The airport is hoping the contract will support its planned growth - it is investing millions in a programme aimed at increasing capacity, and improving punctuality, services and security.

The desktop and data centre services contract with systems integrator SCC covers the support, maintenance and management of the PC infrastructure, data centre monitoring, an ISO 20000-1 certified service desk, and a move from Windows XP to Windows 7.
