Abstract

The aviation industry outlook has changed dramatically since 2019. The pandemic situation has impacted the airlines and passenger amounts and changed the outlook of the future. Prior to this situation the industry had faced a challenge in confronting the climate change and pursuing the sustainable solutions for the industry. Disruption in these fronts calls for actions to provide solutions and ways forward as part of the future transport solutions. It is proposed that the effort in research should be interlinked with the industry to accelerate and make possible the utilization of research results in future solution in smart mobility and accessibility including the future air transport. One of the key actions is to provide smooth access to and from airfields in which the energy efficiency and sustainability are key design points. In this paper we elaborate the airport operations with infrastructure solutions that provide end-to-end solutions of the operations with zero emissions target. The design is based on digital twin that encompasses the elements crucial in designing such a system on infrastructure and functional viewpoint. Key parameters are based on data and dynamically modelling the operations in an airport and its support processes.
