French global airport operator VINCI Airports will deploy multi-airport Airport Management technology in order to unify operational solutions across its international network.

The Airport Management solution will initially be installed at 22 airports across France, Portugal and Cambodia.

With this operational unification, VINCI Airports will be able to offer new efficiencies and synergies at airports across its global network.

The multi-airport management solution will be delivered by global IT provider SITA.

VINCI Airports chairman and VINCI Concessions chief executive officer Nicolas Notebaert said: “Given that we operate in airports that are geographically spread out and diverse in terms of size and markets served, we needed a solution that brought some commonality in the operational systems used by our airports, yet was able to accommodate the unique requirements in each location.

“SITA understood our requirements and provides a fit-for-purpose solution.”

"SITA understood our requirements and provides a fit-for-purpose solution."

With the use of the technology, VINCI Airports will be able to streamline operations worldwide by introducing common tools in its airport network.

The tools will include new airport operational databases (AODB) and resource management systems (RMS) as core modules.

There is also a scope of adding complementary systems as and when required, which includes flight information display systems (FIDS), and passenger and capacity optimisation systems.

VINCI Airports currently manages the development and operations of 35 international airports, which includes 13 in France, ten in Portugal, three in Cambodia, two in Japan, six in the Dominican Republic and Santiago airport in Chile, according to the statement.
