Perth Airport in Australia has installed a new airport operational system for streamlining airline and ground handler flight management procedures.

The project has been undertaken in partnership with Veovo, a provider of information technology and services.

The new system will enhance operational performance and quickness by using reliable data, analytics and intelligent automation, enabling coordinated decision-making across the airport, for every flight, on a daily basis.

Perth Airport chief operating officer Scott Woodward said that the upgraded operational management system will swiftly increase the airport’s ability to scale up its procedures efficiently after international and domestic travel resumes completely.

Woodward said: “The new system will provide our airline partners and their handlers seamless and timely information, real-time flight updates and the opportunity for increased collaboration between the airport and its users.

“And with the current volatility, the need to deliver safe and reliable conditions for our airline partners to operate will be critical as the aviation industry recovers from the severe impacts of the pandemic.”

Perth Airport chief financial officer Brian Pereira said that the airport and Veovo executed the complex transition to the new system seamlessly during the pandemic, without disrupting critical airport services.

Veovo’s Intelligent Airport Platform links and examines data in connection with the flights, airside and landside activities to offer precision for the airport, its aviation partners and passengers in real-time.

Its optimisation and decision support tools allow the airport to form strong resourcing plans and handle unbalanced operations, leading to more efficient gate allocations, enhanced flexibility, and a more foreseeable experience for customers.

Veovo CEO James Williamson said: “We’re delighted that Perth has partnered with Veovo to undertake one of the industry’s most significant digital transformations at such a critically-important time.

“While the whole industry rethinks their approach to operational planning, Perth Airport is leading the way on improving efficiency and the customer experience in the new age of travel.”
