The importance of airport planning

Handling the great number of passengers in an airport is a massive challenge for airports all over the world. No passenger wants to stand in long queues for hours to check in luggage, passing through security, or board an airplane. To avoid long queues, stressed out airport staff, and unhappy passengers, an airport planning strategy is at its uttermost essential.   

At Copenhagen Optimization we have developed a software solution that will enable airports to forecast, analyse, plan, end execute airport operations more efficiently – to the benefit of passengers, airlines, and the airport itself. By implementing our Better Airport software, airport planning will become more efficient, and the passenger will get a much better experience when traveling.

What is airport planning?

Airport planning is a process of designing the utilization of airport infrastructure to meet future demand while considering different airport scenarios. The airport planning process includes airport capacity planning, airport layout, and airspace design. 

The airport capacity is the number of passengers an airport can handle within a specific time period. It is important to plan for future airport capacity as the demand for air travel is constantly growing. The airport layout includes the design of terminal buildings, runways, taxiways, aprons, and other airport facilities. The airport layout must be designed to accommodate the airport’s capacity and meet the requirements of different aircraft types. 

Why is airport planning important?

An airport planning strategy is important for several reasons:

 

The importance of airport planning is very clear. Through thorough planning your airport will become even better.

At Copenhagen Optimization, we have developed a software solution that can help you with airport planning. Our software Better Airport will help you reduce waiting time and improve airport efficiency. Feel free to contact us to learn how our software can benefit your operation. 

A software solution for every part of the airport

Our Better Airport software is your consolidated and easy-to-use platform that connect the operations, analysis, and planning for the entire airport. Better Airport is divided into six important areas of the airport: Better Check-in, Better Security, Better Baggage, Better Border, Better Stand & Gate, and Better Forecast.

Improve the check-in area

Our Check-in optimization solution, Better Check-in, provides an optimized and efficient check-in counter allocation. This part of your airport planning solution is based on data about processing times, airline and handler preferences, and passenger arrival curves. The feature Queue Vision in the Better Check-in program allows the user to allocate staff resources to the queue areas and the check-in counters when passenger demand is high. This way the passenger flow bottlenecks will be reduced to a great extent. 

More efficient security checkpoint with Better Security

The Better Security module is designed to optimize your security operations, making sure that all passengers can be checked fast and thoroughly while also reducing wait times for passengers during peaks, and for staff members when passenger numbers are low.

Better Baggage

Baggage handling at airports have three dimensions and all with their individual challenges. It is crucial to make sure the bags are transported quickly to the right place without blocking infrastructure or resources. Our Better Baggage solution is an airport planning tool that gives you strategic and tactical advantages when handling baggage, whether it be inbound, reclaim, or transfer bags. The platform provides strategic plans to ensure any decision can be executed on the spot with ease. 

Better Border

The Better Border platform provides airports with an easy-to-use operating system for managing passengers passing through the emigration and immigration checkpoints. This product creates a forecasted passenger arrival curve that will help you optimize desk opening plans allowing them to prepare more efficiently, ultimately saving time on each individual case whilst ensuring compliance standards are always met even in busy time periods.

Better Stand & Gate

The intelligent algorithms of the Better Stand & Gate system take all constraints and forecasts into account when implemented to optimize the stand and gate area. By improving the current allocation of aircraft to stands, gates, and parking positions, the airport will see a number of benefits. Among those are improved utilization of parking stands, reduction in delays, less fuel burn, and fewer passengers missing their flights. The solution can be applied in daily operations as well as an analytical platform bringing consensus between operational, tactical, and strategical levels.

Better Forecast

Our Better Forecast solution creates passenger and baggage arrival curves that are updated in real-time and are a key input to the automated planning flow in an airport. This ensures that the passengers will pass through the various touchpoints in an airport more efficiently. With Better Forecast in place at your airport, it will help managers make better decisions and planning by providing real-time data.  

Satisfied clients all over the world

Years of experience have taught us that airports around the world face similar challenges.
