Improve airport operations
Everyday millions of passengers travel through airports around the world, and it is a massive challenge for airports to handle these passengers in the best way possible. No one wants to stand in long queues for hours to check-in luggage, to pass through security and to board an airplane at an airport that is not optimized properly.
At Copenhagen Optimization we have put our many years of experience within airport optimization to good use in our software solution Better Airport. The software solution enables airports to forecast passenger flows and peaks and optimize all areas of the operation accordingly – from curb to gate. Our optimization solution will help you give travellers a better experience by easing the passenger journey through the airport and reducing long waiting times.

What are airport operations?
Benefits of airport operations management software
Our solution will help operation managers take the right decision based on data
At Copenhagen Optimization we know that many airport operations management systems struggle to forecast passenger flows and allocate the right amount of staff resources to the many airport passenger touchpoints all around the airport.
Therefore, we have developed a data-driven software solution consisting of six individual modules that can help you optimize the most crucial areas within airport operations, such as forecast of peaks in passenger flows, check-in, security, baggage handling, border security, and stand and gate allocation. By implementing the Better Airport software, passenger wait times will be reduced and passenger travel experience will be improved when visiting your airport.
Fast check-in even when passenger flows are peaking
The Check-in optimization solution Better Check-in provides you with an efficient and streamlined approach to counter allocation. This part of your airport planning process is based on data about processing times, airplane arrival and departure times, boarding pass distribution, and passenger arrival curves so that you can select which areas of the airport that require more attention during heavy peak periods. The feature Queue Vision will enable you to see the exact amount of staff resources needed to be allocated to the queue areas and the check-in counter to avoid long queues.
Improve waiting time at the security checkpoint
The Better Security module is designed to optimize the security area for all passengers to be checked fast and thoroughly. This tool will create lane opening plans optimized to comply with the desired service level of the security checkpoint. This feature will contribute to improving airport operations by reducing the time passengers are waiting in line as the tool will help you allocate the necessary staff resources in due time to avoid, or at least reduce, queuing.
Better and more efficient handling of 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.
Efficient border control
Better Border is our software tool that can help you and your airport to optimize the emigration and immigration checkpoints in the airport. Based on a passenger arrival curve, you will be able to optimize desk opening plans to make sure that a suitable number of staff resources are allocated to the emigration and immigration checkpoints. This way the checkpoint will always run smoothly even in passenger peak times.
Improve the on-time performance
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.
Thorough forecasting is essential
Forecasting the number of passengers and adapting resources to the passenger demand is crucial for improving the passenger experience in the airport. Our Better Forecast solution is the key to automated planning for airports that needs real-time data on passenger and baggage arrival curves so they can make informed decisions about how to handle flows in the most efficient way.
Satisfied clients all over the world
Years of experience have taught us that airports around the world have similar challenges. All airports experience challenges regarding forecasting passenger flows and adapting of the number of staff to the demand. It does not matter whether the airport is located at the American continent or at the European continent.
We have helped airports all round the world by implementing our Better Security software and optimizing their airport operations management system to ensure more efficient processes.
