Improving TOBT predictability using actual ready time

Many major European airports have been improving their operational efficiency by implementing Airport CDM information sharing. Some, however, have opted out of a few of the recommended milestones in order to shortcut the implementation process. Not implementing actual event milestones means the airport misses out...

Fooling ourselves with digital transformation?

The term digital transformation gets tossed around a lot in the aviation industry these days. Digital is apparently the new normal. And the term is often applied to ‘plug-and-play’ tools from IT providers as a sales ploy, regardless of whether it is true. The idea...

A balanced approach to the passenger journey

Improving passenger experience is a hot topic in the aviation industry. Too often, though, it results in the optimisation of a singular efficiency aspect. That approach is simply too narrow to improve overall passenger satisfaction. A balanced approach between efficiency and experience that considers the...

Using design cues for better passenger flow at airport terminals

The increasing number of passenger movements in global aviation continues to strain many airports’ terminal capacity for processing passenger flows efficiently. Additional self-service capabilities can help. However, unlike programmable machines, passengers are unpredictable. Self-service solutions can only work with the support of environmental cues that...

Implementing A-CDM: More than just technology

Airport CDM (A-CDM) can improve the overall efficiency of airport operations, but if the scope of the implementation is too narrow and focused only on technology, its benefits can fall flat. To get the much-needed support from everyone involved in the process, it is crucial...
