Mexican airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario Del Pacífico (GAP) has implemented SITA’s AirportConnect Open platform at its Mexicali International Airport.

Mexicali Airport has become the 11th airport operated by GAP to move onto this new technology.

As per the contract, SITA will offer common-use self-service kiosks, check-in areas, and boarding gates running on SITA AirportConnect Open.

SITA’s technology will enable the airport and airlines to share the same check-in and boarding equipment to improve operational efficiency.

GAP IT and innovation quality director Juan Francisco Martinez Mira said: “SITA is the ideal technology partner for GAP. Together we have developed an IT plan across our group so that our costs for SITA’s services are harmonised across all the airports we operate.

“At Mexicali, the solution SITA has provided will improve capacity and allow us to grow our passenger numbers further. Currently, the vast majority of traffic is domestic, but with SITA’s world-class technology we hope to increase international passenger numbers.”

Passengers flying from Mexicali are already using SITA’s technology, including the S5 self-service kiosks.

These kiosks can be used for various self-service processes, such as booking, changing a reservation, check-in, and printing bag tags.

Mexicali International Airport is the northernmost airport in Mexico and is located close to the US border.

It witnessed record growth last year, with annual passenger numbers increasing by 42% from 2017. As a result, Mexicali became the fastest growing among the 12 airports managed by GAP.
