Innovation centre to be jointly opened by Bangalore International Airport and AWS

Expected to open this year at the city airport, the innovation centre, will focus on driving digital innovation for the airport and enhancing passenger experience

To drive the development and adoption of digital solutions in aviation, Bangalore International Airport – operator of Kempegowda International Airport has partnered with Amazon Web Services to establish a joint innovation centre.

Expected to open this year at the city airport, the innovation centre, will focus on driving digital innovation for the airport and enhancing passenger experience, according to a statement.

Using a combination of technologies such as cloud computing, block-chain, Internet of Things, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, and augmented and virtual reality, the collaboration will help strengthen BIAL digital roadmap and develop customer solutions.

Established out of China, this is the first such innovation centre by AWS and it is the first one dedicated to innovating in the aviation industry.

“Modern air travel has been disrupted by the pandemic and is ripe for innovation. We are excited to strengthen our engagement with BIAL to help them explore new possibilities with digital technologies, develop enhanced experience for travellers, and realise the vision of a digitalised and smart airport”, said Rahul Sharma, president of Public Sector – Amazon Web Services, AWS India and South Asia.

Through a dedicated accelerator program called Start-up Valley, the innovation centre will also enable start-ups to drive innovation in aviation, smart infrastructure, utilities, and mobility. Programmatic support such as mentorship, technical training, and access to an investor pool will be provided by AWS.

“We are thrilled to extend our relationship with AWS to power two of our important focus areas – strengthen our digital roadmap towards making Bangalore Airport the best destination airport for travellers by leveraging the power of cloud computing and digital technologies, and create an environment for start-ups to innovate and advance in aviation and related domains”, said Hari Marar, managing director & CEO of BIAL.

Through both public and private partnerships, AWS has six innovation centres in China.
