Newsletter August – six reasons to evolve to the intelligent airfield

Company ADB SAFEGATE
Date 22.08.2017

We are gradually leaving the summer behind us and preparing for an exciting autumn. Not only are we looking forward to a great number of new product introductions, we are also preparing for the upcoming inter airport 2017 event.

This event is, without a doubt, still the largest airport event in the world and we will be showcasing our “Time to Integrate” strategy. How can airports and airlines alike cut down on turnaround time, optimize capacity and radically improve on overall efficiency in full respect of safety conditions? We will focus on answering those questions at the upcoming inter airport and our other key events around the globe.

Read more about the event and also key pieces of our integration story, the intelligent airfield, airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) and much more.

Enjoy reading and I look forward to welcoming you soon to one of our key events! Or, write me personally at marketing@adbsafegate.com

Kind regards,
Christian Onselaere
CEO ADB SAFEGATE

Transforming airport operations: six reasons to evolve to the intelligent airfield
Transforming airport operations: six reasons to evolve to the intelligent airfield
INTEGRATION. Today, we stand on the threshold of further transformation as advanced control systems build on the capabilities of LED lighting and other technologies to create the intelligent airfield. The intelligent airfield is more than just switching lights on and off. It is about controlling lighting units individually, monitoring them automatically and maintaining them without disrupting airport operations. And it is about greatly improving airfield safety by providing Air Traffic Control with better situational awareness and control.
Air Traffic Expansion is biggest challenge facing airports
Air Traffic Expansion is the biggest challenge facing airports
AIRPORT TRAFFIC EXPANSION. Uninformed commentators cite security as the biggest challenge for airports in coming decades. But peak industry bodies such as IATA and ACI differ. They identify dramatic increase in passenger numbers as the airport industry’s single biggest challenge. IATA has flagged passenger traffic increase of up to 100% over current levels by 2035; that could mean an extra 3.7 billion passengers who will need accommodating by airports around the world.
Airport Industry – tackling disruption at the source
Airport Industry – tackling disruption at the source
The air transport industry is based on the premise that it can take people and goods safely, reliably and efficiently almost anywhere in the world. But as demand continues to grow exponentially, operational inefficiencies and flight disruptions have become one of the core challenges airlines and airports face on a daily basis. Disruptions alone cost airlines around US$ 25 billion in 2016.

The essential guide to improving airport efficiency (Part 2)
A-CDM. Nearly 20 airports in Europe have embraced A-CDM to boost efficiency and collaboration with airlines and other stakeholders. This two-part series provides insight on A-CDM’s evolution and reports on the positive impact it is having at large and small airports. The previously published first part introduces A-CDM and discusses its rise in Europe. This second part 2 covers several of the key outcomes that airports have reported.

AIRPORTS AROUND THE WORLD. The growth of the African continent sees no limits. In 2014, more than 50 million tourists travelled to Africa, making it one of the world’s most popular regions. With a strong airport industry, this number is expected to increase further in 2017 and beyond. ADB SAFEGATE has been active in Africa for more than 50 years and during that time it has taken part in various airport traffic expansion projects. One of the airports that is preparing to meet increasing traffic is Ghana’s Tamale Airport.

EVENT. Last time, at the 20th anniversary edition of inter airport Europe in 2015, not less than 12,705 trade visitors from 110 countries came to Munich. Now it´s time again! Join us and the rest of the airport community at the world´s leading airport exhibition. We hope to see you all in Munich, 10 to 13 October, to discuss airport performance.
What do you think is the biggest challenge airports face in order to handle anticipated air traffic expansion in the most efficient way during the next 10 years?
