AIS’ real time airport apron management system allows for Information to be entered in either ICAO or IATA in local time or UTC.


What is Real Time Apron Management?

The AFIDS system enables information to be entered by airlines or handling agents, usually in IATA format and either in local time or UTC. The information may include the following details:
  • Stand Allocation
  • First Bag Last Bag times
  • Ground Services supplied to the aircraft
  • Entry of De-Icing Fluid
  • Block On/Off Times (If not entered by the airline/handling agent.
Air Traffic Control can view the assigned stand information, allowing them to direct aircraft to the correct stand/air-bridge without having to communicate with apron services by radio or phone, improving airport management efficiency.

The system allows for the input of first and last bag times, which generates statistical data against the published IATA unloading times, useful for apron equipment and manpower planning.

The AFIDS can interface with a specialized stand allocation system to help determine stand allocation. This interface can be two-way, allowing for both entering and importing of updated stand allocation information.
