STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR.OB) and INFORM GmbH, announced today they are integrating their existing solutions for airline and airport turn management and hub control into a new offering. The companies have begun to connect their software and data for a launch project with a mutual airline customer, one of the largest in the world. The combined solution will deliver greater predictability, reliability, and schedule integrity, with fewer delays and disruptions for airlines and airports.
PASSUR's flight, airspace, and airport efficiency solutions combined with INFORM's hub control and turn-management platform will enhance the accuracy of important metrics and milestones in a flight's transition from arrival to departure. The PASSUR solutions include PASSUR's Estimated-Time-of-Arrival (ETA) predictions; en-route and terminal airspace constraint predictions; Air Traffic Management (ATM) key performance indicator alerts; and real-time surface surveillance and gate conflict alerting. The INFORM solutions include turn monitoring, prediction of real and potential bottlenecks in above- and below-wing ground operations, optimized deployment and allocation of mobile and static resources, and a suite of equipment localization and mobility options.
The new integrated product will help airlines and airports successfully minimize the short time intervals between arriving and departing aircraft. In addition, the product will help forecast potential ground delays, prevent gate conflicts, out-of-position ground crews, and unnecessary gate changes, including other last minute disruptions that can interfere with a smoothly choreographed arrival-departure sequence.
"We are looking forward to working with PASSUR in leveraging the proven product portfolios of both of our organizations to deliver a unique collaborative solution that will help increase hub efficiency and reduce operating costs," said Thomas Schmidt, INFORM´s Aviation Director.
"The market has been demanding accurate, affordable turn management solutions and we're pleased to be working with INFORM GmbH, with their strong global reputation, as part of our continuing program to reduce the cost of airline operations and improve the customer experience," said Jim Barry, President and CEO of PASSUR Aerospace.
