Global IT provider to the air transport industry, SITA, will provide key systems at Algeria’s new international terminal at Houari Boumediene International Airport.
The new terminal, which opened to the public in April 2019, is among the first few airports in North Africa to use SITA’s Airport Management Solution.
Using SITA’s Airport Management Solution – a suite of integrated software applications designed to manage airport operations from the terminal to the airfield – the airport is able to centrally manage everything from passenger processing, baggage handling to the real-time allocation of fundamental resources across the terminal.
SITA has also installed more than 156 common-use check-in and boarding gates as well as a dozen self-service kiosks to be used by airlines operating from the new terminal.
SITA has also implemented a baggage reconciliation system, while more than 320 flight displays screens across the terminal will keep passengers informed at every step.
In the control room, the airport operations team will have access to real-time data to better anticipate, plan and control the airport’s operations.
The new Terminal 4 is expected to accommodate 10 million passengers a year, raising the airport’s overall capacity to 18 million passengers.
