We are delighted to announce that Brisbane Airport (BNE) has signed an initial 3 year contract with AIRDAT Passport, Onboard and VISA systems to manage all aspects of their Airside Driving Applications (ADA) and Authority To Use Airside (AUA) systems.

This exciting new partnership between AIRDAT and Brisbane Airport enables BNE to upgrade and streamline the way licences, permits and training records are managed, tracked and audited throughout the airport. 

Charles Cardwell, AIRDAT CEO & Founder had this to say:

“Brisbane Airport were actively looking for a solution that could modernise and future proof their existing legacy systems whilst remaining cost effective. PASSPORT had the potential to unite existing training, permits and licensing schemes and ease the pressure on staff, making it a great solution.”

AIRDAT’s Onboard, Passport and Visa systems will provide Brisbane Airport with everything they need to effectively modernise their existing systems. AIRDAT’s products are delivered via a SaaS model, meaning that infrastructure, maintenance, updates and support are all included in the solution. 

With no additional resources required from Brisbane’s own IT department, the AIRDAT systems could revolutionise the way licensing, permits and other training records are managed, tracked and audited.

Passport a cloud based system system features tools to deliver:

  • Course booking
  • Online test management
  • eLearning authoring & distribution
  • Competency & skills tracking
  • Licence & permit issue
  • Penalty schemes 
  • Comprehensive reporting & credit control suite

Onboard enhances and streamlines the airside operator licence application process and ensures a robust licensing scheme is maintained. Once operators are approved, the fleet module allows users to raise airside vehicle & equipment permits. The Onboard system will be configured to Brisbane airport requirements and provide the ability for staff to apply for permits online 24/7.

VISA App provides a holistic insight into the airport operation in the form of an easy-to-use app, empowering BNE stakeholders to securely access information from the cloud in an instant. Stakeholders can:

  • Book training and audit training records
  • Review fleet permits
  • Issue penalties
  • Record fleet defects
