Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority Contracts With PASSUR Aerospace

Will Implement PASSUR's Surface And Gate Optimization Solution

PASSUR Aerospace has contracted with the Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority (GARAA), the sponsor of the Asheville Regional Airport (AVL), to provide gate sequencing and airport collaboration solutions on its Ariva platform. PASSUR's information sharing automated workflow  solution is designed to increase traffic flows and capacity, and reduce delays and congestion, at one of the region's fastest growing airports.

Asheville Regional Airport is currently completing Phase 4 of a multi-year airfield redevelopment project that includes a replacement runway and additional taxiway. With seven gates in use, AVL offers 60+ direct flights daily to and from 22 destinations, including six international hubs, and is served by six airlines. AVL ranks in the top five fastest growing regional airports in the US, and is the regional hub airport for western North Carolina, facilitating regional economic growth through improved aviation operations.

Incorporation of PASSUR's Ariva solution provides a common operating platform to facilitate communication, information sharing, and collaborative workflow among all key stakeholders – airlines, airport, and the ANSP – resulting in prioritization of high value flights, reduced number of aircraft waiting for gates, and efficiently sequenced arrivals and departures to and from gate assignments.

"AVL's growth in the past few years has been unprecedented and significant," said Lew Bleiweis, A.A.E., Executive Director of the Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority. "With this growth comes operational challenges that require increased sophistication and automation in our management of aircraft parking, gate utilization and movements on the airfield. The PASSUR gate sequencing solution is an excellent way to incorporate smart technology to improve efficiency at AVL."

PASSUR's gate sequencing capability is highly flexible and configurable, allowing smaller airports that face many of the same core operational challenges as larger airports but on a different operational scale, to introduce cost-effective advanced automation and industry best practices. Additionally, the PASSUR solution delivers new efficiencies at a fraction of the cost of major capital investments, by ensuring that:

  • Arriving aircraft are promptly assigned a gate
  • All available airport resources are being optimized
  • Passengers experience a quick and seamless travel experience

"Asheville Regional Airport is a dynamic, customer focused airport with significant growth and visionary leadership. PASSUR is honored to be selected as a strategic partner to help Asheville maximize gate efficiency, operational capacity, and collaboration across the airport as it continues to expand air service offerings," said Douglas Hofsass, Senior Vice President of Global Airports and Business Aviation.
