New Airport Takes Flight With 'FIDS'

With airline negotiations well underway, Australia’s first airport to be built in 50 years - Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport (BWW) in Toowoomba, has chosen a Queensland-based company Intersystems for its Flight Information Display System (FIDS).
BRISBANE, Australia - March 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Intersystems CEO Bruce Allen said he was delighted to able to provide the company’s RapidFIDS and RapidADS systems to the new airport.

"The Brisbane West Wellcamp project was important for us to secure because of its uniqueness in the Australian context and its proximity to our head office," said Mr Allen.

He said the visionary project developed by the Wagner family, looked set to be completed by the end of the year.

“The runway is already taking shape and we’re looking forward to delivering the project this year. With Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport's first flights expected in October, the airport is undoubtedly going to be a key infrastructure asset for Toowoomba, Queensland and Australia as a whole."

RapidFIDS would drive the Flight Information Display System at Wellcamp Airport, including: arrival and departure listing displays, check-in displays, gate displays and baggage carousel displays. The FIDS solution had been designed to scale with the airport as it grew in size and capacity, explained Mr Allen.

He said RapidADS would provide the airport with a dynamic and versatile Airport Advertising and Content Management System that would be integrated into the FIDS display network as well as dedicated displays which would transform the existing FIDS displays into a powerful advertising medium.

Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport General Manager Mr Phil Gregory said construction of the airport was on track to be fully operational later this year.

"The runway is almost complete and our passenger terminal is now well underway so we are looking forward to seeing the first flights appearing on our new FIDS displays in the near future," said Mr Gregory.
