AirportGRF, a runway monitoring platform, has been developed for Torino Airport by its operator, SAGAT (Società Azionaria Gestione Aeroporto Torino).

The innovative system, designed to ensure safe airport operations during adverse weather conditions, is the first to be conceived and designed by an airport for other airports and will be made available to air transport professionals.

AirportGRF shares information on the runway surface condition with air traffic controllers, pilots, airlines, airfield safety operators and flight coordinators in case of weather precipitation, and complies with EASA and ICAO regulations, which came into force in Europe in August 2021 and were applied globally from November 2021. These regulations require airport operators to constantly monitor, report and share information on runway conditions in order to quickly identify any critical issues.

It is the only tool on the market to analyse and control the whole cycle of activities, from runway inspections to issuance of aeronautical reports, and performs safety analysis regarding GRF implementation. Twenty-nine Italian and international airports are currently using Torino's GRF solution: Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo, Catania, Naples, Palermo, Milan Linate, Bologna, Pisa, Lamezia Terme, Alghero, Olbia, Florence, Pescara, Trieste, Lampedusa, Reggio Calabria, Crotone, Cuneo, Bolzano, Grosseto, Aosta and Albenga, as well as London Heathrow, Ljubljana (Slovenia), Zagreb (Croatia), Tirana and Kukës (Albania) and Amman (Jordan).
