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.
Do you think the turnaround process could be faster, while still maintaining the highest level of safety? Can your airport handle more aircraft? Ask ADB Safegate Group and the answer will be yes. Modern apron management solutions and advanced visual docking guidance system are both vital to speed up turnaround efficiency and decrease the risk of delay – a gain for airport stakeholders as well as for the passengers.
Lahore International Airport is now weather proofed. During an intense but short project that lasted only 12 months, the airport’s nominal capacity has been upgraded to handle 29 aircraft movements per hour, regardless of weather. ADB SAFEGATE worked closely together with the airport and Pakistan’s Civil Aviation authorities to increase airport performance and upgrade capacity to beat the challenging foggy winter climate. With a complete integrated system in operation, from the runway up to the tower, Lahore is now reaping benefits of increased capacity and is also able to accommodate diversions from neighboring airports.
Is your airport operating at the full capacity in all weather conditions? Do you believe it is as safe as possible with regard to runway operations, and foreign object debris (FOD) detection around gates? Would you like to find out how to increase safety, capacity and throughput in all weather conditions, but don’t know where to start? A CONOPS (Concept of Operations) can provide you with these answers. Continue reading
In June this year Safegate Group and Lahore Allama Iqbal International Airport signed a contract to work together towards weather proofing the airport in only 12 months. The objective is being able to land aircraft in low visibility before the winter, and by May 2016 to handle 25 movements per hour. A project as complex as this can easily take 5 years to implement. To to do it in only 12 months’ time is unheard of. Until now! We spoke with Jesper Svensson, General Manager SafePerformance for Safegate Group about how this is possible.
