Dubai Airports chooses Quintiq for automated planning solution

Quintiq, a Dassault Systèmes brand and global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), has been selected by Dubai Airports to plan and schedule its fixed resources at Dubai International and Dubai World Central, the company said.

The Quintiq solution will automate the planning process for airport stands, gates, baggage belts and check-in counters to increase overall efficiency, reliability and passenger satisfaction. The solution went live at Dubai International on April 18, with implementation at Dubai World Central to follow soon.

Dubai International is the world´s busiest airport for international passengers. It serves 90 airlines flying to more than 240 destinations across six continents; in 2016, it served 83,654,250 passengers. Dubai World Central, slated to be the region´s airport of the future, launched cargo operations in 2010 and passenger flights in 2013.

Quintiq enables automated planning of all of Dubai International´s fixed resources. From its 260 airport stands to 143 gates, 561 check-in counters to 28 baggage belts, airport planners will have full visibility of resource allocation. They adapt this allocation to fit specific airline preferences and further streamline passenger flow.

Improved passenger flow means that the two airports can now handle increasing traffic without sacrificing passenger experience. A positive experience ensures that passengers and airlines continue to choose the airports for their needs within the region, resulting in increased revenue for the company.

Dubai Airports delivers a world-class experience to its customers by providing safe, secure and environmentally responsible airports. Working in partnership with airlines and stakeholders to drive the growth of Dubai, its vision is to always go further and be the world´s airport company.
