With global passenger footfall expected to double by 2037, it has never been more important to utilise kerbside to airspace consulting, modelling, and forecasting to help you solve the most complex airport capacity planning challenges.
At AiQ we can identify efficiencies and solve growing challenges across whole operations – from passengers and baggage to transit vehicles, ground support equipment and flights – kerbside to airside, we’re with you all the way.
This data can be used to create airport capacity assessments that have the power to future-proof airports by evaluating just how efficiently the equipment, resources and space is used. By collating analytics from kerbside all the way through to airspace, this integrated and holistic approach allows clients to visualise and realise ‘unseen’ capacity, and identify improvements.

Our experienced team of consultants, engineers, physicists and mathematicians work with architects throughout the many stages of conception, masterplanning, planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations when it comes to designing for airports.
Known as the RIBA Plan of Work, it’s the standard structure in which a project goes from client briefing and inception through to when the building is in use and the feedback stage. We employ different techniques at different times in order to work with architects, airports and contractors successfully, and have done so for many airports worldwide. Read More »
Airports increasingly utilise common-use passenger processing systems (CUPPS) for efficiency and ease of use, for employees and passengers. These systems involve using the same equipment regardless of airline, whereas historically each airline would have its own designated check-in desks and technical systems. With common use equipment, some (or all) airlines share this equipment. CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing Systems) was developed as a global standard to progress the use of this technology.
In our work with constrained airports worldwide, we increasingly recommend common use systems to improve efficiency and increase capacity, using the CUPPS standard to ensure integrity and useability.

Adrian Todd, our CEO, explores how the team at AiQ Consulting uses technology, simulations and thinking holistically to create smart airports and realise capacity worldwide.
Airports become constrained in one or two or all three areas – runway, stands and terminal – because the nature of the industry is to expand to use every available space. Even if you solve your capacity problems today, in a few years you will find yourself in a similar position. So how can you find, and keep finding, capacity in your airport?
