Focusing on hub optimization, operational resilience, & on time performance to support Aeromexico's growth plans
STAMFORD, Connecticut, Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PASSUR® Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR), a global leader in digital operational excellence, announced it has contracted with Aeromexico for implementation of PASSUR's main suite of traffic management optimization capabilities – part of Aeromexico's long-term strategic investments in the growth of its primary hub operation.
Aeromexico's primary objectives are to increase the capacity of Mexico City International Airport (MEX) to accommodate growth while reducing delays and congestion, increasing customer satisfaction, and reducing operating costs, to achieve Improved On Time Performance/Punctuality; Schedule Integrity; Capacity Growth; and Higher Aircraft Utilization.
PASSUR will be implementing many of the core elements of its PASSUR Integrated Traffic Management (PITM) platform, adapted from its original US configuration, for customers in Canada, Western Europe, and now Latin America. Main areas of PASSUR capabilities (software, concepts of operation, best practices training) to be provided include:
- Advanced flight trajectory prediction
- Airport capacity enhancement
- Demand and capacity forecasting tools
- Collaborative airport surface flow management programs
"Ensuring predictable, reliable service in and out of Mexico City International Airport is an essential requirement toward realizing our goal of maintaining and growing Aeromexico's position as a dominant hemispheric transfer hub and carrier," said Alejandro Contreras Campos, Senior Vice President Mexico City International Airport for Aeromexico. "We are making this investment in PASSUR because we believe we must lead innovation – in collaboration with our main stakeholders – to ensure our airline and primary hub lead in global performance and competitiveness."
"PASSUR welcomes Aeromexico as our first business partner in Latin America, reflecting our strong investment in the global application of PASSUR solutions," said Niels Steenstrup, Chief Commercial Officer, PASSUR Aerospace. "We anticipate a strong partnership built around providing major, measurable gains in operational, customer service, and financial performance to Aeromexico and its stakeholders."
PASSUR's solutions are delivered on a web-hosted, common operating platform, and will include participation of all key MEX stakeholders, including SENEAM (Mexico's Air Navigation Service Provider/ATC) and AICM (Aeropuerto Internacional de la Cuidad México, the airport operator). The PASSUR solutions will be a core element of the eventual planned deployment of an Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) system at MEX.
PASSUR's mission is to grow global aviation capacity to meet current and future demand for air travel while minimizing the need for costly infrastructure investments. We can achieve these objectives by providing a digital, collaborative platform where airlines, airports, and Air Navigation Service Providers work together to optimize their internal operations while also solving problems that can only be solved by sharing data and information on a common platform with all key stakeholders. PASSUR analytics extract meaningful information from data to predict, manage, and remove constraints on the surface and in the air.
With the addition of Aeromexico, PASSUR now provides its platform to three of the major partners in the SkyTeam alliance – Delta Air Lines, Air France, and Aeromexico – creating new opportunities for cross-alliance efficiencies, growth, and operational excellence.
