Aarhus Airport selects Evionica to digitalize ground handling operations for Air Cairo
Evionica, well known for its smart and easy-to-use Weight and Balance software, was chosen by Aarhus Airport (AAR) to support flight operations of Air Cairo, a low-cost Egyptian national passenger airline.
Aarhus, the fastest-growing airport in Scandinavia, was in need of a digital solution, which automates the loading process and shortens the time of ground handling operations while eliminating human error. Evionica’s Weight and Balance solution have been selected and the first Air Cairo flight was performed on Sunday 15th of October 2022, on board Airbus A320 aircraft.
’’The cooperation between AAR Load Control, Air Cairo Ground Handling Team and Evionica has been successful and we have achieved great results. Implementing Evionica’s Weight and Balance solution allowed us to cut over eighty percent (80%) of the time previously used for performing loadsheet and ground handling operations for Air Cairo.’’
– Aarhus Airport’s Senior Director of Route Development, David Surley
Nowadays Aarhus Airport hosts ground operations for Air Cairo’s fleet of fifteen (15) Airbus A320 aircraft, flying three (3) times a week to Hurghada (HRG) and Sharm el-Sheikh (SSH) destinations. Those are the only intercontinental flights operating between Aarhus and Africa.
’’We opened service to Aarhus Airport in 2020. It’s an important route for us and close cooperation with our vendors allows us to increase the number of flights, linking Denmark with popular Egyptian touristic destinations, offering passengers the best value for money through competitive fares, timely flights, and superior customer service.’’
– Air Cairo’s Ground Handling Deputy Manager, Mohamed Khaled
Currently, Air Cairo has a fleet of 22 aircraft, operating more than 200 weekly flights to 51 international and domestic destinations.
“It’s a pleasure to work with Aarhus Airport’s highly competent team and support their ground handling services provided for Air Cairo, while increasing safety and standardization of the passenger aircraft loading process.’’
– Mateusz Godun, CEO, Evionica
