Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) has entered into an agreement via a reseller to equip its workforce with Mobile Tornado’s critical communications technologies.

LBA, Yorkshire’s largest airport, will use Mobile Tornado’s push-to-talk over cellular (PTToC) solutions to provide instant communications with individuals and groups in a targeted and coordinated way. This will improve safety, efficiency and productivity in complex daily operations. According to Mobile Tornado, LBA is one of the first airports in Europe to upgrade its radio system to a PTToC platform.

Mobile Tornado targets sectors that depend on fast, robust and reliable communications between individuals and groups. The low-cost technologies are deployed in more than 30 countries worldwide with mobile operators, government agencies and private enterprises. The company provides seamless switching between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G mobile and Wi-Fi networks and is available via the latest ruggedised handsets and smartphone application for Android and iOS operating systems.

The contract was won by Storm, a key reseller of Mobile Tornado technologies and is initially for 200 user licences.

Damian Ives, chief operating officer at LBA, said: “We are investing heavily in people and technology to make sure that passengers have the best possible experience when travelling through Leeds Bradford Airport.

“Mobile Tornado’s technologies will help us to manage operations and achieve our ambitions. As a regional airport, we plan our development with the local economy, environment and stakeholders in mind and we are delighted to be working with Mobile Tornado, a local company with world-leading technology.”
