AIRPORT VALET PARKING TECHNOLOGY
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS
International airports are among the most complex and interconnected places in the world. Good airport accessibility is key for the competitiveness of an airport. Just like ‘fast travel’ and the comfort and amenities of an airport. A best-in-class valet parking service can contribute greatly to a better airport experience.
Space is scarce
Space at international airports is often scarce. A valet parking solution makes it possible to use more remote parking space to station the vehicles of passengers. Thus keeping the scarce capacity in the direct vicinity of the airport available for high end hospitality, retail, leisure and business opportunities.
BLOCK PARKING ALGORITHM
D&B built an algorithm for ‘block parking’ to optimize space. Conventionally one would park one single vehicle per parking spot. However, thanks to the intelligent algorithm D&B is able to park cars in lanes, single file. This innovative solution alone increases the available parking capacity with 37%. Thus creating:
Higher revenues for the airport, without the need of creating more parking space;
Accessibility of the valet parking service to more travellers.
Valet parking application
The block parking algorithm was integrated in the valet parking app of the company. This application is linked to flight and arrival times and tells the valet parker exactly which car to move next. The app’s GPS tracks the speed and location of the car in real time and logs the exact location in which the car is parked. Details on the driver, mileage and possible damages are recorded in the app, thus providing the traveller with complete transparency.
The valet parking service is very popular among travellers. Passenger park their car right in front of the terminal. During their travel the car is moved to a safe location away from the airport. When they return to the airport their vehicle is brought back to the carpark in front of the terminal and the traveller will be on his/her way in no time. On feedbackcompany.com 93% of travellers recommend the valet service at Schiphol International Airport.
