Building the airports of the future.
Air travel is more than transporting people from one place to another. Increasingly, airports have evolved into distinct ecosystems, providing an experience that includes shopping, dining and entertainment. The challenge is to deliver new experiences in an environment that is safe and secure and with operations that run like clockwork.
Keeping passengers safe is always an airport’s number one priority, but the security challenges airports face can change on a daily – even hourly – basis. It’s critical that a security system provides a full understanding of the entire facility.
Keeping airports moving
Create seamless journeys
Forward-thinking airports are focused on delivering a passenger journey that is uninterrupted from end-to-end, starting when passengers leave their homes and finishing when they board the aircraft. Reducing stress as well as improving flow-through and predictability are key. A smooth journey requires a resilient infrastructure, smart planning, and an investment in technology.
Increase commercial success
Every additional minute a passenger spends going through security, not only dampens their experience but also significantly reduces the time they spend in your airport’s retail outlets and restaurants. To be commercially viable, an airport needs to guide people through its terminal in the quickest possible time so they can relax and enjoy the amenities you have to offer.
Deliver a safe, secure environment
Airports are enhancing security and implementing new processes to keep their personnel, passengers, and buildings safe today and for the future. One challenge is developing a truly integrated platform that pulls together new technologies into a single robust user interface. To meet this challenge, airports require a flexible technology platform to keep pace with a changing environment.

Whether it’s passing through passport control or picking up their bags from the carousel, passengers want a smooth, delay-free experience. Airports understand this desire, yet they realize making sure everything flows is no easy task. For the passenger, however, it should feel effortless.
"We have the flexibility and peace of mind to expand and customize our system at our own pace. Our operators also have the tools to maintain the highest levels of safety and security within our airports.”
