In addition to providing a more memorable airport experience for our passengers, the smart use of technology is key to improving the efficiency, resilience and reliability of our business and the airport operation it supports.
One of the key initiatives undertaken by Dubai Airports in 2014 was the continued enhancement of the Airport Operating System, which will support the new Airport Operations Control Centre (AOCC) from which all stakeholders, including airlines and control authorities, will manage their operations at Dubai International and, in the future, at DWC.

Drawing on real-time links across an increasing number of data fields from key stakeholders such as Emirates, flydubai and dnata, the new Info Gateway platform enables operational information exchange between these stakeholder systems, improving the overall visibility and availability of operational information needed for planning and daily operation.
A vital data field added in 2014 was information provided by the point of origin on all inbound flights to Dubai.
