Unmatched Airport Revenue Management
at the Heart of Your Operations
Every Airport Faces Its Own Unique Challenges and Opportunities:
Visitors today are wanting more immersive and personalized experiences aligned with their travel journeys; this includes not only in the air but also on the ground. Non-aeronautical revenue sources such as smart parking, public safety, retail, concessions and retails attributes to over 40% of global airport revenue streams and that number is only expected to increase.
Airports which are unshaken by competing business structures such as ridesharing such as Uber or Lyft and online retailers are seeing better holistic experiences for their visitors ensuring they enjoy smooth transit through their facilities. At the backbone of this requires a billing system ready to tackle those most complex tasks quickly.
The Transformation of Transportation
The world knows that modern infrastructure is the path to economic growth for all countries. This is particularly visible in the
airports sector where airports are being transformed into modern full-service cities designed to capture new revenue streams
from captive passengers beyond traditional aviation services.
The increased opportunity for revenue outside of passenger traffic is fueling investment in systems that flexibly monetize aviation and non-aviation revenue including lease agreements, food and beverage concessions, shopping malls, hotels, parking and rental cars.

GRU Airport - A Real World Example
Fast Deployment, Time-to-Revenue and Government Certification Critical Requirements for Airport Billing System in Latin America
Guarulhos(GRU) International Airport, São Paulo is Latin America’s largest airport serving over 34 million passengers and 340,000 tons of cargo. GRU was incorporated by GRUPAR in 2012 after winning and signing a 20-year concession contract with the Brazilian government. GRU is investing in its infrastructure to become a modern airport city.
With the transition from a state owned airport operator to a private one, it was important for the new GRU operator to begin collecting revenue and rolling out new services at GRU as quickly as possible. GRU was faced with three specific challenges that included implementing a new billing system in a compressed timeline, supporting aviation, cargo and concession services in one platform and integrating to existing ERP systems. The move from state to private enterprise also required that the new billing system support government tariffs.
