The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and Assaia International AG are deploying Assaia’s Turnaround Control solution at the airport. The solution will help improve turnaround transparency and assist CVG in working with airline partners to enhance on-time performance. The system will provide a 24/7 overview of what is happening during turnarounds and will notify employees if it detects any deviations from schedule. It can identify the elements or situations that most often cause delays and report back for managers to take corrective action.
“Assaia’s technology adds critical data points to CVG’s early-stage neural network for operational advancements,” said Brian Cobb, chief innovation officer, CVG. “Structured data generated by artificial intelligence will provide information to make decisions, optimize airside processes, and improve efficiency and safety.”
CVG Airport is installing new cameras and artificial intelligence technology at several of its gates to capture turnaround data and provide visibility to its airline partners of what is happening at the airport. Computer vision is used to generate insights from video streams and leverage untapped operational data to optimize apron operations in real-time. The system’s rollout began in April 2021, with the first gates going live this month.
“CVG is a leader in innovation by applying new technology to benefit the airport’s ecosystem,” said Max Diez, CEO at Assaia. “Creating full visibility over airside operations will increase operational efficiencies and thus allow for higher utilization of the airport’s infrastructure.”
