Malaysia Airports Holdings and Asia Mobiliti have adopted Google Cloud’s open data cloud to deliver sustainable, digital-first travel experiences.
To stay ahead of spikes in passenger traffic in and out of its five international airports and 17 domestic airports in Malaysia, Malaysia Airports, with support from CloudMile, has migrated its digital real estate to Google Cloud’s open, scalable, secure, and energy-efficient infrastructure.
By using Google Cloud’s database management services to break down internal data silos, Malaysia Airports is enhancing its ability to push real-time airport and flight information to millions of passengers, thereby allowing them to enjoy smoother experiences from check-in and immigration to boarding and baggage collection.
Vijaykumar Dayinde, chief information officer, Malaysia Airports Holdings, said: “Google Cloud’s open data cloud will provide a strong yet flexible foundation for Malaysia Airports to fulfil our vision of becoming a global airport group that champions connectivity and sustainability, and serve as the gateway for tourists to discover and enjoy all that Malaysia has to offer.”
To enable seamless and more sustainable multimodal transport experiences for tourists in Malaysia, Asia Mobiliti is building and running its mobility-as-a-service platform for businesses and consumers entirely on Google Cloud’s open, scalable, secure, and energy-efficient infrastructure.
With support from PointStar, Asia Mobiliti has also deployed Google Cloud’s advanced analytics and business intelligence tools to give its B2B customers access to real-time insights that help them better respond to commuters’ needs. By leveraging Asia Mobiliti’s ability to ingest and analyse data across different modes of transport and accurately forecast demand using its proprietary machine learning (ML) algorithms, an airport operator or a public transport operator could, for instance, offer demand-responsive transit services (DRT) to malls or hotels in the city. DRT services mean a passenger vehicle, such as a bus or van, is dispatched in response to demand, optimising ridership and cost of trip, and ensuring travel resiliency and reliability with intelligent routing for the quickest and most fuel-efficient routes.
“At Asia Mobiliti, our goal is to help digitise all modes of transport and connect them with each other, thereby enabling seamless and on-demand multimodal transport experiences,” shared Ramachandran Muniandy, CEO and co-founder, Asia Mobiliti.
“While tourists tend to be the biggest consumers of multimodal transport services, citizens stand to benefit too. An effective multimodal public transport system reduces the need for private or single occupancy vehicles. This then translates to reduced road congestion and carbon emissions.”
