Delivering accurate, immediate information to passengers

Through the implementation of RapidFIDS, communications can be displayed across flights, check-in, gates, visual paging, carousels and more.


Unprecedented operational efficiency

During the delivery of RapidFIDS we were engaged to deliver RapidAIMS in addition to several subsystems for the airport, including; the Gate Management System, Common Use Terminal Equipment, ACARS, Airline Systems and the Baggage Handling System. The installation of Daifuku’s integrated digital systems positioned YVR at the forefront of airport systems management technology, strategically enhancing operational efficiencies while improving the passenger experience.
