Sharjah Airport selects Aertec to optimise operations management

Aertec, an international company specialising in the aerospace and defence industry and in the airport sector, is executing the initial phase for the implementation of CDMC (Airport Collaborative Decision-Making Centre) at Sharjah Airport (United Arab Emirates) and as part of Sharjah Airport Expansion Programme.

The objective is to improve real-time management of airport operations, optimising coordination and efficiency of resources and is part of the overall Airport services upgrades.

Positioned in the global airport industry as one of the engineering firms with the strongest aeronautical focus, Aertec has been selected by Sharjah Airport to develop the first phase of this program. In these first weeks of work, the Spanish multinational will analyse how operations and opportunity of improvement are managed at the Emirati airport, in order to propose improvements by updating or modifying procedures and defining a system that reduces response times and/or enables real-time resolution of incidents that may arise at the airport.

This project adds to the knowledge and experience that Aertec already brings in similar programs and in the optimisation of airport operations, thanks to its own innovation development initiatives and new technologies aimed at achieving efficient and safe management of airport processes through comprehensive technological solutions.

"The Sharjah Airport project strengthens Aertec's position in the region, where our activity continues to grow in the field of airport consulting and design services", explained Yousef Al Jaouni, Director of Operations and Head of Business Development at Aertec for the Middle East. "In fact, during the pandemic we were able to maintain our workload and even grow it, due to the type of services we offer; and this is translating not only into a greater number of projects but also into the growth of our office in the Middle East."

Since 2019, the international firm operates a commercial office in the United Arab Emirates from which it manages different projects, especially in the area of airports, in countries such as Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

From this regional office, in addition to projects in the airport sector, Aertec explores and manages other market opportunities to expand its sphere of action in sectors such as aerospace or defence, with significant growth prospects in the Middle East.
