Technology developer ADB Safegate has completed its acquisition of Ultra Airport Systems, a global provider of airport IT and data analytics systems for airports.
The deal combines the two areas of expertise to create the foundation for a Total Airport Management (TAM) solution provider.
The acquisition will help ADB Safegate to further apply integration and automation technologies, advanced data analytics and deep airport operations expertise to offer TAM. Airports and airlines will gain greater operational efficiency, sustainability and safety by integrating systems across the entire airport, airside and landside.
Operating under the name ADB Safegate Airport Systems, the former Ultra Airport Systems team will gain the support of ADB Safegate aviation specialist resources to help it better serve its existing portfolio and accelerate its growth.
The new business unit will also expand its portfolio of operational performance, flight information display, billing, baggage management and situational awareness solutions by adopting ADB Safegate’s software and advanced analytics products and services.
Christian Onselaere, CEO of ADB Safegate, said, “As airports everywhere strive to meet growing demand, our newly combined solutions, expertise and reach will help airports and airlines adopt emerging digital technologies. These offer the most cost-effective way to increase operational efficiency, improve safety and enhance sustainability.
“Through smart integration, ADB Safegate is enabling airports and airlines to achieve the highest operational efficiency and deliver the best possible passenger experience. The creation of ADB Safegate Airport Systems is accelerating this transformation.”
Sebastien Jodeau, managing director of ADB Safegate Airport Systems, said, “This is exciting news for me and all our Airport Systems’ colleagues who have been contributing to improve our industry for so many years.
“As part of ADB Safegate, not only will we continue to bring our expertise to airports worldwide, so they can continue to improve their operations, but our combined capabilities will create a unique opportunity to further enhance their business performance.”
ADB Safegate will be exhibiting at this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo, on March 26, 27 and 28, 2019, in London. More than 7,350 attendees from more than 100 countries are expected at the event, which boasts more than 300 exhibitors and 375 expert speakers.
