Deutsche Telekom's enterprise arm has won major contracts with two Chinese airports to upgrade their existing IT systems to support improvements in air traffic control and airport management.
T-Systems is deploying an Airport Operational Database (AODB) solution and a Resource Management System (RMS) at Haikou-Meilan International Airport, in Hainan province in southern China.
It is also delivering an RMS to support the planning and management of all material and human resources at the Nanjing Lukou International Airport, in eastern China.
The Nanjing airport deployed an AODB solution from T-Systems in 2012.
The Germany-based operator said the continued digitisation of IT-supported air traffic control and airport management is essential for improving flight check-in processes, capacity utilisation and airline scheduling.
Reinhard Clemens, CEO of T-Systems and Board Member Deutsche Telekom, said: “This current success proves that we could convince in Chinese airport market – as the first foreign provider.
“The intensification of our international business is starting to pay dividends.
"T-Systems has 30 years of industry experience in the airport sector and delivers innovative solutions and services to more than 40 major airports worldwide.”
