Mumbai International Airport Readies For Take Off Following Successful Testing Of Core Operational Systems By Unisys

BLUE BELL, Pa., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that its Indian subsidiary has successfully completed testing of the core airport operational systems implemented at Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL)'s new Terminal 2 as part of the airport's modernization program to cater to India's growing aviation industry.

Mumbai International Airport is the primary international airport in Mumbai and is the second busiest airport in India in terms of passenger traffic 1. According to the Airports Council International, more than 30 million international passengers traveled via Mumbai Airport in 2012, up six percent from 2011. The new Terminal 2 building, designed to serve both international and domestic operations, went live in February 2014.

A major supplier of airport integration services, Unisys was commissioned to conduct Master Integration Testing services to verify that all systems implemented in the new terminal operate in a seamless manner. Master Integration Testing is a group-based test where specific IT systems that support core airport business processes are grouped together and tested to verify they support routine airport operations scenarios as well as validate the systems integration and usability.

Unisys worked with the MIAL project team to design test scripts based on real-life scenarios, which were then executed under the supervision of Unisys and MIAL. As part of the project, Unisys tested 21 systems across 12 vendors and three airlines.

"The underlying IT systems in an airport facilitate passenger traffic, coordinate flights, allocate resources such as gates and baggage belts, support government agency requirements for immigration and customs, and provide up to date information to run the business of the airport," said Mr Kamaruzaman B Shaari, General Manager – Project IT, Mumbai International Airport. "These are all critical components of airport operations. We chose Unisys to test our systems based on its track record in other successful airport projects globally."

Mr Sury Chavali, head of the aviation practice for Unisys Asia Pacific, said: "We are thrilled to have been selected for this important engagement. Effective testing of airport mission-critical systems requires an in-depth understanding of airport operations, standard operating procedures, and how the underlying systems support the airport operations. With our experience in airport businesses, we can draw upon tried and tested methodologies that we have successfully used in other major Asian airports such as Beijing Capital International Airport, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Chengdu Airport in China,and Delhi International Airport in India."
