Aeroporti di Roma Joins Assaia’s Strategic Partner Community

Aeroporti di Roma, the operator of Rome’s airports, has joined Assaia’s Strategic Partner Community (SPC) through its corporate venture capital arm, ADR Ventures, becoming the first continental European member of the SPC.

Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO)

Assaia was among ten startups selected for ADR’s inaugural “Runway to the Future” accelerator program, where their solution was tested and implemented at FCO. Italy’s primary gateway to the world, Rome’s Fiumicino Airport (FCO), will also implement Assaia’s aircraft turnaround technology.

Using AI, Assaia aims to enhance the passenger experience by reducing turnaround times and improving punctuality. The technology allows real-time responses to optimize gate availability while ensuring apron safety. Furthermore, the data gathered can contribute to the sustainability efforts of airports and airlines by focusing on reducing taxi-in time and limiting auxiliary power unit usage.

As members of the SPC, airport and airline operators leverage their vast industry expertise to provide strategic and practical guidance for the advancement of Assaia’s portfolio of products, particularly in the management and optimization of apron operations.
