PRESS RELEASE. Leveraging innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions from ADB SAFEGATE, SHIA-operated airports can more accurately predict Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) to improve apron operations and passenger services. 75% of flights now land within 30 minutes of their scheduled landing time benfiting pre-allocation of stands and reducing the need to make stand changes by 25%.
A recent trial at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport proves digitization of ramp operations can enhance operations and improve turnaround time of aircraft. The Intelligent Apron trial was conducted by the AAAE Airport Consortium on Consumer Trust (ACT) together with stakeholders from ADB SAFEGATE, Synaptic Aviation, DFW and American Airlines. Read about the proof of concept in a special Airside Report from Airport Business Magazine. Continue reading
