ASMIS Taking Off in the Caribbean – December 2008
Ideal Business Services Ltd have installed their ASMIS, (Airport Statistics Management Information System), software for both the St Lucia Air & Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) and Dominica Air & Sea Ports Authority (DASPA).
ASMIS helps small to medium-sized airports to monitor all aircraft, passenger and cargo activity more effectively. The web-based application provides real-time information and management reports on all airport activity, including:
- Aircraft arrivals and departures

- Analysis of aircraft operator activity
- Parkings and extensions
- Analysis of aircraft movements by type and by category
- Airport service charge calculations and invoice production
ASMIS is being used by SLASPA to record all data at their George FL Charles and Hewanorra International Airports. On Dominica, DASPA have installed the system at their Melville Hall and Canefield airports.
Kelvin Henderson, IT Systems Administrator for Dominica Air & Sea Ports Authority, commented, “Dominica Air & Sea Ports Authority was introduced to Ideal Business Services by our friends at SLASPA. Presently, we have ASMIS installed and it is being used at both of our airports effectively.
