Published: March 22, 2011
A consortium led by France’s Capgemini has won a five-year contract worth about GBP£100 million (USD$ 163 million) to provide IT services at BAA’s London Heathrow and other UK airports, Capgemini said on Tuesday.
Capgemini will be responsible for BAA’s core IT services on a day-to-day basis, including applications, infrastructure and projects, for some 10,000 users, it said in a statement.
“Improved real-time information will help BAA keep passengers and airlines better informed about their flights, allowing for quicker turnaround of planes and better recovery from problems as they arise,” Capgemini said.
The consortium includes SITA, Atkins, Computacenter and Amor Group, Capgemini added.
BAA, which is majority owned by Spanish infrastructure group Ferrovial, owns and operates London Heathrow, London Stansted, Southampton, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh airports.
