Airport two-way radio communications play an integral part of security, safety and operational duties at all airports. Radiocoms retains office and workshop facilities at Heathrow airport, providing mission-critical radio services to an abundance of clients in and around Heathrow airport. Radiocoms can provide radio equipment from all the leading manufacturers in the UK, from simple analogue, digital, Atex and headset two-way radio solutions through to complex multi-site radio systems.
Airports are exceptional places, operating almost as complete separate communities; employing tens of thousands of people; covering a vast area; and operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Heathrow airport, for example, employs nearly 80,000 people and has 75.7 million annual passengers. This vast community is the reason why reliable and effective two-way radio communications between the diverse teams working in an airport is not just important but critical to operational efficiency, business continuity, safety and security.
Airports no longer operate with isolated communication systems: recently, many airports across the world, have developed integrated systems that enable efficient communication between individuals and user groups across the entire site including:
- Airport management
- Airline agents
- Ground services
- Flight and cabin crew
- In-flight catering
- Border control
- Safety/emergency services
- Cleaning services
- Baggage handling
- Freight handling
The use of two-way radio communication in airports enables communication within and across groups, clearly and instantly, and has an important influence on the success of the airport. Airports have come to rely on the outstanding coverage, flexibility and security that digital two-way radio offers.
Radiocoms supplies professional two-way radio systems to the airport industry. If you would like to purchase, hire or lease two-way radio equipment, Radiocoms can meet your requirements.
