Ultra BH Airport

Exactly on schedule, only ten months after contract award, Ultra and BH Airport successfully cutover to their new airport management system at Brazil’s Belo Horizonte International Airport.

"Ultra delivered as promised – on time and within the original budget. They worked side-by-side with our IT and Operations teams to support all of our planning, design and test activities. The overall result was a successful cutover," said Daniel Bircher, operations director, BH Airport.

The airport management system provided by Ultra includes an airport integration broker (IB), as well as an airport operational database (AODB), resource management system (RMS) and flight information displays (FIDS), fully integrated with over a dozen other systems that are all honed into a state-of-the-art Airport Operations Control Center (APOC).

The BH Airport APOC enables a complete, real-time vision of aircraft movements and other airport operational resource activities using intelligent alert notification and monitoring of key performance indicators to maximise safety, efficiency and passengers’ experience. At the same time, airlines take advantage by receiving accurate operational planning and being physically present at APOC. Other benefits include automated resource planning, collaborative decision-making and increased agility in response to operational changing conditions.

Paul Drury, Ultra’s vice-president, Americas stated: "This project ensures that BH Airport will improve the productivity of their facilities and resources as they expand to meet rapidly growing passenger demand. We look forward to providing even more capabilities in preparation for the new terminal opening at the end of 2016."
