AiQ announces new Airside Capacity Modeling Contract at Heathrow

Airside Image AiQ wins new Contract at HeathrowAiQ are pleased to announce that we are now Heathrow’s Airside Operations Seasonal Planners. This operational contract, awarded by HAL in February, is to simulate Apron and Passenger Traffic activity for the whole of Heathrow, the most complex hub airport in the world.

Working with Gebler Tooth Architects (GTA) and using our bespoke 2D simulation model, Transvision AiR, we will maintain an airport capacity model with a reportable database and 2D visual vehicle simulation of the LHR Terminal Airside road and retail operations, parking and stand network.  It  includes a baseline database and simulation model for vehicle operations such as:

  • Arrival and Departure,
  • Regular Inter-terminal operations
  • Ad hoc traffic such as control authorities and ground handlers

This will provide us with the required information for the Apron activities, the contract will also involve seasonal simulation of all terminals throughout Heathrow. Simulations and reports will be delivered when the following occurs:

  • Seasonal Schedule changes (Summer/Winter)
  • Ground Handler Contract changes
  • Operational implementation of changes to facilities or infrastructure

This long term contract, planned to be in use by June 2014, will encompass many areas of the Airport, including stakeholders, HAL staff and more, making full use of AiQ’s expertise in airport consultancy and capacity planning.
