Tocumen International Airport in Panama, Central America, has selected ARINC's Airport Messaging Service (AMS) solution to help analyse airport operations data.

Chosen after an extensive review, with the support of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the new solution will assist the airport in capturing both operational and advance passenger information (API) data from international air transport carriers.

ARINC is also responsible for providing load messages (LDM), baggage source messages (BSM), and movement messages (MVT), which incorporate critical data regarding the weight, movement and baggage related to flights arriving to and departing from the airport.

Tocumen International Airport general manager said Juan Carlos Pino said that ARINC AviNet Airport Messaging Service allows capturing data from every airline that operates at Tocumen.

"The new solution will assist the airport in capturing both operational and advance passenger information data from international air transport carriers."

"We have found the ARINC solution to be the most effective available and a significant benefit to our operations," Pino said.

The solution is also being used to carry out the on-going analyses to enhance airport efficiency.

ARINC claims that the transmission of API data supports the border security requirements of Panama, with the API messages offering comprehensive arrival/departure passenger and crew information.

ARINC Global Networks and IT Solutions vice president Yun Chong said that the solution will support the airport to use the company's AviNet Airport Messaging Service to improve airport operations.

"Tocumen International Airport is joining other industry leaders who are using operation data analysis to improve airport efficiency," Chong said.
