Implementing ground handling suite of applications

Airports around the world are experiencing heavy traffic, which increases complexity to ensure the safety of customers and ground staff while staying complaint. Airport ground handling services are a mix of multiple vendors/third-party providers, staff, ATC, crew, caterers, baggage control, etc. They form an interdisciplinary organization that needs to work together for smooth airport operations. The synchronous management of distinct entities is crucial to gain maximum effectiveness of airport operations.

AdfarTech offers a flexible, reliable, customizable, and scalable solution for ground-handling operations at airports worldwide. Our ground-handling suite has been implemented across airports, including Heathrow Terminal 5 and Gatwick.

AdfarTech supports the implementation of the ground-handling suite of applications across:

Stands Management/Gate Management

AdfarTech is responsible for supporting and enhancing multiple ground handling operations using the “GroundStar” suite of products by “INFORM Gmbh” . Our gate management system supported the implementation and delivered real-time allocation of stands at Heathrow & Gatwick airports.

An automated process for consolidation of Gate Management Allocator’s actions and creation of an audit tool allows businesses to access critical audit data for managing flight-delays and investigating health & safety issues.

Aircraft Movement

Part of the suite of ‘Inform’ products. Aircraft Movement is responsible for the movement of the aircraft. This application receives flight schedules and updates. Also does the allocation of tasks via Vodafone GPRS onto hand-held devices known as RDT’s (Radio Data Terminal).
