Aktobe International Airport (AKX) in Kazakhstan will deploy TAV Technologies’ common-use passenger processing system (CUPPS).

CUPPS is a scalable platform which has been designed to serve various workstations to provide multi-airport, multi-airline, and multi-ground handler support.

TAV Technologies stated that its technology would automate passenger processes such as check-in and boarding with industry-standard technologies.

The firm added that its platform would allow airport management, airlines, and ground handlers to access and process passenger applications from the same platform.

TAV’s CUPPS allows usage of the same equipment irrespective of the airline with its IATA-certified system incorporating biometric integration capabilities.

The platform offers advanced monitoring and management capabilities, allowing operators to monitor real-time status and manage all the workstations from one location.

Aktobe International Airport Management Board chairman Dastan Maliyev said: “CUPPS is a highly customisable solution to reveal the critical passenger flow data at all passenger transaction points.

“The system strengthened our digital infrastructure to offer better services for passengers and elevate operational quality.”

Additionally, with the implementation of the new platform, the airport is expected to cut its overall environmental footprint by reducing energy usage.

The airport is also said to benefit from the web-based interface of CUPPS.

TAV Technologies general manager Kerem Öztürk said: “We feel enthusiastic about demonstrating our technology expertise to a wider audience within new airports around the globe.

“Our appetite for innovation encourages us to offer solutions to new customers, focus on digitalisation, and enhance passenger satisfaction. We are proud to partner with Aktobe International Airport to provide our state-of-the-art technology.”
