BSCA to deploy new AI-based operations management platform

EMMA’s AI platform will help BSCA minimise delays, fuel usage and operational costs.

Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) in Belgium has utilised airport management solutions provider Emma Systems for its artificial intelligence (AI)-based airport operations management platform.

The duo will partner in order to configure, trial and commission the platform at the airport.

This new AI platform is expected to improve efficiency at BSCA, helping the airport adhere to Eurocontrol’s airport collaborative decision-making (A-CDM) requirements.

The technology is designed to make optimum use of resources at the airport and also improve the predictability of air traffic.

It has the capability to analyse present and past air traffic flows in order to anticipate key timestamps and future operational difficulties.

Once installed, the technology will help BSCA to minimise delays, fuel usage and operational costs.

EMMA Systems platform uses microservices architecture, which allows scope for inclusion of new solutions and features to meet the airport’s evolving needs in the future.

EMMA Systems co-founder and CEO Wisam Costandi said: “We are extremely happy that BSCA has selected EMMA Systems as their partner to jointly develop their A-CDM approach.

“The airport has a unique setup and has developed commendable ambitions through its long-term plan. EMMA is ideally placed to support the airport’s success now and in the future.”

BSCA will implement A-CDM and all the functionalities of EMMA’s airport operation management solution.

By introducing this technology, BSCA aims to enhance passenger experience and better manage rising passenger volume.

Brussels South Charleroi Airport CEO Philippe Verdonck said: “We look forward to working closely with EMMA Systems to develop a best-in-class A-CDM approach and leverage the power of EMMA’s cutting-edge technology towards reaching new levels of efficiency and sustainability within our operations.”
