As one of the global leaders in the elevator and escalator industry, KONE adds value to the lifecycle of any building, including the airport terminal.
The company is exhibiting at this year’s ACI Airport Exchange, where it will introduce the KONE 24/7 Connected Services for airports, a service that offers customers new levels of safety, transparency and intelligence for maintenance services, and will showcase its vision on what tomorrow’s people flow will look like.
Joakim Modeen, Head of Service Business, KONE, says: “At KONE, we believe connectivity is an enabler to bring better services to our customers, our employees and especially our people in the field. At the end of the day, we want to bring more insight, data, and tools which ultimately meet our customers’ changing needs and help them succeed in their business challenges. For airports, obviously this means creating a better people flow experience for their passengers.”
KONE played an integral part in the development of the people flow in Avinor Oslo Airport, host of this year’s ACI Airport Exchange. In total, 69 different pieces of equipment have been integrated in the new Oslo Airport, including elevators, escalators and autowalks.
Erik Johnson, Managing Director, KONE, adds: “There are certain elements which are vitally important to consider in airports in general, such as efficiency and safety, and Oslo was no exception, having the strictest requirements for environment and space efficiency as well.”
Johnson will take part in the Avinor and Oslo Terminal 2 Deep Dive Session, where he will discuss in-depth the expansion at Oslo Airport. He says: “We are here to celebrate the new Oslo Airport. We are proud to be part of this success story and that we have a great relationship with Avinor.”
