On 26 February 2020, International Airport Review and Honeywell will present how developments in IoT technologies can help airports cater for passengers’ demands.

Honeywell uses IoT technology

With nine billion passengers travelling every year and the outlook of doubling that number by 2040, many airports are running out of capacity and facing congestion. If we add to that a growing air cargo volume, capacity is an issue airports need to tackle today.

In order to do that, airports can either invest in additional infrastructure or rely on technology to efficiently increase the throughput of their aircraft and passengers.

Conventional airport technology has often struggled to keep up. When aging platforms and siloed systems are slow to cycle aircraft, then delays, wasted fuel and other costs can add up quickly.

Digital transformation is reshaping the airport industry. Fuelled by developments in the Internet of Things (IoT), new technologies help airports to stay focused on their core mission: Flying passengers safely and on time – while optimising their operations and enabling great travel experiences.

IoT-driven technologies can help predict passenger flows, draw and analyse data across the airport systems while new software solutions enhance safety, security and efficient airport management.

Honeywell experts and International Airport Review invite you to join a session that will look at the impact of IoT to improve specific airport operations such as air traffic control, maintenance and aircraft.

Honeywell NAVITAS Suite of Solutions brings air traffic management and airport operations to the next level by integrating air and ground traffic control with maintenance operations so airports can more easily accommodate growing air traffic while promoting safety and on-time performance.

Powered by IoT connectivity and developed to be fully compliant with cyber-security standards, the technology features modules that collect and organise real-time data to show a birds-eye view into activity, across air traffic control, maintenance and aircraft, improving awareness and predictability throughout airports.

Raghu Seelamonthula, Senior Manager, Honeywell Airports Business, commented: “As we dive deeper into the benefits of connected airport technology, you will understand how to embrace the difficult balance of improving safety and efficiency of airport operations, which will allow you to take on your airport challenges more effectively. Lastly, you will be able to gain insights from the experts at Honeywell who have hands-on experience creating smarter and more connected airports around the world for hundreds of customers.”
