Smarter Airports A/S was launched in October 2020 and is a joint venture owned by IT company Netcompany and Copenhagen Airports A/S (CPH). Now, the competition authorities have approved the company. This means, among other things, that the company will now start establishing partnerships with other airports around the world. At the same time, the platform has been named AIRHART.
“AIRHART will enable airports to respond to the accelerating pace of business changein the aviation industry. At the same time, the platform is an opportunity to utilize data to innovate the way we will operate an efficient and sustainable airport, both now and in the future. Therefore, the use and integration of data will be an essential part of the new platform,” says Christian Poulsen, COO & CIO, Head of Infrastructure, Operation & Services at CPH.
AIRHART – a tribute to Amelia Earhart
