an affiliate of VINCI Airports and the developer and operator of
the Kingdom’s three international airports (PNH, REP and KOS), is to enhance
operations with Amadeus Flow.
Amadeus’ fully integrated cloud platform for airport passenger
services will help the airports to rapidly deploy new passenger handling capacity via
the internet as needed.
With this new approach, Cambodia
Airports can also temporarily reallocate resources not in use. One
example would be by redistributing airline services between
terminals, because its check-in desks and gates will no longer be
tied to legacy fixed networks at specific points in the terminal.
With Amadeus Flow, Cambodia Airports will harness the cloud to
deliver passenger services from any location it chooses.
Amadeus Flow’s open architecture lays the
foundation to deploy innovations more easily, such as biometrics,
contactless and self-service technologies as required. All of
which can help to meet passenger demands for safer and more
hygienic travel, whilst delivering an excellent passenger
Hervé Bonin, General Manager, Phnom Penh Int’l
Airport, said, “Passengers expect a smooth experience, and moving to the cloud with Amadeus means we can deliver that now and
into the future. Sharing our long-term vision, Amadeus is the
right partner to take care of this complexity behind the scenes so
we can easily deploy new innovations that place our customers,
passengers and airlines, at the very heart of our airport model.
Combining this leading technology with recent key investments in
facilities upgrades, our platforms are well prepared to welcome
the next growth stage.”
Cambodia Airports is the
largest airport group in Cambodia, with its three major hubs in
Phnom Penh (PNH), Siem Reap (REP), and Sihanoukville (KOS).
As a developing
nation, tourism is a key industry for Cambodia, contributing more
than $4 billion to the economy in 2019.
Sarah Samuel, Head of Airport IT, APAC,
Amadeus, said, “Airports are at a crossroads when it comes to
investment in technology to meet the needs of travelers: should
they embrace cloud computing or continue to do things how they’ve
always been done? At Amadeus we believe the airport industry has
reached a tipping point, with the pandemic significantly
accelerating the move to the cloud. This provides a number of
opportunities for airports as we apply new innovations like
biometrics to rebuild a better industry. We are delighted to
partner with Cambodia Airports and look forward to working closely
to realize their strategic vision and to address new challenges
and opportunities over the long term.”
