Public transport stations are always bustling with foot traffic and vehicular. Airports around the world are the first to adopt new technologies to streamline their processes and enable better monitoring and mobility. Sweden’s Swedavia AB, that operates 10 state owned airports in the country has installed GateKeeper Systems for more efficient deployment of certain necessary functions.
Ground transportation management systems and controlling traditional taxi traffic with dispatch function and apprides are both necessary at airports. Swedavia was looking at a system that can help it manage traffic flow and other, environmental, organizational and functional issues related to it and it found the answer in GateKeeper Systems. The new system installed will be integrated with Swedavia’s other systems like ERP system and Business Intelligence (BI) software for statistics.
“We met a large number of the requirements with our current system,” commented Brian Richardson, GateKeeper Systems’ President. “But there are a few items that we’ve developed as a result of Swedavia’s requirements that will also benefit others, including globalization, multi-factor dispatch priority, and single system for multiple airports.”
The system will categorize vehicle entry to the airport based on environmental markers like fuel. It will also ensure data collected is secured and private with an ability to examine and classify data and information from multiple sources. The system is a great customer service support tool with inclusive features to respond quickly to peak activity periods to limit wait time, and communicate status to drivers in real-time. Its an omnipresent system, where a single system will be able to connect through and operate from all 10 Airports. What’s more, it can be localized and globalized, making it apt for Swedish time zone and language as well as international.
The system can be adopted globally and can be equally beneficial in organizing functions at other international Airports. The system will initially be implemented in Q4 of 2019 at Swedavia’s Bromma Stockholm Airport (2.5 million passengers) and Stockholm Arlanda Airport (26.6M passengers) airports, then scale to the remaining Swedavia airports beginning in 2020: Kiruna Airport (282M passengers), Luleå Airport (1.2M passengers, Umeå Airport (1.05M passengers), Åre Östersund Airport (531k passengers), Göteborg Landvetter Airport (6.8M passengers), Visby Airport (491k passengers), Ronneby Airport (237k passengers), and Malmö Airport (2.2M passengers).
