Switzerland-based ground and cargo handling services provider Swissport International has agreed to deploy Honeywell GoDirect Ground solution for its worldwide operations.

The solution has been jointly developed by Honeywell and telematics company Pinnacle.

Swissport International will deploy the advanced solution to offer real-time information of vehicles used for various services at the airport under the five-year agreement.

The connected ramps enable vehicles to relay data, which will be transferred to the GoDirect Ground software.

The collected data will allow users to reduce turnaround times and maintenance costs by 13%.

Houlberg Instrumentering, the local distributor of Smiths Detection in Denmark, will equip Aalborg Airport with its automated checkpoint lane technology iLane.evo.

HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX scanners at the airport will be upgraded to EDS CB C2 standards. The upgrade will allow passengers to leave electronic devices in their luggage.

The fully integrated and networked solution will create advanced airport security checkpoints in the country.

New security checkpoint lanes will be deployed and four checkpoints will be networked in 2019.

“Gemalto intends to collaborate with an airline to test its biometric boarding technology at Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Terminal 4 in the US.”

Hexagon‘s safety and infrastructure division has secured a contract from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) for the supply of its fully integrated incident management system.

The advanced system will be deployed at Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada to enhance connectivity and efficiency of the airport.

The contract includes installation of a computer-aided dispatch system, records management, application integration platform, mobile apps, and analytics software.

Implementation of new solutions is intended to improve airside activities, security, fire and emergency services, snow removal, and grounds maintenance operations.

Gemalto intends to collaborate with an airline to test its biometric boarding technology at Los Angeles International Airport’s (LAX) Terminal 4 in the US.

Designated as Gemalto’s Live Face Identification System (LFIS), the system will enable operators to check the functionality of facial recognition in place of a traditional boarding pass to meet passenger requirements.

The technology’s compliance with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirements will also be tested.

The existing agent podium will be combined with biometric boarding system to facilitate boarding of passengers.
