Quantum Aviation Solutions will provide a complete Fleet Management Solution to SAI, Servicios Aeroportuarios Integrados’s Motorized and Unmotorized Ground Handling Equipment in Colombia

Servicios Aeroportuarios Integrados Ground Handling (SAI) has awarded Quantum Aviation Solution with a contract to install Quantum’s advanced fleet management solution on 400 motorized and 600 unmotorized assets of its fleet of ground support equipment at the Bogota Airport.

After testing the system in a Proof of Concept SAI selected Quantum.

“Using the solution from Quantum allows us to reduce our operational cost, increase safety and significantly improve the efficiency on the ramp. We were impressed by how flexible the Quantum system is, and how adaptable to our specific business requirements. We consider this relationship with Quantum as a close partnership and expect strong support from Quantum for our planned growth in Colombia and Latin America” says Carlos Monzon, CEO of SAI.

SAI will benefit from the Quantum’s product functionality that includes planning, scheduling, tracking and controlling all motorized and non-motorized equipment at the airport ramp. In addition, it provides detailed information on engine parameters supporting predictive maintenance and reducing costs, and engagement status supporting the operational processes at the ramp and significantly reducing cost. Henry Molano, Operations Director, comments on SAI’s objective: “We want to take care of our clients – their fleet, passengers and their luggage – with a punctual, safe and reliable service, making optimal use of our resources. We are implementing Quantum in our largest station in this first stage, but our vision is to implement it in all the stations in which we operate, so that our customers are reassured that the equipment we use in their operations is ready and available to serve them, making decisions proactively in the face of eventualities. We believe that Quantum is one of the enablers to do this”.

The system will be installed standalone initially quickly, followed by a second phase to integrate it with SAI’s backend systems, including Flight Information and Maintenance Support Systems. On its digital transformation plan, SAI relies on Quantum to build its Operations Control Center (CCO) that will allow SAI to predict operation and equipment probabilities, so the Operations team can make the best choices, and react better and faster when a customer needs it. All of this is part of the plan to become the most reliable and trustable handler for all clients.

“We are very pleased to support SAI in its planned growth by bringing our extensive experience from similar projects to SAI in Bogota. Our adjustability to customer processes and our simple integration capabilities will be key success factors for this installation” states Ursula Hess, Managing Director of Quantum Aviation Solutions GmbH, the business unit for Quantum’s GSE solutions.

IATA RESOLUTION 753 – Quantum

Volaris Airlines has a growing operation in Mexico City International Airport (MEX). The low-cost carrier is an active participant in IATA 753 and sought Quantum’s expertise to strengthen their baggage handling capabilities. Quantum has been able to enhance Volaris’ transfer operation in MEX by implementing the Quantum BRS product to manage transfer operations, improve efficiencies and prevent mishandled baggage. These developments both reduce costs for the carrier and improve the passenger experience.

As more airlines work to comply with IATA 753, the standard of service across the entire aviation industry will inevitably be raised. This will affect airlines of all sizes, whether or not they are IATA members. Quantum’s efficient SaaS solution makes them poised to elevate low-cost carriers to this heightened standard because of the small financial and technical footprint left by each installation.

As Volaris Airlines continues to make strides in their transfer operation in MEX, they also plan to expand services to o7ther Mexican airports such as Guadalajara, as well as other stations in the U.S.
