LONDON – Aerocloud Systems has been given the opportunity to provide the Bahamas’ largest airport with Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS) and Gate management systems (GMS). The state-of-the-art modular platform is planned to be introduced in the third quarter of 2022.
Lyden Pindling Airport Continues to Grow
They are hoping to revolutionise the way Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) processes the millions of passengers it welcomes through its gates over the next three years.
CEO and co-founder George Richardson said: “We’re shaking the industry up – airports deserve better, and we are providing the infrastructure to achieve this. Nassau is the perfect example of an airport that was in need of change, and I am delighted they selected us to lead their innovation and assist with the growth and ambitions that this airport team can deliver”.
The automation based, 100% cloud-native software is looking to optimise LPIA using its predictive capabilities. It can improve future gate allocation, whilst also providing feedback to airport stakeholders with trends and analysis on things such as cancellations, delays and diversions.
Just 3 weeks ago Aerocloud announced a merger with passenger processing specialist Flight Solutions LTD. This looks to have been key throughout the deal that has brought the company to The Bahamas.
Paul Secker CEO of Flight Solutions, who will be coming on board as co-founder and Global Director of Common Use, said this about the coming together of both companies to offer a slick, full package to the industry:
“We are excited about the future of airports as a whole. AeroCloud has grown exponentially in the time since I met with George and Ian over a year ago, and we are on the exact same page when it comes to offering our existing and future customers a much better alternative. This merger will create a ground-breaking platform for airport operations and we are thrilled to be part of this revolution.”
Requirements shift after COVID-19 struggles
Requirements for regional airports have doubled since 2019, and the current infrastructure is struggling to keep up with the demand. This is where the recent merger between Aerocloud and Flight Solutions LTD pays dividends.
The staff on the ground will be thankful for the Artificial Intelligence driven system that creates more efficient day-to-day running of commercial aprons, whilst also reducing the number of manual tasks needed using its innovative forward planning features. These features allow them to plan gate scenarios up to three months in advance through machine learning and artificial intelligence, with little to no manual intervention required.
These changes within LPIA won’t just benefit the staff. The public using the airport should start to see shorter waiting times at both check-in desks and gates prior to boarding. Utilising the software predictive approach to operational events, such as spikes in passenger numbers and congestion on the apron and gate areas will improve.
Richardson added: “Our gate management system will create a paradigm shift for Lynden Pindling, greatly reducing the number of manual tasks required to manage their operations, and also alerting key stakeholders to take proactive measures towards avoiding conflicts and irregular operations.”
