23 April 2021 – Alstom has been awarded an 87 million contract by the Houston Airport System in Houston, Texas to provide ten years of operations and maintenance services for the Skyway automated people mover system at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Under the agreement, Alstom will be responsible for 24-hour train operations and dispatching as well as maintenance of the Innovia vehicle fleet, guideway, signaling system, and facilities including stations and the maintenance building. This follows a previous ten-year services contract with Bombardier Transportation, which is now part of Alstom.

“Alstom is pleased to continue and build upon this long-term relationship with the Houston Airport System,” said Jérôme Wallut, President, Alstom Americas. “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.  Our experienced service delivery team will continue to focus on maintaining the system’s high-performance levels and supporting the airport in meeting its mobility solutions requirements.”

Alstom has 50 years of experience in designing, building, operating, and maintaining automated transit systems for airports and cities in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. In the United States alone, Alstom supports automated transit systems at airports in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Las Vegas, New York, Newark, Orlando, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, and Tampa as well as Houston. Furthermore, as part of LAX Integrated Express Solutions (LINXS), Alstom will operate and maintain the new automated people mover system under construction at Los Angeles International Airport.

In addition, Alstom has a long-standing track record of providing operations and maintenance services to transit systems, including more than a dozen across the United States and Canada. Its comprehensive services portfolio also includes modernization, parts, repairs, overhauls, and digital and support services.
