With T-Systems and Frequentis, two experts are now pooling their aviation expertise. The aim of the partnership is the far-reaching digitization of airports for more efficient processes in the passenger area as well as in the airside and logistics area of the airport. The two companies signed their partnership agreement on Tuesday at the inter airport europe trade fair in Munich.
T-Systems already provides airport management solutions to more than 50 international airports around the globe, including Frankfurt, Munich, Beijing Daxing and Jakarta. The focus is on flight plan and resource management in the terminal and on the apron. The solutions support the efficient handling of passengers, baggage and cargo. Frequentis, for its part, specializes in apron management, including rolling aircraft, and secure voice communications. Frequentis customers include Frankfurt, Munich, Dubai and Hong Kong airports.
The shock of the pandemic has made it clear to many airport operators that cost reduction alone is not enough for sustainable business. Airports need more flexibility, efficiency and resilience. They need digitization. Together with Frequentis, we can now realize the fully digitized airport.
