News: Reflex secure airport contract


Rotherham-based Reflex Systems has successfully installed safety and security at the new £11m passenger terminal redevelopment at Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBIA).

The leading independent security specialist based in Hellaby has worked with LBIA since 2005 and the bulk of the latest project was taken up with upgrades. CCTV has been upgraded for the entire site in passenger and airside areas, while the access control was overhauled.

The new solution includes the installation of the very latest access control systems, providing a high level of traceability as well as sophisticated management information and auditing tools. Enhancements were also made to CCTV in car parks and other external areas.

Tim Beynon, Head of Airport Development and Planning at Leeds Bradford Airport said: "Reflex understands our environments and the demands upon us. As a border control authority we have to work to strict government guidelines and if systems fail for any reason, our airport closes and the knock-on effects can be significant both commercially and from a public perception perspective.

"Partnering with a company like Reflex is critical to the smooth day-to-day running of the airport. And we have been pleased with how the relationship has developed into a genuine partnership over the years."

Steve Ward, operations director at Reflex, added: "As with all airports, there was a clear need for best in class safety and security systems, in respect of strategic border controls. Additionally, enhanced general security and safe provisions for the millions of passengers who pass through LBA every year would bring the airport up-to-date with the latest technologies and make it one of the best equipped transport hubs in the country.

"Reflex contributes regularly to the planning and maintenance regime at the airport, so our contract represents much more of a partnering relationship than a traditional supplier-client relationship. We feed our sector expertise into the management system at LBIA and for their part they keep us abreast of the latest national and global changes that require action in terms of systems and planning."

LBIA is one of the UK's fastest growing airports. The redeveloped terminal was officially opened in December and includes a new larger departure lounge, a range of new food and beverage units, a major walk-through Tax and Duty Free store and additional retail brands.
