Airports take advantage of lull in activity to test innovative system for aircraft hauling
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) with its partners TLD and SAS is expanding its TaxiBot operation and deployment to additional airports including Schiphol in Amsterdam and Bangalore Airport in India.
The airport at Bangalore is testing the system in order to start operating after the lockdown ends.
With the Covid19 crisis bringing the operations in airports to a near-halt, airports are using their time and space for testing various developments and ways to streamline their operations. The Amsterdam airport recently started a pilot of aircraft taxiing with the TaxiBot to streamline the process.
