IBM Opens First Asia Pacific Airport Solutions Lab in India

IBM has announced the launch of its Airport Solutions Lab in New Delhi, the first-of-its-kind center in the Asia Pacific region. Co-located with IBM’s Research and India Industry Solutions labs, the Airport Solutions Lab will be a center to showcase IBM’s novel technology innovations and solutions for airports and airlines.

The demand for air travel continues to expand globally, with an estimated 7 billion passenger trips by 2020, from 2.2 billion trips in 2009. With rising capacity demands, airports are also facing challenges in providing enhanced customer services, reducing costs, and increasing revenue. Airports therefore need smarter solutions to revitalize their processes and ensure better business growth.  

The Airport Solutions Lab will host technical and subject matter experts who will help customers witness and understand the various airport solutions that are offered by IBM. The lab will enable customers to have access to solutions on a wide range of areas such energy management, asset management, space management, airport operations management and security management, among others. As a regional hub, the lab will cater to airports across the entire Asia Pacific region. 

IBM is a leading provider of airport systems and services and works closely with airports across the world. In India IBM is working with several airports to help them build sophisticated IT environments, improve public services through greater customer insights, and enhance operational efficiency
