Bluugo had the honor of acting as a host to Ground Handling International and Swissport Finland as they visited our Vantaa office today. The hot topic of the afternoon was our Tracking Cloud™ Flight Delay Prediction Tool developed in collaboration with Swissport Finland. The solution won the Innovation Award at the Pride of Ground Handling Awards in Gothenburg last November and now Ground Handling International wanted to dive deeper into the technology behind the project in the form of an interview for their own magazine.

The solution allows ground handling personnel to receive more precise information about the landing time of planes much earlier than before using machine learning and previously collected data. This makes the ground handling process more efficient, as ground handling personnel can effectively plan their work and have the right staff resources and vehicles at the right place in the right time. This greatly benefits Swissport, the airline companies as well as the passengers. Win-win-win.
