Flexibility - The Key to Flight Information Display
Flexibility is the key to Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS) in two ways:
- Freedom to choose the most suitable display
- Freedom to choose what form of information to display
Improving the Services to PRM Using IT
When the European Community regulation 1107/2006 came into full force in July 2008, airports within Europe were required to provide assistance to persons with reduced mobility (PRM) to enable them to make the same use of air transport as people who are not disabled.
Partnering to Provide Local Services
UFIS Airport Solutions' collaborative airport management approach is to offer airport management solutions which are key to optimized efficiency, maximized profits and high quality for the entire airport community. When delivering its products and services to customers, UFIS-AS has a similar collaborative approach -- it combines its global knowledge of airports, systems and software with the support and cultural knowledge of a local partner -- to deliver a winning solution to a customer.
Athens International Airport
As Athens International Airport in Greece was building their new airport, they called upon UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) to provide not only the flight information display system (FIDS) but also its operational expertise to ensure that the airport would be ready to go into operation from day one. What was the result? The operational aspects of the airport were ready three months ahead of schedule!
Bangalore International Airport
As the new Bengaluru International Airport, Bangalore, India, was making its final preparation for opening, it needed a function on its website to provide passengers with up-to-date flight information. So the airport turned to two of its trusted partners -- UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) and Oracle -- for a solution. Working together, the two provided a web portal, just in time for the airport's opening in May 2008.
Changi Airport Group, Singapore
When the Changi Airport Group (CAG), then known as the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), in conjunction with Siemens Business Solutions (SBS) awarded UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) a contract to provide a flight management system for Changi Airport, UFIS-AS used it as a springboard to develop and install a new release of its production line -- UFISŪ 4.6.
Chisinau International Airport
At the same time that UFIS Airport Solutions' (UFIS-AS) Universal Flight Information System (UFISŪ) is powering some of the largest and busiest airports in the world, it is also designed to fit the needs of some of the smallest. In July 2009, Chisinau International Airport in Moldova, with 806,691 passengers, began using UFISŪ with a seamless cutover from their existing system with no down-time experienced by the airport.
Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport
When Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport began using UFIS Airport Solutions' (UFIS-AS) product portfolio in June 2008, it became the third airport, and the first brownfield airport, in India to use the Universal Flight Information System (UFISŪ). Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru International Airport, Bangalore, Bangalore -- both greenfield airports -- began using UFISŪ in March and May 2008, respectively.
Dubai International Airport
Dubai. Just mentioning this city's name brings images of the biggest, the best, the most luxurious. One website calls it the city of superlatives. It boasts the tallest skyscraper in the world. Its airport just opened the single largest terminal building in the world. Yet, Dubai International Airport relies on UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) -- a worldwide but by Dubai-standards small company -- to provide its flight management system.
At Hannover-Langenhagen Airport, Germany, UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) supplied and installed the Flight Processing Management System (FPMS), the Resource Management System (RMS) and the Location Management System (LMS).
Hyderabad International Airport
When the new Rajiv Gandhi International Airport opened at Shamshabad in Hyderabad in March 2008 with UFISŪ running, it was the first of several successes for UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) in India. The first green-field airport built in India with public-private partnership began operations in March with UFISŪ products playing a key role in its flight planning, apron resource management and flight information display.
Lisbon International Airport
At Lisbon Portela International Airport, UFIS Airport Solutions' Universal Flight Information System's (UFISŪ) main purpose is to support the airport's operational department. From its modular product package UFIS-AS installed a Flight Information Processing (FIPS) system using its own Airport Operational Database (AODB) as the heart of the Flight Information System.
Singapore Airport Terminal Services
At Changi Airport, Singapore, Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) is the leading provider of integrated ground handling and in-flight catering services, where it handles some 500 flight movements per day. SATS needs to schedule a challenging total of 8.000 personnel for long-term planning and 4.000 for daily deployment. To manage this complex task, SATS uses UFIS Airport Solutions' Universal Flight Information System (UFISŪ).
Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok
When Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport went into operation in September 2006, it became one of the most highly integrated airports in the world. At the heart of the operational integration is the Airport Operational Database from UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS).
Warsaw International Airport
Building a new terminal and expanding your IT system at the same time is a huge task at any time. But couple that with continuous growth of passenger traffic and you have a task that will challenge the best of airports. In 2005, Warsaw's Frederic Chopin International Airport and Polish Airports' State Enterprise (PPL) faced just such a challenge. And they turned to their reliable partner -- UFIS Airport Solutions (UFIS-AS) -- to help them with the expansion of their IT system.
