Vancouver Airport Authority has announced it will continue its 10-year partnership with IT provider AirIT by upgrading its PROPworks airport business system platform and implementing the new Portal solution at Vancouver International Airport (YVR), British Columbia, Canada.
A key component of the PROPworks enhancement project includes the integration of AirIT’s Business Intelligence platform. Powered by Jaspersoft, the business intelligence server integrates with PROPworks and the airport operational database (AODB) to provide real-time analytics and decision-making capabilities. Users will be empowered to create and manage reports, on the fly, through a dynamic web interface.
AirIT will also implement AODB and ESB (enterprise service bus) functionality to replace the airport’s existing ‘Flight Clean-Up System’. This change will allow the airport to more effectively track and manage flight activity and airport resource usage by commercial aircraft, increasing operational efficiency and profitability.
AirIT CEO Betros Wakim said, “YVR has long been considered an airport leader in technology adoption and transforming the travel experience. By taking the opportunity to add these industry-defining features to their lease and revenue management system, they will continue to reinforce their reputation as an industry leader and set the standard for other airports.”
“AirIT has been a valued partner to YVR for many years only strengthened by our decision to upgrade our PROPworks system,” added Bernie Ip, technology services director for the Vancouver Airport Authority. “We look forward to furthering this partnership and future developments with AirIT and [technology partner]the Amadeus group.”
