Aircraft are only valuable to an airline when they are wheels up, delivering passengers and freight to their destinations, safely and on time. The airport’s role is to minimize the time aircraft spend on the ground. By closely integrating tower, airfield and gate systems, ADB SAFEGATE solutions enable all parts of an airport to work together as one to increase airport performance, from approach to departure. We call this Airport Performance. Integrated tower, airfield and gate systems support the highest operational efficiency to minimize aircraft time on the ground. This, in turn leads to increased airport capacity with existing airport infrastructure, while the highest safety is maintained at all times. To understand how this can all be achieved through integration, let’s follow an airliner from approach to departure. At every stage of the process, integrated systems can achieve time savings to reduce the total amount of time aircraft spend on the ground, as well as improve the efficiency of airport resources to create cost reductions. Of course, the average savings will vary from airport to airport and will be affected by environmental conditions. For example, a follow-the-greens system will typically save much more taxiing time in poor weather than in good visibility.
