Airport Budgets to Hit USD8.7 Billion

The rate of investment in information technology at airports around the world is rising, with the

latest figures from SITA estimating it will touch USD8.7 billion this year and airport chief information officers predicting even higher budgets for 2016. 

The annual Airport IT Trends Survey presented feedback from more than 223 hubs and illustrated that a priority is to improve the customer experience as rising numbers put greater pressure on capacity and infrastructure.

“With 81 percent of airports investing in beacons and other sensors over the next three years, passengers can expect a more predictable journey through the airport as new features, such as wait times and walk times to the gate, become commonplace,” commented Matthys Serfontein, vice president, airport solutions, SITA.
