STAMFORD, Conn. - PASSUR Aerospace, Inc. (OTC: PSSR.PK) announced today that Alaska Airlines has contracted for PASSUR Integrated Traffic Management (PITM) Surface Management solution for five cities, for both Alaska Airlines and its subsidiary, Horizon Air.
The PITM Surface Management solution monitors, predicts, and analyzes the movement of aircraft in the movement and non-movement areas, and is part of a broader suite of solutions that includes modules for diversion management, airspace optimization, tarmac delay management, as well as collaborative airport information and field condition reporting.
"Alaska Airlines is known for its exceptional service and reliability, and we're delighted to be able to support that reputation through our solutions," said Jim Barry, PASSUR's President and CEO. "Our common operating platform, linking key cities, and both the mainline and regional operations, will provide Alaska Airlines with an enhanced level of control over its financial, customer service, and environmental costs."
PASSUR Surface Management includes surface flight tracking on a single, integrated display that enables seamless tracking of the surface, terminal airspace, and en route environments on one screen, for gate-to-gate tracking and management of flights.
PITM is a web-hosted integrated business intelligence platform that targets key constraints through the entire lifecycle of the flight, to optimize fuel costs and emissions, schedule integrity, and the passenger experience.
PITM is built on several unique, patented, and patent-pending PASSUR capabilities, including a proprietary network of radar surveillance systems installed throughout North America and internationally, integrated aviation databases with extensive historical archives, predictive analytical algorithms, and user-friendly decision support software. PASSUR's solutions enable airlines to predict arrival times more accurately, anticipate pending airport delays, manage congested airways, surface operations and irregular events more effectively, and coordinate with other aviation organizations to help to ensure smooth and predictable operations.
