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?

When small changes can make a big difference to your airport

When it comes to releasing capacity and improving passenger flow in your airport, smaller changes can often make a huge impact on your operational effectiveness and revenue.

AiQ helps constrained and saturated airports worldwide face challenges through smart solutions and holistic approaches. Minor changes in technology, check-in and automation can make a big difference at peak hour to security and emigration.

Building your way out of a problem is not always the solution. Your airport needs to be smarter.

How can you find capacity in constrained and saturated airports?

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?

Effective Asset Replacement for Airports

Asset replacement is an essential and continuous task for airports to remain secure and efficient. Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) replacement has been driven by new security standards with ECAC Standard 3 requiring much of the existing screening equipment to be replaced. An increase in demand for Early Bags Storage (EBS) may force the requirement to upgrade for increased efficiency and capacity. Whilst adopting new technologies for check-in and baggage systems have created the need to replace older equipment and updated processes. Read More »
