The new technology is set to streamline processes for both airlines and ground handling services at the facility

Perth Airport has rolled out a new operational system which it hopes will enhance airline and ground handling flight management.

The new initiative – which was setup in partnership with aviation technology firm Veovo – aims to improve operational performance and agility by accessing trusted data, analytics, and intelligent automation to improve decision making.

“The new system will provide our airline partners and their handlers seamless and timely information, real-time flight updates, and the opportunity for increased collaboration between the airport and its users,” said Scott Woodward, Perth Airport chief operating officer.

“With the current volatility, the need to deliver safe and reliable conditions for our airline partners to operate will be critical as the aviation industry recovers from the severe impacts of the pandemic.”

The intelligent airport platform operated by the technology firm analyses data spanning flights, airside and landside activities in order to provide clarity in real time. With the help of decision support and optimisation tools, the airport has been able to build sturdy resourcing plans.

James Williamson, CEO of Veovo, said: “While the whole industry rethinks its approach to operational planning, Perth Airport is leading the way on improving efficiency and the customer experience in the new age of travel.”

It is hoped that the new system will provide the airport with improved resilience as well as offering a more predictable experience for passengers passing through the airport.
