BSCA boosts airport management capability

Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) and EMMA Systems have partnered to configure, test and commission a new airport operations management platform.

EMMA Systems’ platform – which will have an A-CDM functionality – will help Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) increase the predictability of operations, reduce delays, conserve fuel and reduce operational costs.

Using artificial intelligence, the platform analyses current and past traffic flows to accurately predict key timestamps and upcoming operational hindrances, improving operational predictability. With traffic gradually increasing, the airport hopes to soon see traffic ramping up to pre-COVID levels. It is hoped the new platform will allow BSCA to improve the passenger experience and put the airport in a better position to manage an increase in passenger numbers.

Philippe Verdonck, CEO at Brussels South Charleroi Airport, said: “We look forward to working closely with EMMA Systems to develop a best-in-class A-CDM approach and leverage the power of EMMA’s technology towards reaching new levels of efficiency and sustainability within our operations.”
