UK firm AeroCloud Systems has won a contract to provide a full suite of airport operations management systems to Lincoln Airport, Nebraska (LNK).

AeroCloud’s cloud-based airport operations platform will support ongoing terminal expansion work at LNK, which is due to be completed by February 2023. The Nebraska facility serves more than 100,000 passengers per year, and its addition brings the number of US airports supported by AeroCloud Systems to 16. 

In the process of being deployed at LNK are AeroCloud’s flight information display systems, gate management systems (GMS) and common-use passenger processing systems. The AI-driven GMS will prove particularly valuable in supporting the management of the airport’s commercial aprons to enhance operational efficiency, AeroCloud said.

The solutions are being implemented to support the expansion of operations at LNK to accommodate six gates. Supporting this period of growth, AeroCloud’s solutions will ensure the smooth running of airport operations through the optimisation of staff and airport resources. The 100% cloud native software platform is expected to transform the airport experience for the airlines and passengers which use Lincoln airport.

Chad Lay, director of planning and development at LNK, said: “As we see our footfall picking up post-COVID, we want to provide the best service to our airlines and passengers. Our vision is aligned with AeroCloud’s, and its cloud-based technology systems will facilitate the seamless augmentation of our capabilities and enable us to accommodate future changes in demand requirements easily.”

This latest news follows AeroCloud’s recent announcement of its expansion into Norfolk International Airport in Virginia. Further rollouts of its systems and approach are planned across American and European airports in the coming months.
