Beijing Daxing airport is setting new benchmarks in the digitalization of air traffic.
Edgar Ziller, Head of Airport Management, T-Systems
130 million passengers, 700,000 sqm of terminal space, seven take-off and landing runways, a high-speed train. Within a few years, the new Beijing Airport is to be the largest in the world. It is situated in a geographical hub of the People's Republic, therefore serving a metropolitan area of more than 200 million people who are able to reach the airport from 28 major cities within three hours. The number of visitors to the airport is therefore expected to grow. The software which controls the airport's operations must also be correspondingly flexible, since the utilization capacity of the hub will be continuously increased over the coming months until Beijing Daxing is the largest airport in the world.
Passengers, flight times, aircraft width, and much more – an airport is a highly complex ecosystem, the operational efficiency of which is dependent on reliable information and sound decision-making. T-Systems' in-house developed Airport Management System is a fully-integrated complete solution for digital airport management which allows for the complexity of the airport's everyday business with a large number of modular technical components. It fully reproduces all flight-related activities based on real-time data, so enabling better decision-making and a more efficient cooperation between the parties involved in the flight operations. This contributes towards the optimization of handling processes and reliable information from passengers and personnel. This in turn ensures the punctuality of the flight operation.
