thyssenkrupp to Keep Improving Flight Connecting Times
at Toronto Pearson International Airport

thyssenkrupp has finalized a 5 year contract with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to maintain more than 350 elevator and escalator units installed at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The company was awarded this contract thanks to its innovative technologies and high-quality products and services which focus on improving mobility in our globalized world.

An example of thyssenkrupp’s innovation capacity is the high-speed moving walkway technology that provides a totally new and efficient solution for the mobility challenges of airports with high passenger numbers. Two units went into operation for public use at the beginning of 2009. Since then, more than 19 million passengers have used the service during their connections through the airport, with both units achieving availability service rates above 95%. The unique high-speed moving walk bridges the gap between conventional moving walks and traditional transportation, such as buses or automated people movers. It provides safe and smooth transport, enabling passengers to reach a 12 km/h speed by walking, while offering the airport the capacity to potentially transport more than 14,000 people per hour.

thyssenkrupp continuously invests in technology that improves public transportation, increases accessibility and enables passengers to travel more quickly. Building up on the success of the accelerating moving walkways installed in the Toronto airport, thyssenkrupp developed a new generation with ACCEL, which is available now. It provides an efficient solution to the dominating global challenges of urbanization. It further alleviates traffic congestion, and reduces connection times between gates in airport terminals by up to 70%. Applying linear motor technology from the Transrapid magnetic train, ACCEL can transport as many passengers as typical fully automated cabin systems.

tyssenkrupp Airport Systems S.A. will exhibit at inter airport Europe, from October 10-13, 2017, in Munich Germany.
