Veovo and airport slot and capacity planning company OneAlpha have entered a strategic alliance for optimising slots, capacity and resources at airports.
This collaboration will enable airport operators to simplify the slot approval process and increase the use of apron, runway, and terminal capacity and resources.
Veovo stated that integrating OneAlpha solutions with its AODB and Resource Management System would help eliminate the system and communication hurdles between airlines and slot and airport planning teams.
This is expected to help operators make quick and accurate decisions in dynamic-operating situations.
The Cloud-based slot management tool of OneAlpha automates the slot request-to-approval process from a single central tool.
It also checks the requests against the terminal capacity, runway, and apron, resulting in time savings for airport management and slot coordinators.
Upon slot confirmation, OneAlpha’s integration with Veovo’s resource management solution supports smooth delivery to strategic planners for optimising resource planning both in and outside the terminal, which covers counters, stands, baggage belts, and gates.
This also allows the last-minute schedule change requests to be quickly assessed and automatically integrated into the planning horizon.
OneAlpha CEO Carl Jones said: “We’re delighted to partner with Veovo to make it even easier for airports to access our next-generation slot coordination and airport capacity technology through Veovo’s software portfolio.
“By bringing our tools together, we can offer operators and their partners greater confidence and reliability in their planning by ensuring schedule demands always match capacity for smoother planning and operations.”
The collaboration between Veovo and OneAlpha also supports long-term planning and regulatory reporting.
