Airports: Dynamic and highly complex

Airports are highly complex facilities –practically a small town in many cases – providing access to national and international air travel. Every day, business travellers and holiday makers arrive and depart, and they demand high standards of service and comfort. In this context there is a need for smart, reliable and efficient access and control systems which allow the smooth handling of passenger traffic. One thing is paramount however: security.

Secure and user-friendly

Security requirements in airports have significantly increased in recent years. Airport operators face the task of maximising the daily flow of pedestrians through the terminals, whilst maintaining this high level of security; this applies in particular to access control and passport checks. Passengers, visitors and employees expect these controls to be quick and user-friendly.

Many years of experience in developing and installing access control systems and specialist customer service in airports ensure enhanced security, efficient pedestrian passage and optimised slot management.
