The new platform was developed in collaboration with ADB Safegate.

OFOQ will serve as a central database and management tool for all operational information taking place at the airport. It will provide the operator with insights into all operational procedures and facilitate data-driven decision-making processes.

The platform’s Airport Resource Management System feature will help in controlling airport procedures, such as aircraft parking, opening and closing of check-in counters as well as passenger boarding gates, and the management of baggage belts and carousels.

It also includes a Flight Information Display System (FIDS) to offer accurate real-time flight-related data.

According to RAC, the use of OFOQ is expected to improve planning processes, reduce disruptions and enhance the passenger experience.

ADB Safegate vice-president Thorben Burghardt said: “OFOQ is a modern, integrated and comprehensive digital platform, that will help us to manage King Khalid International Airport’s with increased operational efficiency.

“The successful launch comes as the result of a strategic partnership between Riyadh Airports Company and ADB Safegate – two companies dedicated to developing innovative digital solutions.”

RAC CEO Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Maghlouth said, “As part of our commitment to digital transformation, we are delighted to have launched our latest digital platform, OFOQ, which will work to ensure operational efficiency, sustainability and improve the overall passenger experience.”

RAC manages and operates the KKIA.

Located 35km north of Riyadh, the airport features five passenger terminals, a Royal Terminal and two parallel runways.
