The transformation of the airport’s operational management systems will fast-track its ability to scale up operations efficiently when international and domestic travel fully resumes.
Perth Airport in Western Australia has deployed a new operational system that will help streamline airline and ground handler flight management processes.
In partnership with Veovo, a Gentrack Group (GTK) company, the project focused on improving operational performance and agility by using trusted data, analytics and intelligent automation to coordinate decision-making across the airport for every flight, every day.
Perth Airport chief operating officer Scott Woodward said that the transformation of its operational management systems would fast-track the airport’s ability to scale up its operations efficiently when international and domestic travel fully resumes.
“The new system will provide our airline partners and their handlers seamless and timely information, real-time flight updates, and the opportunity for increased collaboration between the airport and its users,” said Scott Woodward, chief operating officer, Perth Airport.
“And, with the current volatility, the need to deliver safe and reliable conditions for our airline partners to operate will be critical as the aviation industry recovers from the severe impacts of the pandemic.”
The Veovo Intelligent Airport platform connects and analyses data spanning flights, airside and landside activities – to provide clarity in real-time for the airport, its aviation partners and its passengers.
Decision support and optimisation tools enable the airport to build robust resourcing plans and proactively flex to handle irregular operations. This agility leads to improved resilience, more efficient gate allocations and a more predictable experience for customers, Veovo claims.

Perth Airport reports it has been able to undertake this complex upgrade with Veovo and transition to the new system seamlessly, and with no unplanned disruptions to critical airport services.
“We’re delighted that Perth Airport has partnered with Veovo to undertake one of the industry’s most significant digital transformations at such a critically-important time,” added James Williamson, CEO of Veovo.
“While the whole industry rethinks its approach to operational planning, Perth Airport is leading the way on improving efficiency and the customer experience in the new age of travel.”
Veovo is headquartered in London, UK, with more than 110 airport customers supported by teams in the US, New Zealand, and Denmark.
