Check-in solutions for airports

Modular systems provide an individual fit for terminal design, space and local requirements. Together with our customers, we find the ideal solution to optimise passenger and baggage handling.
Different hardware partners and designers develop our products with vast expertise and aviation knowhow. These include check-in kiosks with a robust layout for maximum use that are equipped with modern technology and components for scanning, reading and printing.

CUSS platform expertise and applications
Expertise in software development has allowed us to deliver our own CUSS platform and application for self-service check-in and bag drop solutions, which are CUSS and IATA RP 1701 f-compliant and support multiple airline departure control systems.

When it comes to passenger identification at certain airport service points, we are able to integrate biometric solutions directly at the kiosk. Materna IPS is a system integrator that assimilates different types of biometrics solutions and software at the passenger touchpoints. Together with established hardware partners, we integrate authentication solutions such as face recognition, fingerprint and iris identification according to our customers’ requirements.
To secure future-oriented services and technologies, we continuously improve our solutions and integrate biometric identification at all passenger check-in, bag drop, security and boarding stages.
