From tracking systems to obtaining new information on passenger behavior, airports are increasingly using new technologies to facilitate the construction of major projects.
According to a recent Business Wire report, the value of the projects in the execution stage is 377.6 billion dollars, while the rest of the projects in the planning stage represents 215.8 billion dollars.
The aviation industry is in continuous development because forecasts are being made regarding the increase in the number of passengers. Thus, by 2037 a number of 8.2 billion passengers is expected annually, so airports do not allow to make compromises in terms of investment.
Basically, building an airport, like any other architectural enterprise, is a complex business, involving a number of interesting parts, from designers to contractors to construction managers and directors.
Airport operators are increasingly resorting to large-scale technology to ensure that projects run as efficiently as possible and are completed within time. There are dozens of hubs worldwide that are trying to highlight technology to their advantage.
According to its latest master plan, Heathrow – the busiest airport in Europe – aims to have a third runway and complete it by 2026. The airport management hopes that the introduction of a new tracking system for pilot components will help them achieve this. this goal in time.
Using the technology developed by Siemens Digital Logistics, the system will track millions of vital construction components, intended for the site of the new runway in real time.
Also, Glasgow Airport could be a fraction of the size of Heathrow Airport, but it remains an important step in the Scottish economy. Its main plan is to increase the number of passengers by 2040 to 17 million annually. He was the first to introduce the A380 service to and from Dubai.
There are other airports in the world and in Europe that are looking for various systems and implementations to improve the passenger experience and to align with the technological standards of contemporary and future years, when the digitalization is constantly expanding.
