Air Seychelles installs SITA’s passenger processing technology at Seychelles Airport


National airline Air Seychelles has implemented global IT provider SITA’s advanced common-use passenger processing systems (CUPPS) at Seychelles International Airport in East Africa.

The new technology will offer enhanced flexibility to international airlines operating at the airport by enabling them to share common-use terminal equipment for passenger check-in and boarding.

Air Seychelles CEO Roy Kinnear said: “The new common-use terminal equipment will enable Air Seychelles to connect to various Departure Control Systems used by other airlines operating to the Seychelles, providing more flexibility to our ground handling operations.

“Even more importantly, it will enable us to streamline check-in and boarding processes for all the international travellers that are handled at Seychelles International Airport, making sure they have a smooth experience.

"[SITA’s technology] will enable us to streamline check-in and boarding processes for all the international travellers that are handled at Seychelles International Airport."

“This development from SITA follows the long list of innovative technological solutions that we have implemented to ensure an improved guest experience.”

In collaboration with the Seychelles Civil Aviation Authority and SITA, the airline is currently upgrading its technology to ensure a faster and easier travel experience for passengers.

SITA Indian Subcontinent, Eastern and Southern Africa vice-president Maneesh Jaikrishna said: “Our common-use systems bring new efficiencies to Seychelles International Airport for both Air Seychelles and other operators.

“This in turn will have a dramatic impact on passengers who will benefit from a smooth and seamless travel experience.”

The integration of the new passenger processing systems will help optimise the use of terminal facilities, speed up the flow of passengers, and enhance service levels for all international passengers travelling from the airport.
