Onyx Group secure £3m Edinburgh Airport contract

North East IT firm Onyx Group has won a major five-year deal with Edinburgh Airport.

The deal is estimated to be worth around £3m and will put Onyx in charge of management across the airport’s IT infrastructure.

It will include 24/7 IT support and a dual datacentre service, which will add resilience to the airport’s infrastructure.

Neil Stephenson, CEO of Onyx Group, said: “Securing the contract with Edinburgh Airport, Scotland’s busiest airport, is great news as it is a high profile client in the UK and also our first in the aviation market.

“Scotland has been key to our growth strategy and it remains central to our plans as we continue to expand our Scotland-based clients across a range of industries.

“Outsourcing IT is becoming increasingly popular as companies across all industries realise the benefits it can provide. It’s cost effective, as there’s no need to worry about having the appropriate expertise and infrastructure in house, it’s secure and resilient so companies can focus on business objectives and not worry about IT and it provides flexibility as outsourced IT services can be scaled up or down to support the changing needs of businesses.”

The deal follows a string of recent successes for Onyx, including acquisitions and organic growth.

Graeme Agnew, Head of IT at Edinburgh Airport, said: “This is an important announcement for Edinburgh Airport and represents the first of a number of major capital investments under new ownership. It is vital for us to have the IT capacity to support business growth, and the ability to implement the best technological solutions and quality of service for our passengers and airlines.

“We also wanted to place our IT systems in an Edinburgh facility. Onyx allows us to do all this and we’re excited to be working with them as we begin to change and improve technology services across our airport.”
