Cork Airport


As part of the modernisation programme, the Skidata® system was installed onto a new virtualised IT network within the car park environment to ensure resilience and security as well as fast data and voice communication transfer. The new Skidata® system has been integrated with Advam's pre-booking system and also offers 2D/QR barcode reading on all public entry and exit Power.gate columns to allow future ticketless access technologies.

Niall Mac Carthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said: “At Cork Airport we aim to ensure excellent customer service across our services. Our new Skidata® car parking system offers users a streamlined, secure service. Booking your parking has never been easier at Cork Airport and we have introduced a pricing structure to support this with customers able to park for as little as €5 per day. We have invested in this infrastructure as we continue to ensure we offer a world-class, award-winning, passenger experience.”

Phase 2 of the system upgrade will include integration with Advam chip and pin credit card payment at all pay stations as well all public entry and exit lanes with chip/contactless credit card payments.

"This was a great example of teams from across the business coming together to deliver a quality product that has a direct impact on the public's perception of Cork Airport. Car parks tend to be the first and last touch point with the airport for a lot of the travelling public and are hugely important in ensuring a positive customer experience."
