Aeroflot has implemented aviation IT provider
SITA’s airport management system for its operations across the
three terminals of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport.
The system, which also manages resources
for its SkyTeam partners, is now in use in Terminal 1 and 2 will
be extended to Terminal 3 when it opens later this year.
The three year deal includes the provision of SITA’s
AirportResource Manager, which handles slot, stand, gate, baggage
carousel and check-in counter management and SITA’s
AirportHandling Manager, which covers mobile resource management,
remote access, shift, roster and job allocations.
Konsantin Plotnikov, Head of Mission Control Center, Aeroflot
said, “Aeroflot needed a system that could handle the particular
complexities we face at Sheremetyevo where we have three terminals
operated by different management companies and we also have to
take into consideration our Skyteam partners’ requirements.
“With SITA’s AirportResource Manager we can reduce the
time required for resource planning across our 99 check-in desks,
52 departure gates and nine baggage carousels, and have quick
operations analysis which allows us to manage last-minute flight
accounts for approximately 45% of international traffic
and 12.5% of domestic traffic in Russia and operates
flights to 95 destinations in 48 countries from its hub at Sheremetyevo International.
In 2008, the airport had 15.2 million
passengers and catered for 60% of Russia’s international flights.
The new Terminal Three serves anchor tenant Aeroflot, and other
members of the SkyTeam Alliance including Alitalia, Air France,
Delta, KLM and Korean Air and handles 3,800 passengers per hour.
