Oakland International Airport selects AirIT passenger processing technology

US-based IT provider AirIT has announced that Oakland International Airport (OAK) in California, US, has selected its Extended Airline System Environment (EASE) passenger processing technology.

US-based IT provider AirIT has announced that Oakland International Airport (OAK) in California has selected its Extended Airline System Environment (EASE) passenger processing technology.

The advanced platform allows airline carriers to use their own native system environment while offering cost savings and enhanced operational flexibility to the airport operator. It means that the airlines can use any equipped ticket counter or gate workstation.

The airport owner, Port of Oakland, sought proposals from qualified consultants in an effort to shift from the airport’s existing iMUSE common use system to a new-generation shared use system that can be installed on its VMWARE platform.

"All airline carriers at OAK preferred the EASE solution over the competition."

Port of Oakland aviation director Deborah Ale Flint said: "We look forward to working with AirIT and integrating its EASE platform into the OAK environment.

"Providing our carriers the most effective tool for passenger processing is critical to maintaining the convenience and efficiency that makes OAK the ‘Best Way to San Francisco Bay’."

The virtual technology platform was selected as the preferred solution by all the ten airline partners at OAK.

AirIT CEO Betros Wakim said: "The fact that all airline carriers at OAK preferred the EASE solution over the competition is another testament to the value of AirIT virtualised technology delivery.

"We are very excited to provide the next-generation passenger processing technology the Port of Oakland was looking for."
