Airport Data: Make the most of Type-B Message data

Counter at the gate. (C) HeikoR - Fotolia.comSolterbeck.net launches Floral Hall – an Intranet based tool to parse Type-B operational messages. This suite enables an airport to interpret automatically several kinds of operational messages like Load Message (LDM), Movement (MVT), Passenger Transfer Message (PTM) or inbound connection list. New is the Passenger Assistance List (PAL/CAL) for asking at transfer airports for assistance passenger with reduced mobility.

Instead of cooking down the appropriate flight event data by a black box, Floral Hall is based on XML formated Regular Expressions. Airline customers and the airport can find so a mutual understanding on the information, on which data billing and planning will later be relying on.

Accurate and timely data consolidation enables better service and more revenue at airports

Our experiences as consultant and software developer with European, Mid East and Asian airports show that in particular the level of detail, accuracy and reliability of data for billing, marketing and operations at airports appear to be better:

  • Invoices to airlines can be made faster and easier
  • Billing Complaints from Airlines go to zero
  • Easy and timely statistics
  • Potential for new routes or the optimization of existing routes through targeted programs (aiming to increase pax charges)
  • Reliable and timely data for logistical purposes at boarding or transfer points

In all these considerations, it generally does not matter where the airport is located, whether large or small, whether specializing in low-cost airlines or not, whether the focus is directed to air freight or passenger traffic.

Enhancing data control and reducing development costs

Floral Hall is for airports, which want to feed operational databases with additional information from airline or agent sources. Also for software companies, which want to add their portfolio products with a parsing environment. Solterbeck.net provides its suite as a blue print. Getting all sources and knowledge transfer our customers can have full control over the integration into their IT landscape.

Please refer to our Slideshare presentation. Here we lay down the architecture, the services and our price model.

Achieving the benefits with “Floral Hall” its introduction (implementation, developing interfaces, setting up the infrastructure, testing and training) lasts only three month. For further questions, please get in touch with us here …

How well Airlines do their Twitter Job?

In continuation of our recent article on “How different are Airlines and Airports in communicating through Twitter” today came to us a Twitter post under our eyes. Samatha Shankman of the online portal Skift presented in a web article the question: How Well Do Airlines Deal With Customers’ Twitter Requests?

The Skift editor stated: “A recent analysis of 40,000 tweets sent by 26 brands reveals that some companies are great at responding to customers’ needs while others direct their requests to email or phone numbers. Airlines are among the best brands on Twitter at answering customers without deflecting them to more traditional channels.”

Skift called the American Airlines as an example. In fact, this company is also at the lace of our Twittairport statistics on the carrier companies with the highest degree of interaction.

How different are Airlines and Airports in communicating through Twitter?

Based on October 2013 data we found out, that a small majority of the Top Airport Twitter Poster interact with community. With about 95% or 96% of all posted Tweets @schiphol and @Airport_FRA head the list of the most interactive Twittairports. Other airports prefered a kind of storytelling or commercial information.

However, the airlines put almost exclusively on interaction. For them, taking care to acute customer needs is in the foreground. Airlines are usually the contractor for passengers. The airport creates an experience for them, the other visitors, staff, crews and shopping clientele.

Usually Interaction means – according the Twitter Glossary – all ways a user has interacted with other accounts, like adding them to a list, sending them a @reply, marking one of their Tweets as a Favorite, retweeting one of theirTweets. Preliminary in our Twittairport scope we join replies and retweets to a interaction. Favorites will come soon.
