airport asset tracking



According to Berg Insight*, the global installed base of airport asset tracking systems will reach 0.5 million units by 2024. 

Airports are a center of a rush for both operational assets and passengers and in need of lifelong solutions. Flight delays, human-driven operational problems make the use of Airport Asset Tracking Systems inevitable.

Did you know 70% of all delays to flights are caused by problems due to turnaround of aircrafts at airports? RTLS based tracking systems in airports take this problem away with helping operations with the easiest ways of locating anyone, anything in airports and monitor it.

Despite the current crisis in the aviation industry due to the pandemic, these tracking systems are important not only for airport operational efficiency. They also ensure social distancing and pandemic safety for everyone that goes through. Airport Asset Tracking Systems are critical since tracking across wide airport area both indoor and outdoor is an operational burden if you cannot track them automatically with a monitoring system. Alerts for unexpected situations help operations to create instant solutions for eliminating risks and confusion.
