Astana International Airport selects SITA for ongoing transformation

Location: Astana, Kazakhstan
07 April 2014

Kazakhstan's second-largest international airport, Astana International Airport, has introduced SITA's world-class AirportVision® flight information display systems to provide real-time flight information to its growing passenger base.
    
Radilbek Adimolda, Deputy Chairman of the Board, Astana Airport, said: "SITA's flight information systems give us a cost-effective way to keep passengers informed, while helping to facilitate passenger flows."

In recent years, Astana Airport and SITA, the world's leading specialist in air transport communications and IT solutions, have partnered on several airport modernization projects. For example, SITA's next generation Airport Management solution--the first in Kazakhstan--enables the airport to monitor and control its operations in real time.

SITA's passenger processing system, AirportConnect Open, allows the airport and its airlines and handling agents to access their respective IT applications in real time on shared equipment. It also enables any airline to use any agent desk, gate position or self-service kiosk for passenger check-in, bag drop and boarding. SITA's departure control system, MaestroDCS Local, automates departure control processes at the airport, which improves productivity, accuracy and security.

Dmitry Krasnov, Vice President, SITA Russia and CIS, said: "Over the last two years, Astana International Airport has transformed itself into an intelligent airport, which can track, manage and share real-time information. Our most recent deal with Astana is a natural extension of the airport's leading-edge airport management and passenger processing systems."

Astana International Airport serves more than 15 airlines and operates 120 flights per day both within the Commonwealth of Independent States and to other regions. In 2013, the airport handled 2.6 million passengers and 8.4 tons of cargo.
