ICAD to help India's first digital airport

The upcoming Noida International Airport NIA at Jewar has chosen global technology firm ICAD Holding as its Master System Integrator MSI consultant, as it aims to become the country's first greenfield digital airport.

The airport's digital plans include paperless processing across all checkpoints in line with the central government's DigiYatra policy.

According to a Yamuna International Airport Private Limited YIAPL statement, the facility will be supported with the integration design, integration program management and integration of ICT and Airport Systems as part of its mandate.

The firm will lead the core airport systems implementation and integration, as well as the design, installation, integration, and maintenance of ICT systems required to set up a modern, digital airport.

YIAPL, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Swiss developer Zurich Airport International AG, has been incorporated as a Special Purpose Vehicle SPV to develop Noida International Airport.

NIA will use technology such as indoor navigation, passenger flow management, and data analytics to provide a seamless and mostly contactless flow through the airport, and it will be supported by the implementation of state-of-the-art technology, according to YIAPL.

We are pleased to partner with ICAD in order to bring life to our vision of a digital airport. Christoph Schnellmann, Chief Executive Officer, Yamuna International Airport Private Limited said the digital greenfield airport will enable contactless travel experience and cost-efficient operations for all airport partners.

The statement states that ICAD has partnered with Wipro Ltd and Ross Baruzzini from the USA to provide comprehensive MSI consulting services to YIAPL.

The 45th airport project that ICAD has undertaken, opening the window of opportunity to offer our expertise and services to the East, said Ghassan Sayegh, CEO Group, ICAD, who will work closely with Noida International Airport to deliver India's most advanced, integrated, and eco-sustainable airport.

He added that in due course of time, we look forward to more awards with NIA and other airports in India.
