Airport Cloud Migration Journeys

Learn best practices for migrating to the cloud to improve resiliency, increase security, and reduce costs.

Airport transformation is a flywheel driven by the passenger experience
Airports worldwide want to streamline the passenger experience, improve operational efficiency, and meet their sustainability targets. They are turning to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the secure, reliable data and IT infrastructure needed to accelerate their digital transformation. Using artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things (IoT) sensors, computer vision, and data analytics, they are able to implement solutions to deliver connected experiences, improve disruption management, and increase non-aeronautical revenue.

Data driven decisions
Airports need to unlock their data, improve collaboration with business partners, and understand the passenger experience. AWS data analytics and artificial intelligence services give airports the ability to create, access, analyze, forecast, and share information.
Innovate at speed
Airports want to innovate with their technology and business partners. AWS increases agility by reducing the cost and time to try new technologies and implement solutions. Airport technology staff can focus on innovation instead of the undifferentiated heavy lifting of managing infrastructure and data centers.
Security & reliability
Airport technology infrastructure is critical to flight and passenger operations. With AWS, airports can improve the security, resiliency, and availability of their IT infrastructure. With pay-as-you-go pricing, airports can reduce costs and reinvest in enhancing the passenger experience.
