Aeronáutica Civil de Colombia (Aerocivil) has contracted a consortium made up of Ineco and Colombian engineering firm Integral to carry out research for the implementation of Apron Management Services (AMS) at the Eldorado International Airport in Bogotá. The AMS service is operated from the airport control tower, and its function is to manage aircraft traffic on the ground.

The research includes a detailed study of all the requirements for the optimum performance of the AMS, including an analysis of Colombian aeronautical regulations, safety requirements, professional profiles, equipment, installations, radio aids, software, hardware, communications and procedures.

The company, which implemented and provided this service from 2011 to 2017 at Barajas airport, will define the strategies and action plan for Aerocivil to determine the best technical-economic alternative to be implemented in 2021.
