STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 14, 2012 -- PASSUR(R) Aerospace, Inc.
(OTC: PSSR.PK) announced today that Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Cleveland Burke Lakefront Airport have contracted for the PASSUR(R) Landing Fee Management solution to ensure that the airports capture all their landing fees, forecast and plan revenue accurately, and simplify the process through automation.
"We have a responsibility to ensure that our landing fee program is managed as efficiently, cost-effectively and transparently as possible," said Ricky Smith, Director for the Cleveland Airport System, which manages both Cleveland Hopkins and Burke Lakefront airports. "The PASSUR Landing Fee Management program gives us the ability to manage this aspect of our business in a way that meets our airline tenants' objectives, as well as our own key financial and management goals."
"Access to data and automation of processes are both key components of any airport's future as a well-run business,"
said Jim Barry, PASSUR President and CEO. "As more and more airports turn to PASSUR for landing fee management, there is increasing momentum to adopt this tool as a common, standard platform for the industry."
The subscription to the PASSUR Landing Fee Management program marks an expansion of services PASSUR provides to the Cleveland Airport System, which already subscribes to PASSUR airport operations solutions designed to deliver the most cost-effective operations for carriers and other airport users through optimized airfield management.
The PASSUR Landing Fee Management Program
Airports today are expected to capture all revenues from all flights; assure their airline partners that fees are levied fairly, transparently, and efficiently; and explore new avenues of activity-based revenue. The legacy system of airline self-reporting has become a complex, time-consuming, and inefficient process. The PASSUR landing fee management Program and Airport Management Business Intelligence Reports put airports in control of these critical revenue streams by giving them and their airline partners the independent, standardized, and accurate information tools they need to ensure complete revenue capture, quicker revenue recognition and payment, and effective forecasting and analysis. The program also includes the option for a rich aviation operation statistics data feed into Airport Operational Database (AODB) systems.
The PASSUR Landing Fee Management System also enables airlines to standardize and automate the landing fee process across all airports to ensure accuracy, transparency, and cost efficiencies. Working in concert with airlines at dozens of airports, this system has helped ensure that airlines are not subsidizing airfield operations beyond actual use, resulting in millions of dollars in annual savings.
