Innovation Through Mobile Technology

Auckland Airport operates one of the most successful airports in the world and consistently delivers strong performance for all its stakeholders.  Innovation is a priority as the airports expands to cater for the sustained growth in traffic and mobile technology is an important pillar for that innovation.

Secure Mobile Apps

Auckland Airport engaged Mobile Mentor in 2014 to develop its mobility strategy using the 2020 process.  This resulted in a roadmap of initiatives to first secure the current mobile environment using AirWatch and second to accelerate mobile innovation using BlinkMobile for app development and iProximity for beacon technology.  

Event-Driven Mobility

All devices are secured using a locally hosted AirWatch private cloud environment which is hosted by Revera and managed by Mobile Mentor.  The BlinkMobile Platform has been integrated to iProximity to enable “event driven” mobility such as smart parking notifications.  Apps developed for the Auckland Airport staff can easily be deployed, updated and supported over the air using the AirWatch platform.
