Veovo has teamed up with airport slot management and capacity planning company, OneAlpha, to give airport operators the ability to streamline the slot approval process, while maximising the use of runway, apron and terminal capacity and resources.
The collaboration supports OneAlpha’s vision to share its platform with the world’s best airports, while the integration of its tools with Veovo’s AODB and Resource Management System removes system and communication barriers between airlines and airport slot and planning teams for faster, more accurate decision-making in dynamic-operating environments.
Carl Jones, CEO of OneAlpha said: “We’re delighted to partner with Veovo to make it even easier for airports to access our next-generation slot coordination and airport capacity technology through Veovo’s software portfolio. By bringing our tools together, we can offer operators and their partners greater confidence and reliability in their planning by ensuring schedule demands always match capacity for smoother planning and operations.”
OneAlpha’s cloud-based slot management tool automates the slot request-to-approval process from one central tool, checking requests against runway, apron and terminal capacity and saves time for slot coordinators and management teams. Once the slot has been confirmed, the integration with Veovo’s powerful resource management tool enables a seamless handover to strategic planners to optimise resource planning in and outside the terminal, including stands, gates, counters and baggage belts.
Additional benefits to the partnership include support for long-term planning and regulatory reporting. OneAlpha’s tool allows operators to forecast the impact of infrastructure improvement or maintenance works on capacity, enhancing operational and commercial decision-making. What’s more, with resource usage data fed from Veovo’s RMS fed back into the slot planning process, airports can simplify regulatory reporting and fine-tune future slot allocations.
“The strategic partnership with OneAlpha is an important step forward in removing many manual airport processes to facilitate better, faster operational decision-making across all time horizons, from slot management and capacity planning to the day of operations,” concluded James Williamons, CEO, Veovo.
