Amadeus brings automated airports to Azerbaijan
Spanish IT company Amadeus, a fundamental fixture of the back-end of the online travel industry, has delivered a suite of new technology that will upgrade and automate the management systems at Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Azerbaijan. The intention is that automated management systems, which will be cloud-based, and deal with everything from flight information display systems to baggage reconciliation systems, should let the airport enhance its operations and offer an improved service to travellers.

Automation at airports will be a transformative trend over the next five years, as travel providers look to maximize the efficiency of their industry. Amadeus Airport IT sales and marketing global head, Yannick Beunardeau, said:
“Airports around the world are looking at how new technologies can improve operations throughout the airport – behind the scenes and in front of the passenger. We are very pleased to be working with Heydar Aliyev International Airport to power its technology and help provide a smoother, easier, and more comfortable experience for passengers.”
The automated solution Amadeus is providing is made up of five scalable systems: Amadeus common use service, baggage reconciliation systems, airport operational database, fixed resource management solutions, and flight information display systems.
