What makes Siemens different

At Siemens we enhance airport performance through data to make them perfect places to connect. Through intelligent infrastructure and the power of data, we create airports that offer world-class experiences — for operators, airlines, and passengers alike.

Traveling with confidence, ease and enjoyment

When selecting an airport, passengers have more choices than ever and higher expectations, too. They demand shorter waiting times; a comfortable, safe and secure environment; and a place that’s simple to navigate, where they can find their gates, baggage and amenities with ease.


Our solutions connect travelers with airlines, retail, and their surroundings to deliver a more sophisticated passenger experience.

  • Indoor Positioning Systems — use geo-location to provide passengers with route information and distances to help them get where they need to be, stress free
  • Baggage Performance Dashboard — provides better, faster data to improve decision-making and reduce wait times and congestion
  • Mobile Applications — bespoke applications with best-in-class design give passengers greater transparency into airport data so they can use their time more efficiently and increase their spending in retail areas

Optimize your processes, from end to end

Basic “lights on” operations can account for 55% of an airport’s costs. Our intelligent infrastructure and data-driven solutions can improve the efficiency of your operations so your time and capital can be invested where they matter most. We make the connections that make airports work better and smarter.

Our solutions integrate systems and collect and analyze data to provide operators with actionable insights that improve how they do business leading to:

  • Optimized connecting times
  • Maximum uptime of building systems
  • Greater reliability of baggage handling systems
  • Increased transparency across the board
  • Compliance to international standards

Additional services from Siemens, including Asset Performance Services and Condition Monitoring ensure the continuous reliability of all systems, extend asset life and reduce operating expenditures.

Holistic safety and security for people and assets

Siemens helps you maximize the safety of passengers and staff while improving overall operations and creating a world-class passenger experience. We do this by combining over 100 years of experience in fire and life safety with the latest security and digital technologies and services to create safe and secure spaces.

  • Cybersecurity — Cybersecurity safeguards the integrity of your data, reputation and business continuity.
  • Services — Digitally enhanced services and applications ensure round the clock safety of passengers.
  • Asset Tracking — Intelligent solutions such as Mobile Baggage Vision and Baggage Transfer Booster, enable the tracking of baggage across the entire value chain.

Attractive, revenue-generating environments for tenants

Up to 40% of airport revenue is generated by non-aviation sources. Leveraging an intelligent infrastructure and data-driven insights not only improves your competitiveness it also creates an attractive environment for retailers and other businesses.


Smart, mobile applications leverage indoor positioning to highlight retail and other businesses for travelers while making your airport more navigable and enjoyable. And,as a world-class leader in building technologies, Siemens provides systems and services that create safe, comfortable and energy-efficient environments that are more desirable and less costly to operate.

The ultimate asset for airlines

You can help airlines provide a passenger experience that enhances their customer service, brand, and therefore, their success. Whether an airline occupies one gate or a whole terminal, it counts on you to create a sophisticated and smart environment for their customers. The smart use of digitalization transforms your facility into an airport of choice, creating a competitive edge for the airlines that call it home.

  • Leverage internal and external sources of data, like baggage info, flight status and even weather reports, to help passengers meet schedules and make connections
  • Utilize indoor positioning and facility data to enable wayfinding apps that guide travelers to where they need to be, easily and intuitively
  • Integrate building systems with air traffic data and flight information to ensure an ideal environment: one that is safe, secure and comfortable, when passengers arrive at their gates
  • Employ asset tracking systems utilizing real-time data to create efficient and reliable baggage handling that can boost reputations while controlling costs per enplanement
  • Become more energy efficient by employing data analytics and lighting and HVAC strategies that lower consumption and costs.
