Better Stand & Gate allocates stands and gates, considering all constraints and forecasts estimated times and aircraft links using machine learning. 

With the development of Better Stand & Gate, the solution will be taken to the next level, which includes refining the machine learning components and advancing Better Airport’s aircraft allocation solution.

Allocation plans are made in legacy systems through a highly manual process. Plan quality is primarily driven by airline preferences even though there is an understanding that more factors should be included. Scenario planning is cumbersome and time consuming. Different systems are in place for long-term and daily operations – with results not adding up. Plan robustness is low with a need to make many manual changes on day of operation. Does this resemble your airport? Then read on.


Better Stand&Gate improves the current allocation of aircraft to parking positions in airports. Improving the allocation brings multiple benefits including improved utilization of parking stands, reduction in delays, less fuel burn, and fewer passenger missing their flight. Using advanced mathematical modelling and machine learning, Better Stand&Gate optimizes the allocation of stands and gates to aircraft turn-rounds with respect to the specified business goals. The solution can be applied in daily operations as well as an analytical platform bringing consensus between operational, tactical, and strategical levels.


Better Stand&Gate is cloud-based, marketed as Software-as-a-Service, and accessible through a web browser with no on-site installation. All users are looking at and working to the same updated plans.
