How can airport modelling and simulation help you visualise your airport

Within an airport there are many levels of stakeholders with varying degrees of responsibility. Whether it is the operations team, airlines, retailers, airport management or investors; everyone needs to clearly understand how their actions and decisions affect the airport holistically.

We work with saturated and constrained airports throughout the world to create simple and clear capacity models for effective decision making. We model or simulate at the level of detail that is appropriate for the audience, that Big Data can support and we aim to provide appropriate analysis and forecasts based on realistic assumptions and processes.

Why modelling and simulation?

From BuggyOps to a Holistic Passenger and Behaviour Demand Model (Part Two)

Our Terminal Passenger Behaviour Modelling Tool, as explained on our last blog has given us a fascinating insight into airports. We often call them little cities, and this simulation has shown us just how similar they are. We can now gain far more detail into knowing where passengers are and what they are doing, at any given time. This helps us, and our clients, when considering capacity and demand forecasting.
