CIAL Is Set To Introduce Fastag Enabled Smart Parking Systems

Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) is poised to transform its parking amenities by incorporating FASTag and Smart Parking systems. This endeavor is geared towards offering passengers an upgraded and efficient parking encounter. The state-of-the-art Smart Parking system, leveraging advanced technology, is crafted to optimize the parking procedure, slashing payment transaction time to an impressive ‘8 seconds per customer.’ This represents a notable enhancement from the existing average waiting time of around 2 minutes at entry and exit points.

Starting from December 1, 2023, a new parking system and Fastag entries will be in effect. To accommodate vehicles without Fastags, a temporary lane will be designated. Responding to persistent requests from local authorities and the police, commercial taxi services will now have parking facilities within the airport premises, and an entry fee will be collected from all taxis.

In addition to Fastag implementation, the Smart Parking initiative introduces a comprehensive parking management system featuring guidance, slot counting, and number plate reader systems. The Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) has developed additional parking space, expanding its covered parking capacity to around 2800 vehicles for both international and domestic flights. Entry and parking processes will be exclusively handled through the Fastag system.

The ‘Fastag and Smart Parking’ system boasts key features such as a Parking Management System (PMS) for streamlined operations, a Parking Guidance System (PGS) for smooth navigation, and a Parking Slot Counting System offering real-time updates on available spaces. Automated Entry and Exit Lanes with Fastag enable seamless payment, akin to National Highway toll gates. The Automatic Number Plate Reader (ANPR) integrated with the ticketing system precisely records entry times.

The system also includes Pay-on-foot Stations for self-operated parking payments, and passengers can effortlessly book parking slots through a customized mobile portal available on the CIAL mobile application. The Central Control & Command Centre optimizes real-time parking operations through robust networking, lease lines, civil works, and clear signages. The integration of Fastag, RFID readers, ANPR cameras, and more prioritizes speed, convenience, and passenger satisfaction, eliminating entry queues.

The trial phase has already commenced, showcasing the efficiency and convenience of the new parking system. The Parking Management System incorporates a network of 900 Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras strategically placed for meticulous oversight.

CIAL officials express their commitment to enhancing the passenger experience through technological advancements. Following the success of DigiYatra, the ‘Fastag; Smart Parking facilities align with CIAL’s vision to create a technology-driven environment for hassle-free entry, exit, and real-time parking solutions.
