Neelam Mathews - IHS Jane's Airport Review
27 October 2014
Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) intends to introduce beacon geolocation technology at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
"We're at an advanced stage of implementation," MIAL CEO Rajeev Jain said on 16 October at the Aviation Information & Communication Technologies Forum in Jaipur.
IHS Jane's understands that the Request for Qualification for a pilot project will be made in the first quarter of 2015. If successful, it will be replicated in the GVK consortium-owned Bangalore International Airport.
Beacons can track passengers inside the airport within a radius of 50 m in real time. They can help in delivering personalised messages to travellers as they enter business lounges and help airports identify staff movements.
