Edinburgh Airport’s new owner is attempting to grow the business, with a multi-million pound IT outsourcing deal the first of many investments planned.
The airport will spend £3m over five years with service provider Onyx to provide its IT infrastructure. This includes dual datacentres, high-speed networking and cloud services. Onyx will provide 24-hour IT support.
Graeme Agnew, head of IT at Edinburgh Airport, said the deal with Onyx was the first of a number of major capital investments under new ownership. “It is vital for us to have the IT capacity to support business growth, and the ability to implement the best technological solutions and quality of service for our passengers and airlines.”
He added that Onyx’s presence in Edinburgh was important in its supplier selection. Onyx Group has 10 sites throughout the UK, including London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Teesside and Sheffield.
