Dubai Technology Partners (DTP) has implemented its tNexus Message Hub system and Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA Quintiq fixed resource planning application at Dubai International Airport, UAE.
The move is expected to address data-capture problems and optimise the use of the airport’s fixed resources.
Dubai International Airport handles 65 airlines to 240 destinations and reported an influx of over 89 million passengers last year, making it the world’s busiest airport.
The DELMIA Quintiq application has been integrated in the airport’s IT landscape. The application enables automated capacity optimisation for fixed resources such as 212 airport stands, 142 gates, 526 check-in counters and 28 baggage belts.
The DTP tNexus Message Hub processes the data, which is then used as inputs by the DELMIA Quintiq application.
DTP managing director Abdul Razzak Mikati said: “DTP tNexus Message Hub provides the ability to parse 38 different types of custom, non-standard and standard messages, such as IATA Type B, ATC and email attachments.
“The system can process high volumes of messages from numerous sources, including non-standard communication channels.”
Dubai Airports SVP operations Frank McCrorie said: “By partnering with DTP and Dassault Systèmes to deploy the latest technologies and drive digital transformation across our properties, we are extremely proud that DXB is one of the first airports in the world to implement real-time optimisation to efficiently allocate resources and consequently deliver on the promise we have made to passengers of a customer experience that is second-to-none.”
In August, UAE-based Farnek Company won a five-year contract from Dubai Airports to offer facilities management (FM) services.
