Airport Success in 2012


ARINC Airport Success in 2012ARINC EMEA is close to concluding contracts with two new airports for its vMUSETM common use passenger processing system – Gdansk, Poland and a major African airport.

This comes hard on the heels of its early New Year win to provide passenger check-in and departure systems at the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport, currently under construction. Here, ARINC is installing vMUSETM, fully compliant with the IATA CUPPS standard for common-use passenger systems, together with its BagLinkTM baggage information distribution system.

ARINC has already implemented a full production environment with 168 workstations for Airport Readiness Testing and has installed its AviNet AirportTM service for airlines to connect to host systems immediately. Hardware installation was completed in February, and when up to full operation ARINC will have rolled out vMUSE on 153 workstations for check-in and back office desks, and 188 boarding gate workstations for use by 31 airlines and handling agents.

Berlin Brandenburg Airport is the new international airport, located 11 miles south of central Berlin at the site of the current Schönefeld Airport. The successor to Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport, which closed in 2008, it will take over from both Tegel and Schönefeld Airports in June 2012. Berlin Brandenburg Airport will have an initial capacity for as many as 27 million passengers annually, and can be expanded to accommodate up to 45 million.
