AeroCloud Systems (AeroCloud), the 100% cloud native software platform dedicated to the support of airports, has won a contract to provide the Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS) and gate management systems (GMS) for the largest international airport in The Bahamas and the fourth largest airport in the Caribbean.
The initial three-year contract, the start of a new partnership between Lynden Pindling International Airport and AeroCloud, will see new operations management systems in place from Q3 2022.
George Richardson, CEO and Co-Founder of AeroCloud said: “With our state-of-the-art modular platform, we can provide Lynden Pindling International Airport with a best-in-class solution to help manage the millions of passengers it processes each year.
“We’re shaking the industry up – airports deserve better, and we are providing the infrastructure to achieve this. NAS is the perfect example of an airport that was in need of change, and I am delighted they selected us to lead their innovation and assist with the growth ambitions that this airport team can deliver.”
AeroCloud offers airports a cost-effective, and revolutionary approach to improving and developing their management systems while requiring little to no initial capital outlay.
The platform’s transforming approach focuses on automating labour-intensive tasks and predicting operational events such as spikes in passenger numbers and congestion on the apron and gate areas, both of which occur during busy peak periods at airports like LPIA. The platform’s open architecture allows for access to a wide range of data sources, thus providing airport stakeholders with insights into operational trends such as cancellations, delays, and diversions. These predictive capabilities in turn facilitate prescriptive analytics that can optimise future gate allocation planning in a way that revolutionises airport decision making.
LPIA already has access to enhanced arrival and departure data via the AeroCloud platform. The AI-Driven GMS will prove particularly valuable in supporting the management of the commercial aprons with the aim to enhance operational efficiency.
Richardson added: “Our gate management system will create a paradigm shift for Lynden Pindling International Airport greatly reducing the amount of manual tasks required to manage their operations, and also alerting key stakeholders to take proactive measures towards avoiding conflicts and irregular operations.”
It’s a fail-safe solution and we applaud Lynden Pindling International Airport’s progressive approach towards resolving the disruption issues faced by many airports recently. Our tool requires little to no manual intervention for resource planning. This was imperative to meet their automation needs”
By utilising specialist tools embedded within the system, AeroCloud’s software also allows airports to see, and respond to, peaks and troughs in passenger levels.
Andrew Hoppe, Director of Airport Engagement, Americas for AeroCloud, said: “This is the future of airport operational management, and that immediately resonated with the team at Lynden Pindling International Airport. They were especially intrigued with how AeroCloud’s innovative forward planning feature will allow them to plan gate scenarios up to three months in advance using AI and Machine Learning. Our product is innovative, cost-effective and efficient, and offers customers unlimited user licences under the umbrella of absolute security.”
AeroCloud recently announced a merger with Flight Solutions to augment its capabilities to include passenger processing services. In the forthcoming months AeroCloud will continue to roll-out its systems and approach across American and European airports.
