UK firm to supply operations management systems to Nebraska’s Lincoln Airport
UK company AeroCloud Systems (AeroCloud) has won a contract to provide a full suite of airport operations management systems to Lincoln Airport (LNK) in the US state of Nebraska
Its cloud-based airport operations platform will support ongoing terminal expansion work at LNK, which is due to be completed by February 2023.
The Nebraska gateway handles around 100,000 passengers per annum.
AeroCloud notes that a combination of Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS), Gate Management Systems (GMS) and Common-Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS) is in the process of being deployed to LNK.
The AI-driven GMS will prove particularly valuable in supporting the management of the airport’s commercial aprons to enhance operational efficiency.
AeroCloud believes that its flexible software provides a revolutionary approach to improving and developing airport operation management, utilising innovative cloud-based technology that can be implemented with little or no capital outlay.
“Lincoln Airport is undergoing a huge period of growth. Induction of our totally flexible and scalable products will ensure they can achieve this whilst being time and cost-efficient,” says AeroCloud founder and CEO, George Richardson.
“We are dedicated to the support of airports, and Lincoln will reap the rewards of moving away from legacy providers.”
Chad Lay, director of planning and development at LNK, said: “As we see our footfall picking up post-Covid, we want to provide the best service to our airlines and passengers.
“Our vision is aligned with AeroCloud’s, and their cloud-based technology systems will facilitate the seamless augmentation of our capabilities and enable us to accommodate future changes in demand requirements easily.”
