Sensis Corporation has announced that Continental Airlines will subscribe to its Aerobahn web-based service for Newark Liberty International Airport to enable more efficient management of aircraft traffic flows, particularly during periods of abnormal delay.
Aerobahn collects a variety of operational flight data in real-time, including surveillance data from the Sensis multistatic dependent system (MDS), and transforms the data into valuable information that will enable Continental and other Newark stakeholders to better manage airport operations. In addition, Aerobahn will allow users to conduct comprehensive post-event analysis to accurately measure and improve the performance of the operation.
In addition to the Newark and Houston ramp controllers, Aerobahn will be used by Continental’s system operations co-ordination center located at the corporate offices in Houston, Texas. Continental will use Aerobahn TaxiView, OpsView and QuickView to support timely, collaborative decision making at Newark.
Mark Moran, executive vice president of operations at Continental Airlines, said: Continental strives to deliver an industry leading product that is safe, clean, and reliable. Aerobahn will help Continental to achieve these goals by providing our employees with technology that enables them to proactively manage the operation, improving the travel experience.
Tony Lo Brutto, vice president and general manager of Sensis air traffic systems, said: Aerobahn provides airlines and airport operators with the operational information they need to ensure a high level of efficiency and customer care. With Aerobahn, Continental Airlines can better prepare for irregular operations and respond to unplanned events, supporting their corporate commitment to provide an exceptional customer experience.
