Unisys Supports Expansion And Modernization Of China's Chengdu Airport By Integrating Key Operational Systems In Just 12 Months

BEIJING, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that its Unisys China subsidiary has successfully completed a year-long effort to provide, implement and integrate core airport operational systems at China's Chengdu Airport to support the expansion and modernization of the airport to meet growing passenger volumes.

Chengdu Airport is the busiest airport in Western China, and China's fifth busiest airport overall. According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Chengdu Airport recorded 12.6 percent growth in annual passenger numbers from 2010 to 2011 1

As part of the project, Unisys integrated more than 20 disparate systems and designed and implemented the core operational systems for the airport including, among others, the airport operational database (AODB), flight information management system, airport middleware and flight information query system. The new AODB was integrated with the global Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network (AFTN).

Unisys also led the overall systems integration and interface design, testing, and commissioning for the new Terminal 2 and the integration of the new AODB with Terminal 1. Unisys will continue to provide maintenance for five years.

Unisys was subcontracted to the project's prime contractor Sinotec, a Unisys partner in aviation industry in the Asia Pacific region.

"As one of China's fastest growing airports, we require a highly efficient, flexible IT system to support the expected increase in passenger numbers and ensure a positive experience for air travellers," said Mr Wu Ding, the Chief Engineer of Chengdu Airport Expansion Project Headquarters. "The Unisys solution gives us the operational platform we need to move confidently into the future."

Mr Sury Chavali, head of the aviation practice for Unisys Asia Pacific, said: "Chengdu Airport's expansion is in line with the Government's recent intention to make airline services available to 89 percent of the Chinese population by 2020 2. As demand grows for both international business and domestic leisure travel, airports such as Chengdu will rely on integrated IT systems to offer travellers an enjoyable and efficient experience. We are proud of our work for Chengdu Airport and look forward to its continued success."

Unisys is a leading systems integrator in the Asia Pacific and global airport industry. Recent projects include Terminal 3 at Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA), the world's largest terminal building, which was completed in time for the 2008 Olympic Summer Games; Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, also in China; and the new Terminal 3 at Delhi International Airport (DIAL) made ready for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India.
