The PASSUR Airport Operations Program
Airports are being asked to provide more cost-effective, efficient, and safe airfield operations for carriers, to help them achieve greater throughput, quicker turns and fewer ground delays - critical elements of airline profitability in today's challenging environment. Airports also want to consolidate airfield management functions onto a single platform to minimize staff requirements. The PASSUR Airport Operations Program provides airport ramp tower, operations, and communication centers the alerts, decision support, planning and analysis tools they need to run a more efficient and safe operation, and the web platform for cost-effective communication, coordination, and collaboration with all the airport's key constituencies. It includes modules for field condition reporting/eNOTAM integration, live dashboards of key operations metrics, flight and airspace visualization, and "long onboard" ground delay management (Tarmac Delay Monitor™).
