Airport operations solutions

In preparation for the influx of passengers and aircraft arrivals for the 2016 Olympic games Rio de Janeiro’s main airport, Galeão-Tom Jobim International Airport has implemented a number of Rockwell Collins’ solutions.

The solutions, which will enhance passenger handling and airport operations, are a part of a $2 billion renovation and expansion program that will not only cope with the expected traffic surges, but accounts for future rowth of the arport as well.

“Beyond the games, RIOgaleão has ambitious growth plans, with a goal of operating at a capacity of 37.5 million passengers per year—a significant increase from its current capacity,” said Augusto de Macedo Santos, head of sales, Latin America. “Brazil is a rapidly growing market and this marks yet another key milestone in our commitment to invest and grow our business in the country.”

Key areas of improvement were aircraft congestion and turnaround, on time departure and arrival rates and digital signage throughout the airport.

Amongst the solutions deployed to focus on this were:

  • ARINC AirDB™
  • ARINC AirVue™
  • ARINC AirPlan
  • ARINC VeriPax™
  • ARINC AviNet® Airport

In addition to the installation and integration of these products Rockwell Collins’ airport systems management organization, ARINC Managed Services, is responsible for the on-site maintenance and support of all the systems.

“The Galeão Airport is the gateway to our country, and it’s important that we provide the best possible experience for travelers attending one of the world’s premier sporting events,” said Herlichy Bastos, operations director at RIOgaleão. “The ARINC airport systems allow us to more effectively manage airline ground activities—from the moment a plane lands on the runway until it takes off again. Optimizing our airport infrastructure is enabling us to handle more planes and manage more airlines more effectively.”

About RIOgaleão

RIOgaleão is composed of Odebrecht TransPort, Changi Airports International and Infraero. The concession-holder took over the operation in August 2014. Until the end of this period, RIOgaleão will invest R$ 5 billion in the airport – around R$ 2 billion being invested until 2016. The improvements and works of infrastructure will include passengers terminals, airport apron, parking lots and hotels. Many improvements are already being implemented, such as bilingual service, opening of new commercial establishments, creation of new routes, installation of automatic gates and security cameras in parking lots, improvement in the cleaning of terminals, bathrooms and baby changing facilities; besides free Wi-Fi and selective waste collection system.
