In the aviation industry, airlines and airports work to provide a seamless travel experience for the passenger, intertwining their operations to be optimally efficient, cost effective, safe and customer friendly.

At Collins Aerospace, we know the “ins and outs” of airport passenger processing because we design, install and maintain integrated solutions for airport operations. With more than 80 years of expertise supporting critical aviation needs, we understand the complex ecosystem of airlines and airports, and offer products and services to optimize airport operations for passengers, airports and airlines alike.

Airport Database

Our highly trusted ARINC Airport Database (AirDB) system warehouses and distributes data throughout the airport to facilitate operational flow and ease passenger management. Airport and airline personnel can quickly and easily access ARINC AirDB from any terminal on a single web-based interface, getting flight schedules and details, gate, belt and desk assignments, as well as any historical information needed.


Resource Management

Efficiency at the gate is crucial to cost-effective operations and profitability. We designed the ARINC AirPlan resource management tool to help alleviate aircraft congestion and achieve higher on-time departure and arrival rates. The intelligent control system allows airport managers to analyze the cause of delays, plan ahead and improve daily scheduling - helping determine the most time-efficient usage of aircraft, gates and stands.

Flight Information Display (FIDS)

Whether you want to keep people moving, create dwell time or steer traffic to key revenue opportunities, our ARINC AirVue FIDS platform is configurable and scalable for any size airport, concessionaire or airport-related business. It supports all aspects of information presentation, from data delivery and format design, to device management and display scheduling.
