Beirut International Airport installs Indect's UPSOLUT parking guidance system

Posted 30 May 2019 · Add Comment

Indect Eletronics and Distribution has installed its UPSOLUT parking guidance system at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport in Lebanon.

 

142 camera sensors, monitoring 640 parking spaces, have been installed at this busy commercial hub located 9 km from the center of Beirut in Lebanon.

“Although relatively small in size, the Beirut-Rafic Hariri International airport is extremely important to the people of Lebanon, as it is the only operating commercial airport in the country,” said Ingo Herwich, chief operations officer at Indect Electronics and Distribution.

“Often, the most noticeable improvements in traffic congestion and parking efficiency can be seen when parking guidance is installed in compact parking garages. This is because space availability is in such high demand that drivers will resort to circling the garage or parking in restricted areas, such as time-limited or ADA spaces,” said Herwich.

“However, once people can clearly see the number of vacant spaces on each level and aisle and are quickly and easily guided to the first available spot, the effect is almost instantaneous,” he said.

The airport currently services 59 passenger airlines and nine cargo lines, which account for 8.8 million passengers, 98,200 metric tons of cargo and a total of almost 74,000 aircraft movements annually.

The system has proven so successful, the airport has plans to install additional sensors in the remaining garage levels over the next few years.

Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport has become the 16th international airport to choose an Indect parking guidance solution.
