Algiers Airport selects SITA for airport management solution

Technology firm SITA has secured a contract to power the new international terminal at Algeria’s Houari Boumediene International Airport, also known as Algiers Airport.

Technology firm SITA has secured a contract to power the new international terminal at Algeria’s Houari Boumediene International Airport, also known as Algiers Airport.

SITA will deploy its airport management solution at Terminal 4, which was opened to the public this April.

The technology vendor said that its platform will enable the airport to manage every aspect of operations, from the terminal to the airfield.

Leveraging the new solution, Algiers Airport can centrally manage baggage handling, as well as passenger processing.

SITA claims that the solution will also support the real-time distribution of resources throughout the terminal.

The company has already deployed over 156 common-use check-in and boarding gates along with 12 self-service kiosks for passengers using the new terminal.

The technology firm has also installed a baggage reconciliation system to facilitate the delivery of baggage to the right destination. The terminal also features over 320 flight display screens to keep passengers informed.

SITA added that its airport management solution will give the airport operator the latest data to better expect, plan and control the airport’s operations in real-time.

Algiers Airport’s new Terminal 4 has an annual passenger handling capacity of ten million, which will boost the airport’s overall capacity to 18 million passengers per annum.

Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario Del Pacífico (GAP) recently implemented SITA’s AirportConnect Open platform at its Mexicali International Airport.

Last month, SITA won a contract to deploy 34 common-use self-service check-in kiosks at Argentina’s Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport (EZE).
