MATERNA Integrated Passenger Services Self-Service Check-In, Boarding, Baggage, Security and Payment Systems for the Airport Industry

Materna

Materna IPS is an integrated passenger services brand providing automated passenger handling solutions.

The company’s common use self-service (CUSS) solutions include applications for kiosk, online or mobile check-in, as well as secure access, self-boarding and automated bag drop systems. With over 30 years of experience, Materna helps to minimise costs and at the same time increase efficiency and safety.

In addition to check-in systems, Materna has also been delivering automated baggage drop systems, as well as software for authorisation checks and self-boarding in collaboration with reliable hardware partners. The applications are based on modern technology and are already deployed successfully on the market. Materna focuses on integrating systems and infrastructure and delivers customised solutions for individual requirements.

Check-in solutions, hardware, CUSS platform and applications

Materna’s fully IATA-standardised CUSS platform and applications provide fast and easy-to-use check-in for all kinds of kiosks at much lower costs in comparison to typical counter check-ins.

It’s your choice: kiosk check-in, web check in or mobile phone check-in. In addition to the CUSS-based solutions, Materna also offers CUPPS-services for staffed counters at airports.

Quick, easy and secure self bag drop solutions

The company’s quick and easy-to-use bag drop solutions deliver intelligent and state-of-the-art baggage handling. Materna’s self bag drop installations completely fulfil modern security standards and passenger service requirements.

Customers choose between different models, depending on their existing infrastructure and special needs. As a full-service provider, we also provide CUSS and CUTE support. Our self-bag-drop solutions comply with CUSS and IATA RP 1701standards and support multiple airline departure control systems (DCS).

Retrofit kiosk for self bag drop

Materna extended its range of products with a new self-service kiosk for automated baggage drop at airports. The new retrofit kiosk is called Merkur.

Although Merkur is designed for unmanned baggage handling, the check-in desks where it is installed can still be used for normal staffed check-in services. Merkur can be deployed flexibly and fits in conveniently with existing conveyor systems at airports.

The system provides for the highest levels of security, is easy to operate, and can be integrated in the infrastructure of baggage handling halls. Materna developed the kiosk together with their partner company eKiosk, a supplier of complete solutions in the field of info-terminals and kiosk systems. In addition to printers, Merkur also includes a scanning module which recognises and checks any tags on the baggage.

Cabin luggage check

New to Materna’s baggage handling portfolio is the cabin luggage check for the automatic inspection of hand baggage. The system identifies bags and verifies their compliance with the specific airline rules for cabin luggage. This ensures that only bags which are of correct size and weight will be accepted as hand luggage, and avoids time delays while boarding the aircraft. As with all Materna solutions, the cabin luggage check is a common use application.

Secure access solutions for safety

Our secure access software provides safe access to various kinds of secure areas in airport environments, running in attended or unattended modes. When passengers pass from landside to airside, it checks their boarding passes and verifies the information by comparing it with the airport’s database. It provides additional information, statistics, peak times, the passenger’s residence, the walking time of passengers to their gate, and any gate changes.

Self boarding solution for efficiency and security

Optimise your boarding process significantly with our self boarding gate solution. After successfully reading the passenger’s boarding pass, the system automatically checks the validity of the passenger data and provides the airline with all the information it needs.

The self boarding application can be integrated easily into your existing infrastructure and, if required, can be equipped with biometric data identification functions, such as face recognition.

Field and payment services

With its worldwide operations and a strong partner network, Materna favour simplified and constant customer dialogue as well as straightforward processes. A team of certified IT specialists and project managers guarantees customer-oriented, high-quality services. If required, we can take care of your service delivery, management and maintenance for the preferred solutions.

Integrated payment services at kiosks or via mobile devices provide the best possible service to passengers. As airport terminal space is limited and passengers expect their experience on the ground to be as convenient as possible, easy payment processes save time and money.

About Materna

With its own service engineers, Materna ensures swift and reliable on-site services. Major airports and airlines, such as Lufthansa, Emirates, Eurowings, Vienna International Airport, Hamburg Airport, London Gatwick Airport, Swedavia or John Wayne Airport, are just some of Materna’s customers in this field.
