Potential summer chaos in airports due to Covid-19 checks. This is a potential but very likely scenario according to both IATA and ACI. Passenger traffic is set to increase to nearly three-fold this summer compared to the month of May, and this will likely amount to an unprecedented operational challenge in most airports.
Terminal space will be constrained due to physical distancing requirements and multiple and diverse Covid-19 checks will significantly slow passenger processing-time. Add to this, that airline schedules indicate more and steeper peaks in air traffic than seen before, and you can imagine why handling the summer traffic can be a challenge.
At Copenhagen Optimization we have focused on the effect of Restarting Aviation for some time now and we have created a range of webinars explaining how we believe airports can deal with the new reality the best way possible. Click below to watch our webinars on demand and get inspired.
The volatility in traffic caused by Covid-19 has revealed the challenges for non-consolidated operational planning systems.
We are seeing new traffic patterns, which gives less value from historic data. Combined with high volatility in traffic and frequent changes in government regulations we see a need for airports to automate and streamline their operational planning.
In this webinar, we will focus on:
– How to asses your current state and identify options
– The importance of organizational alignment and collaboration
– The requirements for a successful system consolidation
– Procurement and showcasing of solutions
Covid-19 has presented airports with a range of new challenges. In terms of traffic forecasting, the volatile state of flight schedules and government restrictions are limiting the value of historical reference data, creating the need for handling a multitude of forecasting scenarios and understanding their associated effect on operations. While difficult, forecasting has never been more important to ensure an effective operation.
We argue, that the ability to forecast the traffic outlook and size the operation accordingly will be the determining factor in a successful and financially sustainable ramp-up. Join Copenhagen Optimization’s Kasper Hounsgaard, when we examine how traffic forecasting will be impacted in the coming years and the derived impact on airport planning and operations.
In this webinar, learn how to:
– Produce a high quality forecast during volatile periods
– Limit the amount of manual work
– Utilize your traffic forecast to optimally size your operation
As the aviation industry is slowly restarting following the Covid-19 pandemic, traffic will start to resume. As pleasant and reassuring this might be, it also presents airports with a new set of challenges, which must be overcome.
From this case study session you will learn how London Heathrow has used the Better Check-in solution, a part of Better Airport®, to proactively plan and solve Covid-19 related challenges. From the initial consolidation of terminals in response to low passenger volumes, through the need for handling physical distancing and now the planning for traffic resumption.
Join us when Copenhagen Optimization and Whyline showcase how two applications – Better Airport® and Whyline® – provide airports with the most innovative solution to virtual queue management.
From this webinar, you will learn how to handle three key elements in successfully providing virtual queuing:
– How to make passengers sign-up
– How to plan virtual queue slot assignment
– How to manage virtual queuing as part of the daily operation
Copenhagen Optimization and key airport representatives from London Heathrow, Copenhagen Airport, JFK Terminal 4 and Minneapolis Airport discuss Current Reality at Airports and how to make the best of a challenging situation.
You should listen in if you want inspiration on how airports can utilize the “down-time” most efficiently to prepare your airport operations for the new reality after Covid-19.
In this webinar we’ll focus on:
Kasper Hounsgaard, Managing Partner, Copenhagen Optimization
Susana Desa, VP Operations, JFK Terminal 4
Esben Kolind, Senior Lead Digitalization Consultant, Copenhagen Airport
Neil Ralston, Manager, Airport Operations Analysis & Planning, Minneapolis Airport
Asim Umraz, Senior Operational Capacity and Planning Manager, London Heathrow
Covid-19 has severely affected commercial aviation. These days airports are in the process of tackling the financial and operational consequences of the health crisis to resume operations safely and sustainably. The concept of Zero-Based Planning is a new paradigm for operations planning, defined to stand out in the Covid-19 resumption.
