Alstom Obtains 5-Year Service Contract for Dubai Airport APM

Alstom has obtained an extension to the service contract for the automated people mover system at Dubai International. The APMs – InnoviaTM 300 units – were originally manufactured by Bombardier Transportation, which Alstom acquired in January 2021. Bombardier also held the original service contract.

Alstom and Dubai Airports have signed a five-year contract extension for the provision of comprehensive operations and maintenance services for the InnoviaTM APM 300 system at Dubai International.

Bombardier Transportation originally supplied the turnkey APM system to connect Terminal 1 and Concourse D. The system started carrying passengers in February 2016. As part of that contract Bombardier designed and supplied the electrical and mechanical components, including 18 InnoviaTM 300 cars (which operate as five-car units) and its CityfloTM 650 CBTC technology. Bombardier Transportation acted as system integrator and led the project management, systems engineering, testing and commissioning. It also delivered the first five years of operations and maintenance services.

Tamer Salama, Managing Director, Alstom GCC, said:

“Our Alstom team is delighted to build upon its relationship with Dubai Airports with this new five-year O&M agreement. We will continue to drive top performance as we deliver our world class operations and maintenance services to the world's leading airport, to ensure flawless mobility for DXB's customers.”

The APM line is 1.5km long and carries up to 200,000 passengers per day.

In Dubai, Alstom has delivered the tramway, the world’s first fully catenary-free line. It opened in November 2014. Alstom also oversees the maintenance of the Dubai tram.
