Solterbeck.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 …
