Rio passenger reconciliation system

As the main gateway into Brazil, RIOgaleão Tom Jobin International Airport has been the first impression of Brazil for the many passengers and athletes associated with the 2016 Rio Olympic games.

In addition to the regular flight traffic that RIOgaleão handles from 26 airlines every day, an expected 1.5 million further travellers are to pass through the terminals during the games, including non-regular charter flights from other airlines, such as SwissAir, Qantas, KoreanAir and Japan Airlines.

In preparation, RIOgaleão has made investments totalling approximately $560 million (USD) to upgrade airport systems and technologies, restaurant and shopping facilities to accommodate additional travellers. Herlichy Bastos, Director of Operations of RIOgaleão said, “RIOgaleão is the gateway to our country and it is important that we give the best experience we can offer to those traveling to attend one of the main sporting events in the world.”

 

Increasing efficiency and security for global airports and events

 

One of the biggest system upgrades has been the implementation of ARINC VeriPax, Rockwell Collins’ flexible passenger reconciliation system that uses automated security screening gates, 19 of which have been installed throughout the airport to manage a passenger flow capacity of 50 per minute, increasing passenger processing capabilities by up to 300%.

ARINC VeriPax facilitates enhanced passenger screening and security in real time, significantly reducing the time needed to carry out critical passenger security procedures at checkpoints within the airport environment. Boarding passes are scanned using high-speed barcode scanners, which process the information and access airline systems in real time, allowing operators to expedite low-risk travellers and simultaneously providing alerts to agents if necessary.

With growing terror threats still reaching into every part of the globe, international airports are facing increasing pressure to ensure that travellers remain safe during every part of their journey. The advent of high-tech solutions can only serve to reinforce initiatives, while increasing efficiency to ensure that airline passengers maintain a good travel experience.

“Operations in RIOgaleão are achieving international standards and access optimization is one initiative amongst a series of measures aiming at improving passenger experience,” said Alexandre Villeroy, RIOgaleão’s IT manager. “The summer games in Rio are an important landmark of this change and will leave a legacy of excellence in services and ongoing improvement of our procedures and infrastructure. The trend is for the number of passengers to continue to increase and we are ready to optimize, regardless of the demand, whilst offering both comfort and safety.”
