Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Systems has teamed up with Frequentis to digitise airports worldwide in order to improve processes in the passenger, logistics and airside areas.

The agreement was signed at the inter airport Europe trade fair in Munich being held from 9 to 12 November 2021.

Andy Lesser, who is in charge of T-Systems Mobility, Transport and Logistics, called digitisation, flexibility and resilience key for airports.

“Together with Frequentis, we can now realise the fully digitised airport,” Lesser noted.

Currently, over 50 international airports including Frankfurt, Munich, Beijing Daxing, and Jakarta, use T-Systems’ airport management solutions.

Frequentis focuses on apron management such as rolling aircraft and secure voice communications. It counts Hong Kong (HKG), Munich (MUC), Frankfurt (FRA) and Dubai (DXB) airports as clients.

Under this new partnership, T-Systems and Frequentis intend to equip the airports with technologies such as cloud solutions, 5G mobile networks to improve communication speed, and artificial intelligence (AI).

They will also focus on improving the flexibility of information and technology (IT) systems at the airport and carry out periodic upgrades.

In addition, the pair aim to introduce augmented reality (AR) applications.

Frequentis Airports director Karl Fesl said: “When we connect the data of air traffic control with that of the airport operations centres, our customers, air traffic control, and airport operators can make their operational processes at airports even more efficient and environmentally friendly.

“As a result, both noise and CO₂ emissions can be significantly reduced and punctuality increased. Together with T-Systems, we are a particularly strong team in this regard.”
