Aerobahn has been in use for over 10 years, delivering more than 12 million user hours to a set of licensed users that has nearly doubled in the past two years. The newest release of Aerobahn, Version 8, is now available and incorporates a number of updates and new features, including:

  • Automated Report Retrieval that enables users to automate the export of any data from Aerobahn directly into their proprietary systems
  • Automated Rule-based Workflow Transitions that employs Aerobahn's Dynamic Rules Engine for automatic workflow monitoring
  • The new Aerobahn De-icing Manager which seamlessly integrates with the Aerobahn Surface Manager for proactive management of winter operations

The Aerobahn Product Suite (Surface Manager, Departure Manager, Airport Status Dashboard and De-icing Manager) is improving the efficiency and collaboration of airport authorities, airlines and air navigation service providers. It is the industry's most widely-deployed airport operations management system, currently in use at 25 airports world-wide, including five of the 10 busiest airports in the U.S. (Atlanta, Denver, New York - JFK, Charlotte and Phoenix International Airports). Aerobahn played a key role in Atlanta achieving their lowest level of delays in 2012 since measurement began in 1990.
