IT developer Amadeus has signed and agreement with airport operator Copenhagen Airports to provide next-generation cloud-based technology for Kastrup and Roskilde airports in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The agreement will see nine Amadeus solutions being implemented to replace the current air traffic system. This includes Amadeus’s flight information display system (FIDS), mobile resource management system (MRMS), airport analytics, local information broker, airport operational database (AODB), fixed resource management system (FRMS), departure sequence manager (SEPL), airport collaborative decision making (A-CDM) portal, and baggage reconciliation system (BRS).
Christian Poulsen, chief information officer and vice president for assets and technology at Copenhagen Airports, said, “We have an ambitious vision to become a world-class hub for Northern Europe. Our objective is to grow from 25 to 40 million passengers per year, and as a part of this focus we are optimizing our infrastructure to better help our airline partners to serve the increasing number of international routes and operations.
“We have chosen Amadeus as a strategic partner. Amadeus has the proven experience and leading cloud capabilities to deliver an operational traffic IT solution which will enable us to meet our goals while in parallel ensuring we keep our focus on continued innovation.”
John Jarrell, head of airport IT at Amadeus, said, “We look forward to helping Copenhagen harness the power of the cloud through this landmark agreement. Airports around the world are considering how new approaches to technology can help increase capacity, efficiency, the passenger experience and open new revenue streams, while also delivering more competitive services to their airline customers.
“With the ongoing air traffic capacity constraints that exist in Europe we are seeing a shift in the industry as airport operators such as Copenhagen Airports, a company consistently recognized for its efficiency and emphasis on innovation, take advantage of the benefits of the cloud.”
