British Airways is using a smart proximity access control solution from SALTO Systems to provide advanced security management in the airline’s state-of-the-art passenger facility at Terminal 5 Heathrow.

London Heathrow is one of the world’s busiest international airports and features modern state-of-the-art passenger and commercial facilities as well as extensive aircraft operation areas. Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and servicing over 65 million passengers per year, an average of over 180,000 passengers per day. British Airways is the only airline to operate from Terminal 5, which consists of three buildings – the main terminal plus two satellites, Terminals 5B and 5C, linked by an automated transit system, and required a highly secure and reliable solution that could be customised to meet their specific environment.
