Arinc has secured a contract for the installation of passenger check-in and departure systems at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, which is under construction in the German capital. Arinc will install its vMUSE passenger solution, which meets the IATA CUPPS standard for common-use passenger systems.

Arinc senior director, Integrated Travel Solutions Tony Chapman said that the company is committed to giving airline customers a trouble-free transition to the new airport, with minimal disruption to the airport or passengers.

"We are expanding our services in Germany and committed to customer satisfaction, with in-country support," Chapman said.

The contract also includes the installation of the company’s BagLink baggage information distribution system, as well as the provision of complete maintenance and support services for the installed technologies. Arinc has already implemented a live test environment on 54 workstations, and has installed its AviNet Airport service for airlines to connect to host systems immediately. The hardware installation will complete in February, with the first units operating for the test run of the airport, which started in November 2011.

The Arinc common-use check-in solution vMUSE comes with a complete suite with features including self-service kiosks and baggage drops, while the BagLink system links airport systems and airline hosts to ensure secured routing of bags checked at common-use locations

The new AviNet Airport system uses standard network hardware technology that involves no custom development for rapid implementation, and supports all airline data communication requirements.
