Airport Handling Agent System - Information entered by an airline or handling agent will normally be in IATA format in local time or UTC.


What is Handling Agent System?

The AFIDS allows for information to be entered by airlines or handling agents, typically in IATA format and in local or UTC time. The information may include the following details:
  • Block On/Off Times
  • Schedule Revisions
  • Passenger and Freight Information
  • Seasonal Schedule Information
  • Carousel Opening and Closing
  • Check-In Desk Opening and Closing
The entered information can be used to generate accurate invoices and to trigger resources, such as check-in desks and gates opening and closing. This subsequently prompts the FIDSnet system to update the relevant displays.
