“Airport IT system rely on multiple complex applications and services running seamlessly. Getronics has a wealth of experience in helping organisations transition their IT, many in separation situations similar to our own.”
– Chris Tames, Group Head of IT at AGS Airports Limited
AGS Airports consists of three airports located in the United Kingdom: Aberdeen Airport, Glasgow Airport and Southampton Airport.
AGS Airports together handled 13 million passengers in 2014, with each of the three sites being in the top 10 for growth in the UK market, with Aberdeen Airport the world’s busiest heliport, serving the UK’s Oil Industry with over 500,000 passengers in 2014. The airports also act as business parks, hosting many client companies.
With the three airports being separated from Heathrow Airport Holdings and becoming an independent entity, AGS faced the challenge of a separation project. This would include requiring an entirely new and unified IT infrastructure for all three airports, with associated IT support services.
