Avinor has revealed it will integrate a new forecasting technology, which will allow the operator to plan and optimise operations across all areas of the airport network.

“To reach our strategic goals of delivering better services more sustainably and more efficiently, we must become a data-driven organisation,” said Abraham Foss, CEO of Avinor.

The machine learning platform will mesh data from multiple third-party systems and IoT devices to accurately automate predictions for multiple operational services and use cases across all time horizons. The programme scope includes providing accurate forecasts and capacity planning for passenger and baggage flow, check-in, security, and border control resource planning. It can also be used to provide predictions for baggage handling, concession footfall, shuttle services and terminal services such as cleaning, passengers with reduced mobility (PRM) assignments and transfers. This will enable the airports to match the availability of services to demand at any time and proactively address any potential issues, improving both the passenger and staff experience while lowering the overall cost to serve.
