Barcelona, 11th October 2011 – ADELTE Airport Technologies (“ADELTE”), a Spanish engineering company based in Barcelona, presents its new brand, four product groups and two innovative passenger terminal solutions at the world’s premier airport exhibition, Inter Airport Europe, and at the simultaneously running Smart Airports Conference, both held in Munich, Germany from today until October 14th 2011.

ADELTE Airport Technologies, founded in 2011, is part of the ADELTE Group, which also comprises the engineering companies TEAM Ports & Maritime and TEAM Ingenieria del Transporte. ADELTE Group was created by a group of private investors who two decades previously had founded TEAM Tecnologia Europea Aplicada al Movimiento.


The ADELTE brand has been developed and designed for the strategic re-launch of the group’s new range of airport products. The brand name is derived from ADvance & ELevate TEchnologies and illustrates in particular the beginning of a new era in the design and manufacture of airport Passenger Boarding Bridges, one of the four new products groups ADELTE is presenting at Inter Airport.
The group’s two decades of unrivalled expertise and experience in the design and manufacture of passenger access systems is demonstrated by TEAM Ports & Maritime, the worldwide leader in custom-made Passenger Boarding Bridges for cruise and ferry terminals.

Passenger Boarding Bridges

ADELTE now offers state-of-the-art Passenger Boarding Bridges for airports. ADELTE’s range includes made-to measure Apron Drives, the perfect solution for busy airports with a high operational turnover, and ADELTE’s 380 Apron Drive, specifically designed to meet the challenge of boarding the next generation of aircraft.

Ground Support Equipment

ADELTE now provides airports with advanced Ground Support Equipment (GSE) designed to significantly enhance operational performance on the ramp and around the Passenger Boarding Bridge. ADELTE’s exclusive products include our Zephir series, pre-conditioned air units specially designed for heating and cooling stationed aircrafts in all climatic conditions, and the Aeolius range, which permit connection to a PCA unit to supply continuous clean precond

itioned air directly to

a stationed aircraft. ADELTE also offers the Fontus, which provides a reliable and consistent supply of potable water to stationed aircrafts and the Consus Auxiliary Hose Trolley system for the supply of preconditioned air to MD-80 aircraft.

Aircraft Recovery Products

ADELTE’s Aircraft recovery products ensure rapid, safe and cost-effective aircraft recovery. With increased traffic, quicker turnaround and heavier passenger flow, it is essential that damaged or incapacitated aircraft are moved quickly and safely from runways to avoid costly delays. ADELTE’s range of Aircraft Recovery Products include aircraft lifting systems, dollies, wing and fusel support and trailers, all built to exacting specifications and incorporating the latest engineering technology to ensure speed, safety and security.

Passenger Terminal Solutions

ADELTE is dedicated to the application of new information technology to airports in order to improve operations and logistics at passenger terminals and on the apron. ADELTE’s Passenger Terminal Solutions take airport operations to the next level, bringing smart technology to the challenge of running busy airport terminals. These solutions include APRONAUT, the PBB Docking Simulator and ServiKart, a Baggage Cart Management System.


At Inter Airport Europe and the Smart Airports Conference, ADELTE will present the following two innovative patented Passenger Terminal Solutions: APRONAUT and ServiKart.
APRONAUT is the world’s first software-based PBB docking simulator designed to give personnel experience and skills in authentic docking situations. APRONAUT simulation offers a rich multimedia and interactive experience, providing a virtual environment where an individual can make mistakes without consequences, allowing operators to become more confident and familiar with the apron environment and the necessary PBB docking equipment. APRONAUT can be customized to conform to the specific airport where the simulators are used, including the taxiway configuration and for all types of aircraft in operation.

ServiKart is a complete baggage cart management system that uses the latest radio frequency tracking technology to monitor individual baggage carts, giving airports the capacity to trace and control the movement of every cart in real-time, ensuring vastly improved passenger service and significant cost savings. ServiKart’s combined hardware and software system is engineered to deliver 100% accurate tracking and location data for each baggage cart inside and outside the passenger terminal – in real-time.
