Our annual user conference is always a highlight of the year for me – it’s fantastic to see a growing number of attendees from the air transportation industry and the feedback we receive directly from our user base is invaluable. This year will be even more memorable, as we’ll be unveiling our new brand: from today, AirIT becomes Amadeus Airport IT.
Following the acquisition in April 2015, and after great collaboration over the past two years, the time is now right to unify AirIT under the Amadeus brand. We share a common vision for the airport industry, and move forward as one unique team of approximately 400 airport and ground handling IT experts.
With our combined expertise and solution set, Amadeus is able to cover all needs for airport operations and we’re excited about the current opportunities we have in this landscape. Currently, our solutions for airport operations are used by 30 airlines, 110 airport operators and 100 ground handlers across the world – our experts are truly global with 9 offices in United States, Spain, France, Germany, UK, Dubai, India, Singapore and Australia.
Reflecting on some of the highlights of late last year and early this year, 2 US airports selected our solutions: Tampa International Airport looked to us to deliver the technology required for their terminal modernization to dramatically transform facilities and improve operational efficiency, increase capacity, and enhance the passenger experience; most recently, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport announced a partnership with us to upgrade its terminal IT with our technology.
