AeroCloud Systems (AeroCloud), the modular intelligent airport management platform provider, has been awarded a contract by Manchester Airport Group (MAG) to provide its Remote Stand Plan and Airfield Works modules to Manchester Airport (MAN).
AeroCloud creates modular and scalable intelligent airport management software built on leading-edge technology. Its cloud-based platform uses predictive artificial intelligence and machine learning. Together with common-use passenger processing and self-service solutions, it delivers an innovative answer to the complex operational challenges experienced by airports across the globe.
Manchester Airport will use AeroCloud’s Remote Stand Plan (RSP) to efficiently manage their aprons, the area of an airport where aircraft are parked, unloaded or loaded, refuelled, boarded or maintained. The Airfield Works (AW) module manages on-site development and construction work.
Manchester Airport’s Airfield Liason Manager, Gary Cookson, commented:
“The Remote Stand Plan module is a fabulous piece of kit that works independently from our stand allocation system and helps the team to plan and manage capacity on the remote apron stands.
The module is very user friendly, and the ‘easy on the eye display’ gives a real-time overview of both immediate and future capacity availability.”
AeroCloud’s CEO George Richardson said:
“AeroCloud is delighted to be working with Manchester Airport. Our software is quick to deploy and accessible through any device, making it an ideal solution to support improvements to aspects of the airport’s operations. Airports deserve better, and AeroCloud provides the technological infrastructure to achieve this.”
AeroCloud offers airports a cost-effective and revolutionary approach to improving and developing their operational management systems requiring little or no capital outlay. Its scalable, intelligent airport management platform, passenger processing and self-service solutions support the growth of airports. The beauty of AeroCloud’s agile, modular cloud-based software is the speed at which it can be implemented, meaning that AeroCloud can offer a rapid turnaround on the provision of new systems as required. Based in Macclesfield in North West England, this fast-growing technology company is rapidly driving change in how airport operations are managed.
