Egypt’s El Nouzha Airport (Alexandria International) has implemented a range of Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Airports solutions as a part of its plan to overhaul passenger processing and airport operations systems.

In addition, the airport is improving passenger experience with the implementation of CUPPS, and a smart baggage handling solution to improve reconciliation.

The ARINC airport solutions include:

  • ARINC AirDB: Airport database solution to maximise efficiency from curbside to runway
  • ARINC vMUSE: Common Use Passenger Processing System (CUPPS)
  • ARINC AirVUE: Advanced flight information displays
  • ARINC AirPlan: Optimising airport operations and resources
  • ARINC LocalCheck
  • ARINC InfoHub

Rockwell Collins Airport Systems operations director Rakan Khaled said: "El Nouzha is strategically located in the heart of Alexandria, making it an ideal airport for travellers interested in visiting the area.

"The Rockwell Collins solutions will enable the airport to support its ambitious growth plans, and the resulting planes and travellers, by optimizing airport infrastructure."

The airport, which has been closed since December 2011, is continuing to implement key systems to reduce congestion and improve flight operations, in addition to extensive renovation in preparation for the re-launch, expected to take place during June this year.
