Travel News Asia 3 August 2005

SITA INCs next generation, IP-centric airport management platform, AirportConnect, is set to debut in Asia Pacific with the launch of Adelaide Airports new terminal in mid-October 2005.

SITA INC (Information Networking Computing) has signed an exclusive US$4.4 million dollar contract to provide and maintain its AirportConnect suite of IT solutions at Adelaide Airport over a period of 5 years.

Adelaide Airport Ltds (AAL) new AUS$260 million terminal is designed to accommodate up to 27 aircraft at a time, including the new Airbus A380, and will be capable of handling more than 3,000 domestic, international and regional passengers every hour when it commences operation in mid-October 2005.

Speaking about the new terminal, Mr. John McArdle, AALs Manager Corporate affairs said: The fundamental need for our expansion is to add capacity to serve a growing region whose economy is increasingly intertwined with international markets. Our goal is to provide a convenient and efficiently operated airport serving the needs of people all over the world. To accomplish this, we need a strong, experienced technology partner. This is why we chose SITA to help us achieve our vision.

As a next generation solution, AirportConnect supports the deployment of airport, airline and other tenant systems over a wide variety of workstations including PCs, thin-clients, kiosks, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and cell phones.

Using a single, open standard platform, AirportConnect simultaneously provides the benefits of a dedicated (single user) environment with the flexibility and convenience of a shared (multiple user) one. The solution aims to reduce operating costs through an advanced suite of platform services that hasten application development and shorten the time to market.
