UK-based Ultra Electronics Airport Systems has secured a contract from Lima Airport Partners (LAP) to deliver and deploy an airport information system (AIS) at Jorge Chavez International Airport in Peru.

The Ultra AIS, which functions as a software platform for real-time information management, will help optimise decision-making processes and operations, as well as support a major expansion of Peru’s main airport.

Jorge Chavez International Airport operator LAP intends to upgrade and expand existing airport infrastructure, in addition to developing a new passenger terminal and a second runway.

Initially, the AIS project will aim to enhance the efficiency and operational capacity of existing terminal operations at Jorge Chavez International Airport.

Lima Airport Partners Information Technology (IT) director Luis Saenz said: “We are growing rapidly and we require systems that can be readily adapted to our needs and that simplify intersystem communications.

"Ultra’s solution will enable us to better partner with our airlines and other stakeholders for operational efficiency."

“Ultra’s solution will enable us to better partner with our airlines and other stakeholders for operational efficiency.”

With the integration of the AIS system, the airport will be able to automate its operational processes to address the increasing demand and improve utilisation of existing resources that enable handling of more than 18 million passengers every year.

The scalable AIS solution will also provide collection data for analysis and forecasting, without costly advancements and system support services.

In addition, the system allows the airport operator to focus more on tactical and strategic operational decisions, instead of repetitive daily tasks.

The AIS solution features an airport operational database (AODB), a flight management system, a resource management system and enterprise service bus (ESB) / integration broker.

It is expected to be fully operational by the end of this year.
