Airbus links-up Chinese airports


Airbus has provided a TETRA system to Chengdu Tianfu International Airport in China.

The network - which includes the company’s TB3 base stations - has enabled the site to interconnect with Chengdu’s Shuangliu International Airport, which has been using its own Airbus TETRA solution since 2013.

Speaking of the roll-out, a spokesperson for the company said: “The 800MHz radio communication interconnection between both airports will allow smoother collaboration between staff. It will also allow safer and seamless logistics, while ensuring the safety of passengers, visitors, and employees in both premises.

“This marks another interconnectivity achievement in China following Beijing Daxing international airport [connecting with] Beijing Capital at the end of 2019.”

According to Airbus, Chengdu Tianfu is one of the five biggest international airports in China, processing over 50 million passengers in 2019.
