Velana International (MLE) and Gan International (GAN) airports in the Maldives have introduced the Rockwell Collins ARINC vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing System, aiming to enhance efficiency during check-in.
Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE delivers greater flexibility for airports of all sizes, with an interoperable, web-based solution to manage the entire check-in process with self-service options and scalability to future-proof installations.
Rockwell Collins airport systems marketing and strategy senior director Tony Chapman said: “Rockwell Collins has worked with Maldives Airports Company Ltd (MACL) for over a decade.
“In fact, it was our successful relationship as a preferred IT solution partner for MACL that resulted in our new agreement with GAN. We are ideally positioned to support the Maldives airports as they continue to grow.”
The airports are managed by Maldives Airports Company Ltd (MACL), which has worked with Rockwell Collins for more than ten years. This is the first contract with GAN, but MLE has been using the ARINC vMUSE solution successfully, and this announcement recognises a renewal of the current contract.
MACL managing director Adil Moosa said: “We have embarked on the biggest project in the history of Maldives to develop MLE. More than a billion-dollar (US) investment was made to improve the airport infrastructure.
“Tourism is the largest industry in the Maldives so our airports, and the experience our passengers have is incredibly important to our overall economy. Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE enables us to provide a faster and easier check-in experience for our airline customers and passengers. It also enables airlines to share workstations, making the best use of our resources.”
