Dubai Airports has signed a contract with Quintiq to automate the planning process for airport stands, gates, baggage belts and check-in counters.
The system went live at Dubai International on April 18, with implementation at Dubai World Central to follow soon.
Dubai International is the world’s busiest airport for international passengers, serving 90 airlines flying to more than 240 destinations across six continents. In 2016, it served 83.6 milion passengers
The system enables automated planning of all of Dubai International’s fixed resources. From its 260 airport stands to 143 gates, 561 check-in counters to 28 baggage belts, airport planners will have full visibility of resource allocation. They adapt this allocation to fit specific airline preferences and further streamline passenger flow.
