What makes the European airport market very special? To get a better understanding we asked ADB SAFEGATE´s Regional Sales Director Europe, Regardt Willer. In this interview Regardt explains about the biggest challenges and also about solutions to help mitigate the effects. Because of geographical constraints, European airports do not always have the freedom of expanding by means of geographical expansion. Instead airports often need to optimize operations. ADB SAFEGATE’s contribution is predominantly based around providing the airport with the tools to aid decision-making and other tools to speed up the processes at the airport.
