AeroCloud adds 16th US airport to its roster with Lincoln Airport, Nebraska

AeroCloud Systems (AeroCloud) 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.

LNK serves over 100,000 passengers per year. The addition of LNK brings the total number of US airports supported by AeroCloud Systems to 16. 

A combination of Flight Information Display Systems (FIDS), Gate Management Systems (GMS) and Common-Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS) is in the process of being deployed to LNK.

The AI-driven GMS will prove particularly valuable in supporting the management of the airport’s commercial aprons to enhance operational efficiency.

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.

AeroCloud’s flexible software provides a revolutionary approach to improving and developing airport operation management, utilising innovative cloud-based technology that can be implemented with little or no capital outlay. 

George Richardson, CEO and Co-Founder of AeroCloud, said: “Lincoln Airport is undergoing a huge period of growth. Induction of our totally flexible and scalable products will ensure they can achieve this whilst being time and cost-efficient.

“We are dedicated to the support of airports, and Lincoln will reap the rewards of moving away from legacy providers.”

Chad Lay, Director of Planning and Development at LNK, said: “We’re delighted to be working with AeroCloud and look forward to transforming our airport operations.

“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 their cloud-based technology systems will facilitate the seamless augmentation of our capabilities and enable us to accommodate future changes in demand requirements easily.”
