Anviz, Megapar install fingerprint identification device at Paraguay airport.

Anviz Global recently partnered with distribution company Megapar Ingenieria SA to provide security solutions for the Silvio Pettirossi International Airport in Asuncion, Paraguay.

The partnership continues the companies’ long-running professional relationship over the past several years in which Anviz Global has provided a series of devices, including biometric-based access control and time-attendance devices to Megapar.

As Paraguay’s busiest airport, Silvio Pettirossi recently underwent significant renovations which called for a much-needed upgrade in security capabilities.

To meet the demands for a security upgrade, Megapar decided to install Anviz Global’s VF30 fingerprint reading device throughout the airport at multiple entry points and other crucial locations.

Once the project was completed in August, Silvio Pettirossi ensured that all of its employees were enrolled in the accurate biometric identification process.

With the VF30, sensitive areas of the Silvio Pettirossi International Airport, such as the airplane hangars, management offices, and security zones have also been integrated with fire protection systems.

In addition to its access control projects, Megapar and Anviz Global have provided Sudameris Bank with time-attendance devices for its multiple branches.

The companies installed Anviz Global’s EP300 devices, which features Anviz’s self-designed and developed AIM software to manage the devices.

With installation being completed on October 1, the EP300 and AIM software has enables Sudameris Bank track the working hours of hundreds of employees at 27 of its branches across Paraguay.

Asuncion Airport

Silvio Pettirossi International Airport

Silvio Pettirossi International Airport (IATA: ASU, ICAO: SGAS) is Paraguay’s main national and international gateway, located at Luque, suburb of the capital Asuncion. It is named after the Paraguayan aviator Silvio Pettirossi and was formerly known as Presidente Stroessner International Airport, after Paraguay’s former head of state General Alfredo Stroessner.

History

The airport serves as hub for TAM Airlines also known as Transportes Aéreos del Mercosur S.A., formerly known as TAM Mercosur and LAP (Líneas Aéreas Paraguayas).

The terminal building splits into domestic and international concourses, with 2 gates (5 and 6) and 4 gates (1 to 4) respectively. However, the airport currently receives only one domestic flight, handled at the International Concourse. The domestic concourse handles cargo, general aviation and charter flights.

On 3 August 2008, local newspaper Diario ABC Color reported that aeronautical officers at the airport were taking advantage of their positions by creating fake company entities that dealt with aircraft handling services, and thus violating safety operational guidances and procedures.
