WPS and Viggo to provide smart parking system for expanding airport in the Netherlands


At Intertraffic Amsterdam, international transportation technology company Dynniq’s parking division, WPS Parking Systems, has signed a cooperation agreement with aviation services provider Viggo for parking services at Lelystad Airport in the Netherlands.

WPS has been commissioned to supply, install and maintain the new parking management system at the expanding airport in Flevoland. Viggo will, among other things, take care of the parking management on behalf of the Lelystad Airport authorities.

In order to take some of the pressure off Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport, Lelystad Airport is transforming from an airfield for general aviation (smaller planes) to a full international airport. Part of this project is the expansion of the airport’s existing parking capacity to 3,317 parking spaces, with the deployment of a correspondingly modern parking management system.

The new parking system for Lelystad Airport will include WSP’s latest developments in parking management software. Due to the large growth of the airport, WPS will install its ParkID software platform and ancillary equipment with the aim of improving customers’ journeys, combined with Viggo’s efficient parking management services.

WPS will also provide a portal for companies on and around the airport grounds. As well as enabling Viggo to optimally facilitate parking for its clients, the portal will also allow car rental companies to manage the parking rights of their own customers and employees.

“The airport site offers various challenges in the area of traffic flows of the many user groups,” noted Hans-Bart Olijhoek, operations director at Viggo. “WPS has been working very well with us about possible scenarios and solutions for the airport’s parking facilities. I am confident that we can jointly realize an optimal service for Lelystad Airport and its passengers.”

Erik Dijkshoorn, managing director of WPS, commented, “Through our partnership with Viggo, we are taking the next step in realizing our ambition to provide airports worldwide with intelligent parking solutions. We already do this for other airports in Europe, and also in America and Canada, such as at Halifax International Airport, Durango Airport and Lincoln Airport.”
