The New Zealand firm has been selected from a global tender to upgrade Kansas City's international airport.

Gentrack will now deliver its multiple user flight information display system and airport operational database to Kansas City's airport.

“We were involved in a keenly contested global tender process and are pleased that the airport has recognised the capabilities and value that Gentrack’s integrated 20/20 Flight Information Display System will deliver,” said Nigel Farley, Airport 20/20 General Manager. “We have invested significantly in enhancing our proven FIDS and AODB capabilities and this project includes integrating our system with a large number of other systems at the airport via the 20/20 Message Broker.”

The airport began looking for a new system to support its terminal services strategy in early 2009.

“The 20/20 solution is very comprehensive and proven in over 100 airports worldwide. We understand the importance of operational efficiency for any airport and our solutions are designed to support enhanced terminal services including the delivery of consistent information regarding gates, baggage, flights and general terminal information.”

Gentrack recently signed a deal to deliver its Velocity software to Energy Response, Australia's and New Zealand's largest demand response aggregator.
