Denmark's Copenhagen Airports has selected Amadeus to be its long-term partner, providing a range of IT solutions to Copenhagen's airports.

Under the deal, Amadeus will provide next-generation cloud-based technology to the Kastrup and Roskilde airports.

Amadeus Airport head IT John Jarrell said: "We look forward to helping Copenhagen harness the power of the cloud through this landmark agreement."

The new IT solutions will replace the existing air traffic system.

The airports will be provided with an airport operational database (AODB), baggage reconciliation system (BRS), airport collaborative decision-making portal (ACDMP), and a fixed resource management solution (RMS).

The ACDMP allows airport partners to access consistent operational information on a shared portal.

"We are optimising our infrastructure to better help our airline partners to serve the increasing number of international routes and operations."

Delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), the cloud-based AODB will provide real-time information to stakeholders and systems. It will be hosted off-site, thereby eradicating the need for local infrastructure.

The BRS solution matches real-time passenger, flight and baggage data from check-in to departure.

The solution will replace the three existing BRS systems at the airports and ensure 100% accuracy for baggage reclaim.

Copenhagen Airports Assets and Technology CIO and VP Christian Poulsen said: "Our objective is to grow from 25 to 40 million passengers per year, and as a part of this focus we are optimising our infrastructure to better help our airline partners to serve the increasing number of international routes and operations."
