AMELIA’s core features are interconnected and constitute a state-of-the-art foundation for smart data-driven airport operations. The whole foundation is extremely flexible and easily adapts to changing requirements.
The oldest code is dated 2020.
Data is key to making intelligent, fact-based decisions — both in response to real-time events and when trying to optimise total airport management for the long haul.
The AMELIA Insights component is powered by a unified analytics engine for large-scale data processing. With it, airports unlock benefits from more accurate forecasting to increased operational efficiency, passenger experience and unlocking commercial potential.
Insights ties the platform together across core features, modules and custom elements. Data-driven insights enable optimisation, prediction and recommendations. As a result, the Insights component provides the basis for a learning system that continuously improves itself.
The Insights component is a powerful data processing engine that collects, transforms and stores large amounts of real-time data, both structured and unstructured, to provide business-critical insights to relevant stakeholders across the Smarter Airports ecosystem.
The data Insights component gives the speed, power and flexibility needed to draw timely insights from massive amounts of highly-varied airport data.
“The AMELIA insights engine ensures that we take business critical
decisions based on the best possible data.”
Continuously operating flights and adapting to unforeseen changes such as disruption or delays are at the core of airport operations.
AMELIA enables the overview and management of all flight records while providing a solid and automated solution to frequent repetitive operations such as flight disruptions. It is instrumental in reducing costs, improving customer experience and enhancing safety.
AMELIA provides an operational point of reference across all airport stakeholders – a single source of truth.
The advanced Operational Flight Management feature provides business value from day one by:
“AMELIA provides credible data allowing for early detection of potential operational disruptions and potential bottlenecks.”
The AMELIA Core Operational Asset Data feature is part of the platform's foundation and includes fundamental data necessary for the operation of an airport.
The feature is a flexible data repository automatically enhanced with more data types, as modules are added to the solution.
Management of data entities is covered in the Bi-temporal Custom Data Management module.
The efficient and reliable operation of an airport depends on having common, comprehensive and always up to date operational data linked to specific flights.
The Airport Operational Database (AODB) gathers, prioritises, and enriches data from different sources — providing various stakeholders with the most relevant and reliable data in real-time - ensuring a single source of truth.
AMELIA connects airports and stakeholders across the ecosystem allowing for value creation based on data and collaboration.
AMELIA fuels an open eco-system and we welcome contributions, applications and integrations with third parties. APIs, data, processes and widgets are shared online among members of the AMELIA community. This allows for ease of use, a quick time to market and the acceleration of digitalisation in the total airport management domain.
Reacting to changes in data and unexpected situations is a vital and crucial part of everyday work at an airport. AMELIA enables situational awareness by allowing automated alerts to be raised on specific requirements, visual cues to highlight problem areas, and dashboards to group data and give a better overview.
AMELIA also offers the ability to customise both dashboards and visual/audio cues, increasing the work performance of each individual employee. Moreover, AMELIA is accessible on multiple platforms (mobile/tablet/CUTE).
The AMELIA Situational Awareness feature enables each employee to customise the data that is important for their role — creating an interface that facilitate, and improves, their workflow:
Integrate to existing systems using a shared integration library, where high-quality, well-documented APIs — the essential connectors of the AMELIA platform — are stored.
The Integrations Framework feature enables users to both customise their workflows based on airport needs, and access a stable foundation from domain standard integrations.
The Integration Framework is being developed continuously — with new integrations added to the shared integration library, as they become available
The Integrations Framework feature enables smooth integration with existing data providers and consumers.

Airports are powered by a wide range of teams, working simultaneously to keep operations running smoothly. While some workers are focused on the air — tracking flights and organising the runway — others are on the ground, loading cargo, transporting passengers and keeping everyone safe.
With so many people involved in daily operations, user management becomes critical to an airport’s success. Teams need the data that’s relevant for them, delivered at the time they need it. And security is of utmost importance too — you don’t want business-critical, sensitive data falling into the wrong hands.
The state-of-the-art role management and delegation system in AMELIA empowers fine-grained access control tuning down to a field level. End-users experience a seamless interaction with the platform through personalised content, while the business rest assured that everyone has what they need — and nothing they don’t.
The AMELIA platform has been built to deliver dynamic management of users and roles, ensuring secure access throughout the platform.
AMELIA’s approach to user management and security is based on a foundation of up-to-date industry standards and state-of-the-art customisation.
The Bi-temporal Custom Data Management module gives unique access to the building blocks of Core Operational Asset Data and allows the user to change the data structure. This includes minor changes — like adding more properties on aircraft types — and larger ones, like creating entirely new data types. The module gives full control to the flexible part of the data structure and allows for modifications to data and thereby also the use of data, both directly and by other modules, for flight record enrichment for example.
Data is handled bi-temporally, as well as flexibly. All data is automatically enhanced with a start and an end time/date, making it possible for the user to specify validity periods and control the use of data over time, while the system automatically ensures correct and valid relations between datasets.
For utmost management and control, platform administrators can layer an approval process on all data changes. This means no change will take place without being approved.
Planning of airport activities, and ultimately passenger forecasting, is key for raising efficiency, improving safety, reducing emissions and controlling operational cost. The AMELIA Flight Schedule Management module allows for maximum resource utilisation across multiple planning scenarios.
The Flight Schedule Management module enables smooth processing of flight schedules, making smarter schedule assessment and activation possible.
The Flight Schedule Management module provides business value from day one by:
The Flight Schedule Management module is being developed continuously, with new features added in each development cycle.
The Schedule Maturity Score is one such feature. Based on AI, the system can continuously activate flight records allowing for early planning.
When the planning process for a new season begins, airports continuously receive schedule entries – as the process proceeds, the plan is updated regularly with changes, additions and cancellations. Only once the plan stabilises can it be activated, because once it is activated, airport operations are planned according to the capacity required.
Activating a high quality seasonal plan, as early as possible, is a strong advantage for airports — allowing them to plan operations ahead of time. However, before activating a plan, the airport must determine if the plan is mature enough for activation. A plan is considered mature once its data has reached reliability. And that’s where the AMELIA Schedule Maturity Score comes in.
The AMELA system calculates a “maturity score” for each entry, indicating how reliable the data entries are. The score is calculated using artificial intelligence (AI) based on a combination of different parameters and data sources. For example:
The score is expressed as a percentage and can be aggregated on route, airline and overall season level too.
Optimal planning, and correct allocation, of resources is vital to the efficient and safe operation of an airport. The AMELIA Resource Allocation and Planning module allows for registration of airport assets and capabilities related to aircraft parking. It supports resource allocation and impact assessments related to in-operative events too.
The Resource Allocation and Planning module allows for the aeronautical infrastructure to be registered and allocated to flight operations.
The Resource Allocation and Planning module provides value by combining the asset registry with operational allocations. This enables:
The Resource Allocation and Planning module is continuously being enhanced with new features and capabilities.
