ADB SAFEGATE has completed the acquisition of Ultra Airport Systems (AS), the global provider of airport IT systems and data analytics solutions.
The deal combines the two companies‘ expertise and solutions, creating the foundation of a Total Airport Management (TAM) solution provider.
Christian Onselaere, chief executive officer for ADB SAFEGATE, said: “Through smart integration, ADB SAFEGATE is enabling airports and airlines to achieve the highest operational efficiency and deliver the best possible passenger experience. The creation of ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems is accelerating this transformation.”
The acquisition will help ADB SAFEGATE apply integration and automation technologies, advanced data analytics and deep airport operations expertise to offer TAM.
The new business unit will also expand its portfolio of operational performance, flight information display, billing, baggage management and situational awareness solutions by adopting and helping to further develop ADB SAFEGATE’s software and advanced analytics products and services.
Advanced analytics provides airports with increasingly powerful ways to optimise operational efficiency and improve their traffic handling capacity.
Sebastien Jodeau, managing director for ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems, said: “As part of ADB SAFEGATE, not only will we continue to bring our expertise to airports worldwide so they can continue to improve their operations, but our combined capabilities will create a unique opportunity to further enhance their business performance.”
Operating under the name ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems, the former Ultra Airport Systems team will gain the support of ADB SAFEGATE aviation specialist resources.
