OneAlpha and Veovo partner to optimise airport slots, capacity and resources
OneAlpha, the airport slot coordination and capacity management technology company, has formed a global strategic partnership with Veovo, a global leader in Airport Operations, Revenue Management and Passenger Flow solutions, giving operators the ability to streamline the slot approval process while maximising the use of runway, apron and terminal capacity and resources.
The integration of OneAlpha’s tools with Veovo’s AODB and Resource Management System removes system and communication barriers between airlines and airport slot and planning teams for faster, more accurate decision-making in dynamic-operating environments.
The partnership supports OneAlpha’s vision to share its platform with the world’s best airports. Several of Veovo’s 120+ customers are already benefiting from the alliance.
OneAlpha’s cloud-based slot management tool automates the slot request-to-approval process from one central tool, checking requests against runway, apron and terminal capacity and saving time for slot coordinators and airport management. Once the slot is confirmed, the integration with Veovo’s powerful resource management tool enables a seamless handover to strategic planners to optimise resource planning in and outside the terminal, including stands, gates, counters and baggage belts. Future, and often last minute, schedule change requests can also be quickly evaluated and automatically integrated into the tactical planning horizon, freeing up experts to focus only on the most complex scenarios.
Carl Jones, CEO of OneAlpha said: “We’re delighted to partner with Veovo to make it even easier for airports to access our next generation slot coordination and airport capacity technology through Veovo’s software portfolio. By bringing our tools together, we can offer operators and their partners greater confidence and reliability in their planning by ensuring schedule demands always match airport capacity for smoother planning and operations.”
The partnership offers the additional benefits of supporting long-term planning and regulatory reporting. OneAlpha’ s tool allows operators to forecast the impact of infrastructure improvement or maintenance works on capacity, enhancing operational and commercial decision-making. And, with resource usage data from Veovo’s RMS fed back into the slot planning process, airports can simplify regulatory reporting as well as fine-tune future slot allocations – in a continual cycle of improvement.
James Williamson, CEO of Veovo added: “At Veovo we continue to seek smarter ways to use new technologies and collaborate with partners with the goal of making airport operations more efficient. The strategic partnership with OneAlpha is an important step forward in removing many manual airport processes to facilitate better, faster operational decision-making across all time horizons, from slot management and capacity planning to the day of operations.”
