffic capacity with advanced Air Traffic Control technology from ADB Safegate.
With China’s aviation industry growing rapidly, the potential impact on the environment is also increasing. While the boom brings challenges such as congestion, delays and pollution, it also comes with an opportunity for China to take advantage of the most innovative technologies available, rather than simply trying to expand existing infrastructure.
Anticipating an increase in air traffic, Singapore’s Changi Airport, which currently operates with two runways, plans to add a third runway as part of the Changi East Development Project. The airport will install new airfield specialized systems including airfield lighting, surveillance and detection equipment for the third runway and ADB Safegate has been chosen to supply Changi Airport with the latest LED airfield lighting equipment for this purpose.
What does ADB Safegate offer its customers? It’s a simple question, but bringing together two market-leading portfolios and sets of expertise is no simple task. Much work has gone into developing a coherent description of ADB Safegate’s total capabilities. We interview Jesper Svensson, who leads the Airport Performance Team, to find out his thoughts about how ADB Safegate can help airports to understand how they can get more out of their existing infrastructure.
AIRPORT PERFORMANCE – VIDEO. In years to come, more and more people will chose air travel. Air traffic expansion and capacity crunch are the biggest challenges at many airports, threatening to jepordize efficiency and take a big bite of profitability. At ADB Safegate we use technology and our know-how to minimize these problems. We optimize airfield and gate infrastructure to enhanche the safety of aircraft guidance in all weather conditions at any time of the day. But why does it matter? This video reminds us.
