SITA provides VIGGO with more efficient operations
ACI EUROPE RACE 2019, KRAKOW 22 May 2019 Viggo, the sole ground handler at Eindhoven Airport, has implemented SITA’s latest Airport Management System to manage one of Europe’s fastest-growing regional airports, ensuring timely aircraft turnaround times and a more efficient passenger journey. With flights arriving and departing every few minutes, SITA’s AirportResource Manager allows Viggo to co-ordinate and monitor tasks of the more than 500 employees working across the airport. SITA’s technology also supports all airside ramp activities during the turnaround of low-cost carriers at Eindhoven.
Starting from 2020, SITA’s technology is planned to support operations at Lelystad Airport, the Netherland’s newest regional airport, by offering a scalable management solution which supports Viggo’s multi-skilled resource model.
SITA and Viggo have worked together for many years with Viggo becoming the first licensed Airport Management System delivery consultant for other SITA customers. This means that SITA’s innovative solution can now be combined with Viggo’s operational knowledge and hands-on experience to ensure a successful implementation that provides customers real control and insight over their daily operations.
Sergio Colella, SITA President, Europe said: “For any airport and ground-handler to operate at their maximum efficiency, it is important to have a full picture of what is happening across their operation at all times. Our Airport Management System provides that big picture and it is gratifying to see our technology supporting one of the most efficient airports in Europe.
Last year Viggo welcomed roughly 6.3 million passengers on almost 40,000 flights at Eindhoven Airport.
