Many people think that mobile applications are simple solutions for simple problems. It is true that they can be used easily (if they are designed properly) but quite often they solve quite complex issues. This is especially true at airports where quite often old fashioned, bilateral and voice based communication channels exists for transferring very involved messages.
Integration is a key issue in today's environment, especially in case of complex transport systems, like in the case of airports. Airport IQ is a solution to integrate the information already available and to update it with producing new information coming mainly directly for those persons who are yet quite often fully or partially out of the communication process: the ground handlers. With the involvement of persons who are actually working around the aircraft, the turnaround efficiency can be improved to a large extent.
