Work­ing in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with SITA, Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port has adopted the IT provider’s air­port man­age­ment sys­tem (AMS), which in­cludes mod­ern flight in­for­ma­tion dis­play screens.

De­ployed across the en­tirety of the air­port, the new screens re­lay im­por­tant flight data to pas­sen­gers travelling through the ter­mi­nals.

Ad­di­tion­ally, as part of the AMS, Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port staff have ac­cess to a cen­tralised dash­board that is de­signed to in­te­grate sev­eral core mod­ules re­lated to air­port man­age­ment. This in­cludes mod­ules for crit­i­cal land­side and air­side op­er­a­tions, such as re­source man­age­ment, sched­ul­ing, flight in­for­ma­tion, park­ing and billing.

“With a seven mil­lion traf­fic mile­stone on the hori­zon, it is per­haps more im­por­tant than ever to har­ness in­no­va­tion so as to have ac­cess to re­al­time data to plan ahead, make timely de­ci­sions, and im­prove our agility in al­lo­cat­ing the re­sources avail­able in a way that en­hances the air­port ex­pe­ri­ence for our pas­sen­gers and the ease with which our team can per­form cer­tain day-to-day tasks,” said Ian Maggi, head of In­no­va­tion and Tech­nol­ogy at Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Rolled out in sev­eral phases, the full im­ple­men­ta­tion of SITA’s AMS was con­cluded in April 2019.
