Aeromexico has selected Passur Aerospace’s integrated suite of traffic management solutions to manage growing operations at its primary hub at Mexico City International Airport (MEX).

The US-based technology vendor said that the new solution will enable Aeromexico to boost the capacity of MEX and avoid delays and congestion.

It will also help the passenger carrier to improve customer satisfaction, slash operational expenses, and improve on-time performance / punctuality.

Passur will deploy many of the core elements of its Passur Integrated Traffic Management (PITM) platform.

The PITM platform includes advanced flight trajectory prediction, airport capacity enhancement, demand and capacity forecasting tools, and collaborative airport surface flow management programmes.

“We are making this investment in Passur because we believe we must lead innovation to ensure our airline and primary hub lead in global performance.”

MEX senior vice-president at Aeromexico, Alejandro Contreras Campos, said: “Ensuring predictable, reliable service in and out of Mexico City International Airport is an essential requirement toward realising our goal of maintaining and growing Aeromexico’s position as a dominant hemispheric transfer hub and carrier.

“We are making this investment in Passur because we believe we must lead innovation, in collaboration with our main stakeholders, to ensure our airline and primary hub lead in global performance and competitiveness.”

Passur’s solutions will be provided on a web-hosted common operating platform and will include the participation of all key MEX stakeholders, including Mexico’s Air Navigation Service Provider / ATC (SENEAM) and airport operator Aeropuerto Internacional de la Cuidad México (AICM).

The technology firm’s solutions will form a core element of an airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) system, which is planned to be deployed at the airport in the future.

Passur’s platform is also being used by Delta Air Lines and Air France, two other major partners in the SkyTeam alliance.
