Specialized software for new airport in Beijing and data in real time speeds up handling processes.
Take-off for T-Systems in China: Deutsche Telekom’s corporate customer arm will equip the new airport in Beijing with specialized Flight Information Integration Systems. The airport software developed in-house by T-Systems will in future ensure smooth workflows for aircraft movements and ground handling processes at the airport in the Chinese capital. The new airport in Beijing is designed for a capacity of 72 million passengers a year and will be put into service in 2019. T-Systems’ solutions for digitizing aviation are already in use at more than 40 airports around the world and are based on 30 years of industry expertise.
Traffic control systems process and analyze the data from air traffic control, airlines, airport and ground handling services. Everyone involved in the process receives in real time the data they need for their various tasks. This provides seamless coordination of aircraft and passenger processes, speeds up aircraft handling, and increases the airport’s profitability.
Thanks to high growth rates with passenger numbers and air freight, the Asia-Pacific region is on the way to becoming the world’s largest aviation market. Particularly in China a large number of airports are having to cope with a sharp increase in air traffic. The digitization of air traffic control is an important component in utilizing airport infrastructure more effectively.
“Following our involvement in two other Chinese air hubs, the contract awarded for Beijing continues our winning streak in the Chinese airport business. We are delighted that our aviation expertise is an important component of the major project in Beijing,” says Adel Al-Saleh, member of the Deutsche Telekom Board of Management and T-Systems CEO.
