SITA to support systems at Algeria’s new international terminal

Posted 28 August 2019 · Add Comment

SITA has been selected to provide key systems to support the smooth opening and operation of Algeria’s new international terminal at Houari Boumediene International Airport.

The new terminal, which opened to the public in April 2019, is among the first few airports in North Africa to use SITA’s Airport Management Solution.

Using SITA’s Airport Management Solution – a suite of integrated software applications designed to effectively manage airport operations from the terminal to the airfield – the airport is able to centrally manage everything from passenger processing, baggage handling to the real-time allocation of fundamental resources across the terminal.

SITA has also installed more than 156 common-use check-in and boarding gates as well as a dozen self-service kiosks to be used by airlines operating from the new terminal. SITA has also implemented a baggage reconciliation system which will be vital in delivering every bag to the correct destination while more than 320 flight displays screens across the terminal will keep passengers informed at every step.

It is in the control room of the airport where SITA systems will deliver the biggest benefit to the airport. The airport operations team will have access to real-time data to better anticipate, plan and control the airport’s operations. This will give Algiers Airport a better overview of all activities across the new terminal, resulting in proactive and coordinated decision-making across the airport.

SITA’s solutions are present in more than 1,000 airports globally and its Airport Management Solution is being used across Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East, including most recently at Malta Airport and Billy Bishop Toronto Airport in Canada.

SITA will help Algiers Airport deliver the most efficient operation and passenger experience across the new terminal and will help the country achieve the strategic goal of enhancing its airport infrastructure and transforming its aviation sector.
