Every year, the aviation industry serves over 3.5 billion passengers and carries more than 50 million tons of cargo. And these numbers keep growing, which means that airports must increase their capacity to meet today’s requirements and adapt to today’s customer expectations.
Airports have become more than places where travelers arrive and depart. As global connectivity hubs, they drive innovation and technological developments, and they stimulate social and economic activity in their local communities. Our projects range from strategic consulting services to project management, from microsimulation models to airport master plans, from terminal expansion to carbon accreditation, and from rehabilitating runways to implementing baggage handling systems.
Asset Management Tailored to Aviation Needs
As airport owners and operators worldwide face unprecedented challenges with capacity constraints, financial challenges, and aging aviation infrastructure, the ability to think outside the box and to create new forward-looking solutions is essential. Airports must also meet constantly changing service level standards, passenger preferences, technology, safety and sustainability.
Drawing on the latest technologies and innovations, we offer support to our clients ranging from strategic consulting, private financing initiatives, alternative energy solutions and planning/environmental services to design and construction-phase services to operations and maintenance. We also provide program and construction management skills to oversee entire projects or capital programs.
In addition to airside and landside aviation facilities, WSP offers the full array of services for the facilities upon which airports depend, such as central utility plants and parking garages, in-line explosive detection systems, passenger security screening checkpoints, as well as highway and transit systems to and within airports.
