Software developer Gentrack has been selected to implement its multipurpose airport operating system (AOS) for five airports in the UK.
The Airport 20/20 software solution includes modules to assist aeronautical billing, resource management, flight information display (FIDS), collaborative decision making, interactive dashboards, airport intelligence, property management and an airport operational database (AODB).
The airports that have signed on to receive the software include Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports, operated by AGS, and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield and Durham Tees Valley Airport, both owned by the Peel Group.
Nigel Farley, general manager, Airport 20/20, Gentrack, said, “The flows of information across the airport community and to external stakeholders such as passengers and airlines is growing exponentially. The value of airport operating systems that enable enhanced collaborative decision making by all airport stakeholders are now viewed as critical components within the airport community. Through implementation of the integrated 20/20 FIDS, AODB, billing and resource management solutions, we have been able to streamline the flows of operational data to ensure that all stakeholders can collaborate in a timely manner with access to accurate information on all aspects of the airport community. Our newest airport customers within AGS and the Peel Group will be able to benefit from this improved level of real-time information and collaboration.”
Mike Cotterill, finance director, Peel Group, said, “We’ve experienced significant throughput increases in freight and 9% passenger growth in the last year. We went to market for a state-of-the-art system to support our continued growth, and selected Gentrack’s Airport 20/20 software after a very competitive review process. They proved to be the outstanding candidate in terms of product, team experience, enthusiasm, project management approach and aftersales support. The airport looks forward to building on its success by working with Gentrack.”
