A-CDM – it’s one of many abbreviations peppering the aviation world. Yet, it’s far more than just another acronym, it’s one of the most important developments today affecting airports, promising safer, more efficient and more profitable operations. Caroline Schmeits, Chief Project Officer, Independent Business Group IBG, describes why A-CDM has the power to transform airport operational efficiency and how to deploy it successfully.

A-CDM. According to some reports, the amount of data collected by operators is increasing like a supernova; up to 90% of data ever created has been collected and stored in just the last two years. But are airports making the most of this valuable asset? Continue reading
ACI LONDON. Our guest blogger from Momberger Airport Information spoke with Angela Gittens, Director General of ACI World and Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE about the latest challenges and opportunities for airports around the world at the ACI 10th Annual Airport Economics & Finance Conference & Exhibition, London, United Kingdom. Watch the video now.
When looking to boost operational efficiency and safety through automation, the GTAA needed a gate solution with more advanced functionality and integration capabilities to support collaborative decision making on the apron. After a competitive review of the latest technologies, the GTAA once again turned to ADB SAFEGATE to deploy its latest Safedock T1 advanced visual docking guidance system (A-VDGS) and SafeControl Apron Management (SAM) integration solution. Continue reading
ADB SAFEGATE has entered in to a global partnership with Gentrack, a leader in Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM), to focus jointly on the efficacy of future airport community collaboration. Combined systems will provide strategical and tactical decision making and operational support that can lead to important efficiency gains for both the airport and airlines. The two companies will put up a joint showcase at the upcoming inter airport Europe 2017. Continue reading
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?
The air transport industry is based on the premise that it can take people and goods safely, reliably and efficiently almost anywhere in the world. But as demand continues to grow exponentially, operational inefficiencies and ﬂight disruptions have become one of the core challenges airlines and airports face on a daily basis. Disruptions alone cost airlines around US$ 25 billion in 2016. Continue reading
Nearly 20 airports in Europe have embraced A-CDM to boost efficiency and collaboration with airlines and other stakeholders. This two-part series provides insight on A-CDM’s evolution and reports on the positive impact it is having at large and small airports. This first part introduces A-CDM and discusses its rise in Europe. Part 2 covers several of the key outcomes that airports have reported.
When integrated with airport systems and gate equipment, advanced visual docking guidance systems can deliver more predictable aircraft turnaround times, higher operational efficiency and safer gate areas than is possible with conventional docking guidance technology. Investing in higher operational efficiency will create more capacity within an airport’s existing infrastructure. Continue reading
While there is always a risk that shared information will be misused by a recipient, the experience has been that the benefits of sharing security information within closed communities far outweigh the risks. Strength comes from working together – smartly and securely – utilising the digital engagement technology that exists today. Continue reading
