ASA is set to deploy Amadeus Airport Common Use Service (ACUS) and Altea Departure Control (DC) at four international airports in the Republic of Cape Verde.

The new solutions aim to enhance passenger experience and departure control connectivity at the airports.

ASA CEO Sandro De Brito said: "This partnership with Amadeus allows us to scale our operations to increase our airports’ capacities and productivity in the most efficient and cost effective manner not only to meet today’s demand but to also position ourselves for future growth possibilities."

The Cape Verde airports will implement application virtualisation, allowing passenger processing systems to be accessed and installed anywhere on demand.

Airlines and ground handlers will be able to use the platform from a desktop or laptop computer, providing an easy check-in for passengers and printing their boarding passes from any location.

The network connectivity model will also reduce the time required to install these applications at airports, thereby opening new routes for passengers.

"This partnership with Amadeus allows us to scale our operations to increase our airports’ capacities and productivity in the most efficient and cost effective manner."

Only one link between the airline’s departure control system (DCS) and ACUS cloud platform is required. The airlines connect to the Amadeus data centre, instead of the local airport.

Amadeus allows airlines to fly to any Cape Verde airport for regular, seasonal or charter operations, while eliminating network and deployment charges at the airport.

Each airline’s DCS is installed at each check-in desk, capping the number of customers that can be run effectively on each workstation.

Amadeus Airport IT head John Jarrell said: "We see the cloud as a natural evolution for ASA and other airports operating in a dedicated use environment, as the reduction in operational costs and more efficient use of infrastructure will prepare them for future growth."

While other airports host airlines’ DCS systems in a central server room, ASA is shifting directly into a common-use-in-the-cloud environment with the ACUS solution.
