JFKIAT is strengthening its relationship with Ultra Electronics Airport Systems to incorporate recent technological enhancements.

For more than a decade, JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT) has used Ultra’s airport operations suite (AOS) to operate Terminal 4 (JFKT4).

Throughout this period, the AOS has consistently provided the outstanding reliability and functionality required for the operation of a complex international airport terminal.

JFKIAT CEO and president Gert-Jan de Graaff said: "Ultra’s systems are critical for our operation, and with a record number of passengers passing through our terminal this year, we felt it was important to make the investment. We continue to be committed to providing the passenger with a first-rate experience."

Ultra’s enhancements provide optimised access to airport-data supported by precision filtering-routines and intuitive graphical displays, which ensure users’ heightened awareness of all aspects of airport-operational status.

Flights, codes, messages, ground-movements, and passenger-dispositions are made instantly recognisable, allowing processes to be streamlined and problems corrected as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, Ultra’s end-to-end billing software brings new efficiencies to even the most elaborate invoicing procedures, ensuring that all revenues are recognised in the timeliest fashion, and clients are kept fully informed.

The release comprises Ultra’s well-proven integrated airport operations suite, covering flight management, resource optimisation, information display, charge calculation, and data integration.
