Engineering firm Adelte has signed a contract with the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) to improve boarding operations at Jinnah International Airport, near Karachi in Pakistan.
The contract includes the dismantling and disposal of 12 old passenger-boarding bridges (PBBs) and the design, manufacture and installation of 18 new electromechanical glass-sided Apron Drive models, along with 12 walkways and 30 rooftops.
Adelte will also provide 12 innovative Zephir preconditioned air units (45T and 90T) from its ground support equipment range. The new equipment will serve a wide range of aircraft, adapting to the current and future needs of airlines operating at the airport.
Jordi Floreta, vice-president and commercial director at Adelte, said, “Pakistan is a growing market where we already have experience providing airport equipment. The PCAA is very demanding and is willing to modernize its airport infrastructure and enhance operations with Adelte’s high quality technology, products and services. We are very confident that this contract will consolidate a long term relationship.”
