Indian airports more connected than ever

Airports are becoming increasingly connected – and complex as a result. By 2030, 18,000 airline communication connections will be needed at the world’s airports, of which there’ll be 500 more in operation. New aircraft, more stakeholders, more passengers – and all eager to put the latest technology to work.

Reliable, secure, high performance connectivity is essential to meet these challenges as well as connectivity demands and expansion plans.
An overriding need is for high levels of connectivity, data services and security for increasingly bandwidth-hungry applications, not only in hub airports but also for airlines with networks covering remote regions. The requirement is for reliable, secure, high performance communications – consistently across the world’s airports – for airlines, ground handlers, maintenance companies, other airport tenants and the airports themselves.

In India, the government’s initiative to focus on low-cost no frills airports, there is a greater need to use technology to operationalize efficiencies and minimize costs.

The aviation industry in India is on the brink of a transformation, predicted to be the third largest in just three years and the largest by 2030. Airlines, airports and their technology partners are compelled to find smarter intuitive connectivity solutions.
