"Airport Concepts" project aims in creating new “turnkey service concepts” for international airport customers by combining and complementing the product and service offerings of the member companies. Examples of these service concepts are:
- Service concepts for Winter conditions
- Service concept for Airside lightning, electronics, weather monitoring
- Terminal solutions: Passenger flow solutions, safety and security solutions in terminals
- Airport Planning & Construction concepts: Airport area and Airport concepts
- Terminal service solutions: B2C services in terminals, Design and Implementation
During the Airport Concepts –project the developed turnkey service concepts are also test marketed in the Airport&Aviation Events and fairs to collect the real customer expectations and feedback.
Airport Concepts is funded by European Regional Development Fund, 13 member companies and Vantaa Innovation institute. Project starts in August 2011 and will end in December 2013.

Ubiquitous Helsinki-Vantaa is the first development project of Airport Cluster Finland. The development project aims to secure Helsinki Airport’s position and further development as a world’s top class hub-airport. The project was launched in May 2010. The project includes two different pilots; the first pilot includes the development of safety and operation models in Helsinki Airport apron area with the use of wireless identification and censoring. The second pilot will focus on controlling and optimizing of passenger flow in Helsinki Airport by using RFID and wireless data sharing technologies.
Pilot 1 includes two different phases; tracking of vehicles and monitoring the use of weapons in the apron area. The vehicle tracking system was installed to 17 airport buses in order to monitor the use of buses at the apron area. The real-time tracking system improves utilization of the buses and helps to keep track if buses are available or not. The data collected by the system can be used to allocate the resources efficiently and to avoid unnecessary investments. The second phase of the pilot 1 focuses on monitoring and tracking of weapons that are used in apron area by maintenance staff. A RFID based system was installed in the weapons locker to keep track if the EPC RFID tagged weapons are in use or in the locker.
The pilot 2 aims to study and enhance Helsinki Airport’s passenger flows and develop personalized passenger services by using wireless identification and data collection technologies. The main target is to create an informative, electronic hand held device with an ultra-thin display. These cards will be allocated to transfer-passengers at Helsinki Airport in order to deliver personalized and real-time flight data, e.g. the gate number and the time of departure.
Tekes funded Ubiquitous Helsinki-Vantaa project was carried out during May 2010 – October 2011 in collaboration with Finavia. The project was executed by Vantaa Innovation Institute in cooperation with Metropolia University of Applied Science and three subcontractor companies.
