Ten North American airports have contracted for or are already managing field-condition reporting using Passur Aerospace’s OpsNet system. The OpsNet collaborative platform field-condition reporting system helps airport users share airport operational information quickly and efficiently and can save airports from $1.2 million to $12 million by reducing cancellations, diversions and secondary de-icing. Information communicated via OpsNet includes Notam changes, non-Notam but critical notices such as runway configuration, tenant advisories, construction updates and instant messages from airport operations personnel. OpsNet information is also linked in a network of users so they can share operational information with other airports in the network.
