French IT company Atos has received a contract worth €12m to manage and overhaul core applications at 46 airports operated by from Spanish airport operator AENA.

The contract is initially valid for three years, with the option to extend it for a further two years available.

AENA uses different applications for the management of its airports, passengers and other airline-related activities.

Under the agreement, the French company will be responsible for making sure that current applications are effectively managed.

The contract also involves the development of new enterprise apps based on technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), biometrics, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve airport operations and passenger experience.

Maintenance of the existing applications accounts for 25% of the contract, while the remaining 75% accounts for the development of the applications, which will be progressively scaled to the rest of the airports.
