ADELTE wins contract for 12 airports in India

Comment on this article

ADELTE Airport Technologies is installing state-of-the-art passenger boarding bridges at 12 of India’s most important airports.

By 2020, India is expected to be the world’s third largest aviation market, with US$15trn's worth of improvements to be made to the country's airport infrastructures in the intervening years. ADELTE is playing a key role in this modernisation by designing, manufacturing and installing 24 passenger boarding bridges for 12 airports across the country, as an initial quota.

These are electromechanical units with glass tunnels, equipped with the latest Visual Docking Guidance Systems. These advanced bridges will enable rapid boarding and disembarking and will significantly improve the safety and comfort of passenger at Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Calicut, Coimbatore, Goa, Guwahati, Jammu, Lucknow, Mangalore, Trichy, Trivandrum and Vadodara airports.

The first three apron drive boarding bridges of the project are being installed at Goa airport and should be instated this autumn.

“The Airport Authority of India has commissioned ADELTE, relying on both our cutting-edge technology and our expertise in managing complex projects,” commented Raimon Albiol, Managing Director of ADELTE. “This is the beginning of a long-term relationship, working together as part of the Make in India initiative.”

ADELTE has partnered with local companies to manufacture mainly telescopic tunnels, in accordance with the government’s "Make in India" initiative, which encourages both international and domestic companies to manufacture their products in India.

“We are very proud to work with the AAI on this airport infrastructure development project and to contribute to the modernisation of boarding operations throughout the country and the whole region as we are already working on similar projects in Iraq, Iran and Pakistan,” concluded Albiol.
