What is Passenger Flow Management?
Passenger Flow Management (PFM) is a set of solutions used to detect, track, and manage overall passenger traffic through airport touchpoints.
Benefits of Passenger Flow Management
Passenger flow management ensures a seamless passenger flow through the entire boarding and arrival process to maximize airport resources, as well as offer a positive passenger journey.
It is critical to understand how people move throughout the airport in terms of evaluating the current capacity and forecasting the possible negative effects of delays or disruptions. Passenger flow management system is highly beneficial for airport employees to see where travelers move and spend most of their time before their flights. Passenger flow management system also offers a better understanding of passenger behavior for each flight.
TAV Technologies Passenger Flow Management Platform
TAV Technologies Passenger Flow Management Platform uses queue management technology to reduce waiting times at airports, optimize passenger experience, and increase airports revenues.
The platform covers every step of the passenger journey within the airport. These steps include:
- Entrance, Security Checkpoints & Customs
- Check-in Counters
- Bag Drop & Reclaim Areas
- Retail Ares, Food & Beverage Areas and Lounges
- Possible Wet Areas (Toilets, baby care rooms, ex…)
- Taxi & Bus Stations
How TAV Technologies Passenger Flow Management Platform Works
The Passenger Flow Management Platform platform follows the passenger touchpoints through smart cameras and passenger flow is controlled regularly to detect unexpected cases. Airport users can access TAV Technologies Passenger Flow Management Platform’s responsive architecture anywhere at any time on their IOS and Android devices.
The platform follows below passenger flow metrics continuously
- Passenger Count
- Queue Length
- Passenger Wait Times & Predictions
- Passenger Processing Time and Volume
- Counter Allocations
The platform sends automatic notifications every time the predefined KPI threshold is exceeded to control each step of the passenger journey. These notifications are sent to the relevant airport employees directly through the platform alert system and integrated Teams channel.
