Veovo and OneAlpha partner to optimise airport slots, capacity, and resources
This partnership will help airports to save time working through the complexity of matching airline slot requests with airport capacity and getting the most out of their assets.
(Melbourne, Australia & London, United Kingdom – 15. Nov 2022) – Veovo has formed a global strategic partnership with OneAlpha, an airport slot management and capacity planning company, 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 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 and fine-tune future slot allocations – in a continual improvement cycle.
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.”
“Our partnership with Veovo has brought us significant operational advantages.”
“The sharing of real-time operation information across all A-CDM partners has created efficiencies throughout our business, leading to more effective and smart decision making.”
“Veovo gives us real-time insights into our operations and resources, allowing us to reduce delays and lower service costs”.
“Veovo provide us with real-time decision-making on where our resources are needed. We are most excited about the ability the system gives our teams to respond much quicker to unplanned events.”
