At George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Alstom will be responsible for train operations and dispatching as well as maintenance of the Innovia vehicle fleet, guideway, signaling system, and station and maintenance building facilities.

The Houston Airport System has awarded Alstom a 10-year, $105.1 million (€87 million) contract to operate and maintain the Skyway automated people-mover system at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas.

This follows a previous 10-year services contract with Bombardier Transportation, which Alstom recently acquired.

Alstom will be responsible for 24-hour train operations and dispatching, as well as maintenance of the Innovia vehicle fleet, guideway, signaling system, and station and maintenance building facilities.

Alstom Americas President Jérôme Wallut

“Alstom is pleased to continue and build upon this long-term relationship with the Houston Airport System,” Alstom Americas President Jérôme Wallut said. “We’re proud that our industry-leading Innovia automated people mover system has been moving travelers and employees between terminals at George Bush Intercontinental Airport safely, efficiently and reliably since 1999.”
