AirIT has been selected to deliver its virtualised shared use passenger processing system to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) in South Carolina, US.

The deal is part of a four-year terminal renovation and expansion project at GSP, as the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport district plans to deploy AirIT's EASE advanced platform for passenger processing, for all air carriers during this transitory period to efficiently and effectively facilitate the relocation process.

AirIT president and COO Chris Keller said: "AirIT is looking forward to working with the district to implement the latest passenger processing platform technology available today to compliment the current terminal modernisation efforts at GSP.

"This new partnership with AirIT will help position GSP to grow strategically and continue our mission to be one of the most efficient and user-friendly airports in the world."

"Shared use technology will provide GSP's terminal facility with the optimised operational flexibility required during the modernisation project."

Greenville-Spartanburg Airport district president and CEO Dave Edwards said: "This new partnership with AirIT will help position GSP to grow strategically and continue our mission to be one of the most efficient and user-friendly airports in the world."

According to the AirIT, its shared use passenger processing infrastructure is capable of delivering the best overall value for futureproofing GSP's airline and passenger processing needs.

EASE employs desktop virtualisation technology to securely deliver the native system functionality and does not involve any of the costly airline application development and certification requirements associated with the traditional common use application platforms.

AirIT has already deployed its EASE platform across two dozen US airports, in order to address a variety of business needs by providing a shared infrastructure platform.

Greenville-Spartanburg Airport is the is the second-busiest airport in South Carolina and handled approximately 1.82 million passengers in 2013.
