JFKIAT, operator of T4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport, has deployed Assaia International’s ApronAI Turnaround Control solution.

The solution will provide real-time alerts in instances of deviation from standard operating procedures. This will help to identify and prevent situations potentially leading to delays or incidents. It will also provide JFKIAT with valuable insights that will be shared with airline partners and ground handlers.

Computer vision will capture turnaround activities in real time using video streams and will act as a single source of operational data for the terminal.

JFKIAT is implementing the system as its latest move to integrate Terminal 4’s environmentally friendly culture across its airside operations. The system will also identify excessive usage of the auxiliary power unit (APU) in a push to lower CO2 emissions and improve air quality and noise levels.

Roel Huinink, president and CEO of JFKIAT, said: “We are pleased to partner with Assaia to implement the ApronAI Turnaround Control solution at T4. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued to transform T4's digital ecosystem with enhanced technologies, with a focus on improving the passenger experience.

“This new solution will not only optimise operations and our work with our business partners but will also help us to ensure a first-class customer experience at T4.”
