Victoria Falls International Airport (VFIA) is one of the main airports in Zimbabwe. The airport is located 18km away from the town of Victoria Falls and mainly serves the tourism industry, handling long distance flights from the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Honeywell’s approach to airports focuses on the management of airside and terminal solutions, enabling airports to better address tough challenges regarding safety, security, efficiency, and productivity.
Landside, airside and airspace solutions to help improve airport effectiveness
Airports are dealing with tough challenges. Increasing passenger volume and growing demand from airline customers, as well as new Air Traffic Management requirements and environmental regulations, urge airports to continuously adapt and improve its infrastructure and operations. Honeywell Connected Solutions link today’s high complex piecemeal systems and integrate multiple management systems to a solid and simple to use control and monitoring system to ease and improve operations.
Honeywell offers smarter solutions for landside, airside and airspace to help to improve airport operation and infrastructure.
