AODB (Airport Operational Database)

AODB (Airport Operational Database)

What is Airport Operational Database (AODB)?

Airport operational database (AODB) is the “heart” of airport operations management. Airport Operational Database integrates airport control systems, airport resource allocation, and airport invoicing systems. It works as a central database hub for each flight-related information on a real-time basis.

Benefits of Airport Operational Database (AODB)

Airports are managed by different systems which directly use certain data sets. It is vital to assure accuracy in reference data to guarantee a seamless information flow between various airport management systems. Airport Operational Database overcomes difficulties in managing scattered data stored in the airport ecosystem. Therefore, airports can have insightful information about their operational processes, scheduling and billings through AODB.

The AODB supports the automatic transfer of the seasonal flight schedule data and the generation of daily flight schedules. Therefore, airports can have insightful information about their operational processes, scheduling and billings through this system.

TAV Technologies AODB

TAV Technologies Airport Operational Database (AODB) is a resilient and comprehensive central repository for operational flight data management. It combines efficiency along with guaranteed, consistent and robust operational performance. AODB stores, distributes and manages all seasonal and real-time flight data. Additionally, the system transforms all aeronautical and non-aeronautical services data to accurate financial figures quickly and coherently.

TAV Technologies AODB offers a customized, fast, and intuitive user interface and gathers information from all operations-related systems within the airport, updating changes in real-time. It is a multi-tiered application whose user interface is designed with state-of-the-art web technologies, taking advantage of cross-browser and platform compatibility.

TAV Technologies AODB is configurable depending on the operation and size of the airport. AODB is equally well suited for small, medium-sized, or large airports. According to the needs of the airports, the system can be downsized or tailored.

TAV Technologies AODB Modules


Seasonal Flight Management System (SFMS) Module

This module enables operators to plan the seasonal flight schedules. Flight data is recorded here at the beginning of specific periods (winter/summer tariff flights). Seasonal flight management module works as the main application for the seasonal flight schedules of an airport. TAV Technologies AODB SFMS provides the following functionalities:

  • SFMS manages seasonal flight schedules
  • It generates active flight information from seasonal schedules and distributes them to related systems
  • It imports/exports seasonal flight schedules from/to various formats and files

TAV Technologies AODB SFMS is already integrated with a set of external systems to receive seasonal flight schedules (or SSM messages) automatically. These systems are:

  • DCS
  • Ground Handler Integrations
  • SSIM Integration
  • Sitatex Integration

Active Flight Management System (AFMS) Module

Daily operations are managed through this module. Seasonal data is transferred here to actively manage daily data. Active flight management is the core management application for flights in an airport, providing the following functionalities:

  • AFMS provides fast and easy management and distribution of active (daily) flight information
  • It imports/exports active flight schedules from/to various formats and files
  • It offers management of flight and aircraft movements
  • It offers management of flight status changes
  • It provides öanagement of resource usage of flights and aircrafts
  • It follows one-click user actions approach (resource allocation, data manipulation etc.) on the user interface
  • It auto-updates of flight information on the screen
  • It is equipped with user action auditing and built-in reporting functionalities, plus advanced 3rd party reporting facilities
  • It is useful for a collaborative working environment

Reference Data Management Module

The list of countries, cities, airports, airlines, airport resources is kept within this module.

  • Reference data management is also known as a knowledge base management system (KBMS) in the sector.
  • Reference data managament module is the knowledge base data warehouse for referential and configurations data.
  • It is a management application for reference and configuration data in an airport such as:

Airport, airline codes; IATA, ICAO

City, country codes; IATA, ICAO

Aircraft types, registrations, MTOWs

Resource and equipment types within the airport; counters, aerobridges, lounges, carousels, gates, etc.

Flight-related definitions; flight modes, types, remarks, etc.

Airport setup data

User authorization rules

User authentication parameters

Notification and alert management

Auditing facilities

Airport setup data

Media management

Reporting Services Module

This module enables airport operators to see daily flight lists, delay lists, etc. The module generates reports according to preset metrics.
