AOCC for stakeholder coordination to ensure airport and flight operational efficiency. Meanwhile, AICC is to monitor the performance of facilities and infrastructure both inside the terminal building (x-ray, walk through metal detector, fire alarm system, air circulation, etc.) and outside the terminal building (Main Power System power plant, CCTV system, network , clean water management, etc.).
