Veovo, OneAlpha Partner To Streamline Slot Approvals

Veovo and OneAlpha, an airport slot management and capacity planning company, have partnered to give operators the ability to streamline the slot approval process while maximising the use of runway, apron and terminal capacity and resources.

The integration of OneAlpha’s tools with Veovo’s AODB and Resource Management System removes system and communication barriers between airlines and airport slot and planning teams for faster, more accurate decision-making in dynamic-operating environments.

OneAlpha’s cloud-based slot management tool automates the slot request-to-approval process from one central tool, checking requests against runway, apron and terminal capacity and saving time for slot coordinators and airport management.

Once the slot is confirmed, the integration with the resource management tool in Veovo’s Intelligent Airport Platform enables a seamless handover to strategic planners to optimize resource planning in and outside the terminal, including stands, gates, counters, and baggage belts. Last minute, schedule change requests can also be quickly evaluated and automatically integrated into the tactical planning horizon.

The partnership offers the additional benefits of supporting long-term planning and regulatory reporting, enabling operators to forecast the impact of infrastructure improvement or maintenance works on capacity, enhancing operational and commercial decision-making, while also simplifying regulatory reporting and fine-tuning future slot allocations in a continual improvement cycle.

“At Veovo, we continue to seek smarter ways to use new technologies and collaborate with partners with the goal of making airport operations more efficient,” said James Williamson, CEO of Veovo. The strategic partnership with OneAlpha is an important step forward in removing many manual airport processes to facilitate better, faster operational decision-making across all time horizons, from slot management and capacity planning to the day of operations.”
