“I look forward to sharing our software platform with the world’s slot coordinators and airports”, Carl said. “Now more than ever, being nimble and having the ability to respond to the constantly changing operating environment and airline schedules is critical. Having lived it first-hand, I know the importance of putting timely information in the hands of slot coordinators and airport management alike to work through the complexities of each schedule, and get the most out of airport assets. We understand this is critical in a normal operating environment, it’s even more critical for the complexities of a COVID-19 recovery operating environment.”

Sonia Burman, CEO, OneAlpha, added: “With the further enhancements to our already industry leading software platform, most recently the introduction of historics, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Carl to the team. His extensive global experience and network, understanding of capacity management will be invaluable in helping us share our software solution with airports at a critical time in the COVID-19 recovery”
