Athens International Airport has implemented SITA Airport Management, helping stakeholders share key operational data.

Using the service, the airport can share key data with stakeholders such as airlines, government agencies and air navigation service providers, giving them real-time data.

SITA says this will improve efficiency with benefits including seeing when a flight has departed from its destination, giving the airport a more accurate arrival time so ground operations can be arranged more effectively.

The system was used when Athens was hit by snowstorms earlier this year, helping the airport arrange a tracking grid to speed up de-icing of aircraft.

The web-based application helps the airport deploy staff and equipment where it is needed using real-time data, helping it plan activities such as push-back times and improve on-time performance.

Alexandros Aravanis, Chief Operations Officer of Athens International Airport said: “SITA’s Airport Management provides us with all the data we need to better manage every aspect of the airport operation. It allows us to rethink the way we manage the airport. What’s more, is that despite the challenges around Covid, our team working closely with SITA was able to quickly implement this solution, putting us in a strong position to manage the increase in passengers as travel rebounds in the coming months.”
