Trusted and sustainable aviation

Building a sustainable and trusted future through innovation

For over 40 years Fujitsu has been a trusted aviation technology partner helping the airline industry to define, design, deliver and operate through-life services that connect people around the globe. Within the UK we work with some of the largest airports and global carriers, enabling them to reshape their aviation infrastructure and digitally transform to a more sustainable, cost-efficient, quieter, cleaner, and smarter future.

Through developing technologies such as automation, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, 5G and Social Digital Twin we are working with large airports to help them become more efficient, drive sustainability, business value and create new services. We partner with specialist aviation technology suppliers to offer a broad range of solutions that can deliver digital transformation at airports, improving passenger experience, minimising delays and simplifying the journey of arriving at an airport through to boarding a flight.

Building a sustainable and trusted future through innovation

We know the answer to every problem doesn’t automatically need to be technology; our expertise in designing human centric solutions ensures the solutions deployed at airports are focussed on enabling employees to deliver services efficiently and providing services that are simple for passengers to use. That means effective use of technology and ensuring it is easy to adopt its use. Designing services that focus on people builds trust and creates an environment everyone can enjoy.

We are working hard with our partners to help UK airports recover and build back with trusted and sustainable aviation underpinned by innovative technology.
