  • PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (PSSR) Surface Management Solution Contracted By Southwest Airlines To Improve Turn Times At 35 Airports 0 comments
    Feb 10, 2014 5:34 PM | about stocks: PSSR

    PASSUR Aerospace, a web hosted integrated business intelligence platform that targets key constraints through the entire lifecycle of the flight, announced that Southwest Airlines has contracted for the surface management module of PASSUR Integrated Traffic Management for 35 US airports throughout its network. Southwest made this agreement to expedite turn times, decrease fuel burn, and boost on-time performance.

    The PASSUR Surface Management solution will augment Southwest's efforts to minimize taxi-in and taxi-out times and hasten transition from arrival to departure for an aircraft, both of which will decrease costs and emissions from engine fuel burn, lessen time for passengers spent on the ground in the aircraft, and result in higher "aircraft utilization" (hours an airplane spends in the air flying passengers). The surface solution is a critical part of an integrated, gate-to-gate traffic management platform that optimizes the entire lifecycle of a flight.

    "We're doing everything we can to enhance the customer experience while reducing costs, and PASSUR's contract falls right in line with that strategy," said Dave Wotton, Director of Automation and Support for Southwest Airlines' Operations Coordination Center.

    "PASSUR is focused on providing innovative products to Southwest Airlines that further help to improve the overall traveler experience, while reducing fuel burn and turn times - we're especially proud to include Southwest as part of our network of customers," said Jim Barry, PASSUR's president & CEO.

    Specifically, the PASSUR Surface Management solution facilitates real-time and replayed view into the interplay between aircraft movement and performance. Additionally, the solution delivers analytical tools to understand optimization opportunities within the operation. The cutting edge tool includes high resolution graphical surface flight tracking on a single, integrated display to enable seamless tracking of the surface, terminal airspace, and en route environments, for gate-to-gate tracking and management of flights.

    PASSUR Integrated Traffic Management (PITM) is a web hosted integrated business intelligence platform that targets key constraints through the entire lifecycle of the flight, to optimize fuel costs and emissions, schedule integrity, and the passenger experience. PITM is built on several unique, patented, and patent pending PASSUR capabilities, including a proprietary network of radar surveillance systems installed throughout North America and internationally, integrated aviation databases with extensive historical archives, predictive algorithms, and user-friendly decision support software. PASSUR's solutions enable airlines to predict arrival times more accurately; anticipate pending airport delays; manage congested airways, surface operations and irregular events more effectively; and coordinate with other aviation organizations to help to ensure smooth and predictable operations. PITM provides modules for diversion management, airspace optimization, surface management - including collaborative capacity/demand mitigation for weather disruptions, periods of high-demand, or periods of limited runway availability - arrival and departure optimization, tarmac delay management, and collaborative airport information and field condition reporting.
