Allama Iqbal International Airport (LHE) is the second largest civilian airport by traffic in Pakistan, moving an annual passenger traffic of 6 million.
HUB Parking partner ASG Systems was chosen to upgrade the parking system of the airport, and keep the pace of LHE modernization.
In fact, Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has recently launched the expansion of the terminal building and the increase of gates from 7 to 22: the annual passenger capacity of Lahore Airport is thus increased to 20 million, which shall cater to the passenger load for the next 15 to 20 years.
How about parking? In that case, the expansion aims at maximizing the capacity during peak hours, by building two new basements with 4 access lanes, 3200 stalls and an internal parking guidance system – integrated with JMS management software, just as the LPR camera-based technology.
During the low-traffic covid-stricken period, parking transits reached 2000-2500 per day, and approx. 60,000 per month; once air travel picks up, the volume is expected to increase up to 150,000 transits per month. The main parking challenge for the airport management was to manage these transactions in a structured, digital, and more efficient way - replacing handwritten tickets and uncontrolled traffic.
Challenge accepted, and successfully won by the combination of services, advanced software and reliable equipment proposed by ASG Systems, with HUB’s integrated solution.
