American airport operator the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has contracted parking management firm Designa Access Corporation to install new vehicle parking and access control systems at four airports under its jurisdiction.
Designa will replace the existing parking systems at John F Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Stewart International Airport. The contract is estimated to be worth in excess of US$70m, and will include the deployment of Designa’s ABACUS technology, which has already been installed at several high-profile international airports worldwide.
Dr Thomas Waibel, CEO of Designa Global, said, “Designa’s participation in the world’s largest parking access and revenue control system (PARCS) project shows that we are a global technology leader, and that our people and systems make the difference.”
Robert J Kane, president of North America operations, Designa, said, “Designa is continuing to grow our presence in the North America marketplace, and we are excited by the opportunity to work together with PANYNJ in delivering a world-class solution to a world-class organization.”
