Lille Airport entrusts video surveillance to Axis Communications

Lille Airport entrusts video surveillance to Axis Communications

Mission

Lille Airport is at the heart of the Flanders/Belgium Euroregion, which is home to almost 6 million people. Its proximity to Lille — the capital of France’s numberthree region — gives it great accessibility. Since 2007, the airport’s traffic has increased 70 percent to 1.78 million passengers in 2016. Within this context, through SOGAREL (the Lille region’s airport management company), the airport launched an expansion and modernization plan for its video surveillance system to provide safety and security to the site’s growing number of passengers.


Solution

Lille Airport implemented a solution that allows it to cover the interior and exterior zones of the airport to monitor the vast majority of passenger traffic zones. Thanks to the advice and assistance of integrator Nextiraone, the airport chose Axis Communications' technologies known for their robustness and ease of use.

In just two years, more than 100 Axis cameras were installed. To start with, they are deployed at the entry and exit of a new parking facility and a passenger screening zone (test phase), then on the tarmacs, in the passenger terminal, other parking lots and finally in the freight area.

Lille Airport now benefits from a comprehensive system of 160 cameras, 70 percent of which were installed in two years. The improvements are significant, both in terms of the video surveillance system’s maintenance and convenience and in the time saved in dealing with offenses (from several hours to days with the old system to a few minutes to two or three hours maximum today).  

Result

Lille Airport now benefits from a comprehensive system of 160 cameras. The improvements are significant, both in terms of the video surveillance system’s maintenance and convenience and in the time saved in dealing with offenses (from several hours to days with the old system to a few minutes to two or three hours maximum today). The solution has even helped optimize the airport’s operations management after certain issues were observed.
