ADB SAFEGATE has completed its 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 to create the foundation of a Total Airport Management (TAM) solution provider.
The acquisition will help ADB SAFEGATE to further apply integration and automation technologies, advanced data analytics and deep airport operations expertise to offer TAM. Airports and airlines will gain greater operational efficiency, sustainability and safety by integrating systems across the entire airport, airside and landside.
Operating under the name ADB SAFEGATE Airport Systems, the former Ultra Airport Systems team will gain the support of ADB SAFEGATE aviation specialist resources to help it better serve its existing airport and airline customers and accelerate its growth. 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. From today’s real-time insights to improve situational awareness, to future prescriptive analytics that will support decision making by predicting issues and intelligently recommending corrective actions, advanced analytics has huge potential for airports and airlines.
