Egyptian airports adopt CUPPS technology
Sharm El Sheikh Airport will soon carry an overhauled CUPPS standardised system, as recommended by IATA, which will enable integration with other airports and airlines.
ARINC has signed a three-year contract with Egyptian Holding Company for Airports and Air Navigation (EHCAAN) to install passenger processing solution vMUSE at five regional Egyptian airports – Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, Borg El Arab and Abu Simbel. The ARINC vMUSE platform is fully compliant with the IATA CUPPS standard for common-use passenger systems.
ARINC will be working in partnership with Aviation Information Technology (AVIT), a subsidiary of the EHCAAN. It will create and install the core common passenger processing systems and handle third-level support, whilst first and second level support are provided by AVIT itself.
“Egyptian Airports Company (EAC) airports have been experiencing strong growth for several years,” said Dr. Ashraf Zaki, Vice President of EHCAAN. “We believe that ARINC is an ideal partner to handle our continued expansion given their industry-leading technology and the tremendous airport experience they bring to the table, both globally and here in the Middle East.”
FTE Europe 2016 will take place at RAI Amsterdam from 25-26 April 2016.
