The increasing air traffic means a great challenge for airports. Development in terms of infrastructure, systems, processes and procedures is a must in today's changing environment. Process harmonisation and synchronising among various partners is a key for success. All of the stakeholders must be able to access the information required for the smooth operation of the "airport-machine".
