The world’s aircraft fleet will more than double in the next 20 years, with almost 20,000 additional aircrafts expected to be put into operation each day. Due to this fleet growth, the demand for fuel and the absolute fuel consumption of the air traffic segment will increase dramatically. With higher overall fuel consumption, emissions will also grow in the near future. Many airports are already operating at their capacity limits and are not able to handle more flight movements without reciprocal effects and efficiency losses. This leads to severe capacity bottlenecks within aircraft operations, which in turn result in delays, huge losses in operational efficiency, and high costs relating to passenger compensation rights. GNSS technology, together with augmentation systems like EGNOS, facilitates the tracking of aircrafts. Aeroficial Intelligence is making use of this data by analysing air traffic data and predicting future situations, delays, and related operational processes at and around airports. With this ability, operational efficiency and the situational awareness of operations departments can be increased dramatically.
