Cloud-based testing services provider SOASTA has announced that Gatwick Airport has invested in a platform for CloudTest that will help in accelerating collaborative work and drive further efficiencies.

The initiative will enable the airport to improve the customer experience, as well as share information with airlines and ground services to improve aircraft turnover time.

The move is a part of the airport’s drive to adopt cloud technology to achieve greater economies.

Gatwick Airport is trying to use the technology to improve response times and reduce delays to benefit passengers as it is known to be one of the busiest single-use runway airports.

"SOASTA is a partner that shares our approach to challenging the established view and creating a new paradigm."

Gatwick Airport CIO Michael Ibbitson said: "SOASTA is a partner that shares our approach to challenging the established view and creating a new paradigm. Its CloudTest platform allows us to test capacity and robustness as the project takes shape.

"We are able to test with a degree of precision and accuracy that delivers measurable and actionable data within a very demanding timeframe."
