Predictive technology, key in the operation of airports
Thanks to new technological tools, even the most air traffic terminals in the world can optimize their efficiency
New technological tools are allowing to improve the performance of the main airports on the planet. Fraport AG, the company that manages the Frankfurt air terminal, has put itself at the forefront with the implementation of a system called ELDTs (Estimated Landing Times) that integrates the data of its operational tools and analytical platforms with the FlightAware flight tracking platform. This way you can optimize the efficiency and the assignment of personnel on the ground.
"FlightAware's innovative predictive technology will take Fraport's operational excellence to the next level," said Dr. Pierre Dominique Prümm, member of Fraport AG's executive board for aviation and infrastructure. "We are gaining a powerful real-time tool to advance our Frankfurt Airport operations, benefitting both our airlines and passengers, ultimately reinforcing our commitment to ensure that all passengers have a" good trip "to through Frankfurt Airport ", emphasized Prümm.
With more direct routes than any other airport in the world, Frankfurt Airport plays a key role in connecting passengers traveling through Europe. For the current summer schedule, the airport has 94 passenger airlines that fly to 306 destinations in 98 countries around the world. A total of 137 intercontinental destinations are available through Frankfurt, underscoring its role as a leading center in the global air transport system. In addition, the Frankfurt Airport is handling an average of 1,500 flights per day, more than any other European airport.
"Traditionally, our data has been used to understand past or present events." The use of our ELDT by Fraport is an important step for us and demonstrates our ability to predict future events, "said Daniel Baker, founder and CEO of FlightAware. "Without a doubt, this will have a positive impact on the more than 70 million passengers who travel through the Frankfurt airport each year".
