Bangalore International names Unisys as master system integrator

Unisys has been appointed by Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operator of Kempegowda International Airport, to integrate and manage all IT and non-IT systems for Phase 1 of the second terminal (T2). India’s third-busiest airport and among the fastest growing in the world, the airport managed 33.30 million passengers in 2018-19. BIAL’s second terminal project is designed to add capacity to efficiently process and accommodate an additional 25 million passengers per year and will be built in two phases. Scheduled to be operational in March 2021, T2 will enable BIAL to meet the demands of increasing passenger volumes and improve operational efficiency.

Under the terms of the three-year contract Unisys will manage the implementation of more than 20 new IT systems procured by BIAL for Phase 1 of T2. Unisys will also undertake systems integration of a complex network of IT and non-IT systems supporting the current infrastructure and the upcoming T2.

“T2 will infuse a much-needed volume, addressing growing passenger demand. It will transform the BLR Airport into a next-generation Airport with the latest technology, and boost capacity to serve customers over the next few decades. Unisys is well placed to support our vision by drawing on its expertise in the aviation industry, particularly in India, to manage this critical and complex end to end airport system integration engagement,” said Thomas Shimmin, chief project officer, BIAL.
