Bahrain Airport Company (BAC) has signed partnership agreement with American defence and technology giant Lockheed Martin to implement a route analysis tool at Bahrain International Airport, Arabian Aerospace reported. The technology, Beontra B Route Development, will allow BAC to calculate, analyse and present high-quality route cases to airlines, while being able to re-calculate and amend on-demand. The project is the first in the Middle East for the route development product and follows Lockheed Martin's acquisition of Beontra in March this year. The technology is just one component of Lockheed Martin's comprehensive suite of aviation technology solutions, which includes products for air traffic management and tools for airport operations management. "It is a special honour for Lockheed Martin to welcome Bahrain International Airport as the first airport in the Middle East using B Route Development," said Christian Roth, CEO of Beontra. "We are excited to support BAC in further developing Bahrain's route network and assisting them in the transformation of their passenger experience."
