Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Azerbaijan has become the first airport in the world to completely switch to Cloud technologies.
The airport serves as the home base for national carrier Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) and Buta Airways.
IT services provider Amadeus worked with the Baku-based airport in using Cloud to manage its passenger and operational systems.
The new software will enable AZAL to personalise passenger service more efficiently, and qualitatively enhance the booking system’s functionality, inventory database, and income management system.
Azerbaijan Airlines president Jahangir Asgarov and Amadeus general counsel and corporate secretary Tomás López Fernebrand have also signed an agreement on the introduction of Amadeus Altéa PSS software at AZAL.
Asgarov said: “One of our priority goals is to increase the passenger traffic in the country and modern technologies help us to do this. Partnership with Amadeus will allow us to improve the efficiency of work, and, most importantly, to improve the quality of services provided to AZAL passengers.”
