Several years ago, LED technology transformed airfield ground lighting. Its adoption has since been rapid and unstoppable as airports reap the rewards of substantially lower energy costs, ultra-long lamp life, high-quality output and much faster response times compared to the conventional halogen lighting. Build a safer, lower cost airfield. Today, we stand on the threshold of a further transformation as advanced control systems build on the capabilities of LED lighting and other technologies to create the intelligent airfield.
Follow the Greens at Heathrow – pilots love it, many know about it, but how is it really working and how was it developed and implemented? I asked Adam Spink, an active Heathrow Tower controller that I know from my work at EUROCONTROL some years ago, and more recently as my co-participant to the EUROCONTROL A-SMGCS Task Force.

Last year, passenger numbers were the highest on record, breaking the 250 million mark for the first time in the U.K. With the aviation industry growing rapidly, there are new airport stories to be told all the time. At the Airport Matters 2016 – AOA Annual Conference in London, one of the projects highlighted is a film presenting the Integrated Tower Solution Project where Birmingham Airport and ADB SAFEGATE work together to enhance Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM).
MUNICH, GERMANY. With close to 40 million passengers passing through in 2014, Munich Airport is the second busiest gateway in Germany and the 7th busiest airport in Europe. The hub is expecting further growth in spite of capacity constraints in its existing two-runway system. To handle the forecast demand, maximizing throughput within existing infrastructure is essential. Safegate Group, through our subsidiary AviBit, is proud to be a key contributor to Munich Airport’s traffic expansion project.
Today’s Airports contain a complex network of stakeholders. Often these stakeholders have efficient management and communication strategies within their respective departments. However, inefficiencies that hamper productivity and performance can be created when these stakeholders interface with other departments and external organisations. If a holistic approach is to be implemented, a philosophy of One Airport – One Process needs to be adopted.
As result of an airport expansion project, Kuwait International Airport (KWI), plans to boost the airport’s facility’s capacity from current seven million passengers to 13 million in 2016 and in 2025 the capacity is predicted to 25 million passengers. Continue reading
