PRESS RELEASE. ADB SAFEGATE and Assaia have successfully delivered pilot projects featuring a first-of-its-kind concept at a number of pioneer airports around the world. The concept combines ADB SAFEGATE’s Safedock A-VDGS built-in cameras with Assaia’s ApronAI image recognition capabilities to record turnaround events in real-time. The solution offers airports unprecedented transparency and resilience in apron operations.
As part of a special report on information technology, Airport World, the official magazine of the Airports Council International (ACI), published an article written by ADB SAFEGATE’s Thorben Burghardt on closing the data gaps to automate airport operations. The article looks at how data has become the new integration layer for applications of multiple vendors.
VIDEO. Last week ADB SAFEGATE co-hosted a live webinar with Atech that addressed the operational challenges for all stakeholders on airside navigation, airside operations and A-CDM for airports, airlines and air navigation service providers (ANSPs). At ADB SAFEGATE we were quite happy with the numbers of engaged attendees and to meet the requests we are now sharing the video recording.
In last couple of decades, air travel has become quite accessible thanks to the advent of low cost carriers (LCCs) and the millennial population’s affinity to travel for global experiences. While the spike in passenger footfalls have helped airlines, airports and other stakeholders achieve economies of scale, it has also forced the aviation stakeholders to expand their airport capacity. Now with COVID-19 travel restrictions, capacity is not a primary concern for airports. The bigger challenge now is to improve operational efficiency and improve predictability.
What makes the European airport market very special? To get a better understanding we asked ADB SAFEGATE´s Regional Sales Director Europe, Regardt Willer. In this interview Regardt explains about the biggest challenges and also about solutions to help mitigate the effects. Because of geographical constraints, European airports do not always have the freedom of expanding by means of geographical expansion. Instead airports often need to optimize operations. ADB SAFEGATE’s contribution is predominantly based around providing the airport with the tools to aid decision-making and other tools to speed up the processes at the airport.
Collaboration and global standards are the keys to unlocking greater efficiency in air traffic management. The dynamic nature of aviation should be embraced, according to Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE. As he puts it: “There has probably never been a more exciting time to be in air traffic management”. Continue reading
Did you know that all airlines operating international flights are mandated to monitor their fuel consumption emissions and report them to their national authorities from January 2019 already? This is accordingly to the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). A result of many years of work at ICAO and the support of the aviation industry. Aviation was the world´s first sector to set ambitious global CO2 emission reduction targets.
VIDEO. At inter airport Europe 2017 ADB SAFEGATE launched a data analysis solution that provides airport managers with new insight into how well operations are running. The system reveals operational performance related to the airfield, tower and gate, such as aircraft docking times and on-time turnaround performance for departure. Operators can now more easily see and fully understand what is happening, how they can improve efficiency and what solutions can be implemented to increase airport and airline performance.

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
Did you know that the Middle East aviation sector is expected to grow at 5% annually and will see an additional 258 million passengers by 2035? ADB SAFEGATE´s integrated airport solutions and services can help airports to keep pace with growth without facing capacity and performance issues. Continue reading
