Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) has signed a multi-year contract renewal with Rockwell Collins for the company's ARINC vMUSE common use terminal equipment system at Las Américas and Gregorio Luperón airports.
Aerodom is the private body that has been authorised by the Dominican Government to manage six of the country's nine airports.
The contract will also include the renewal of ARINC LocalCheckSM, the airports' local departure control system and Rockwell Collins' ARINC counter allocation display system.
Aerodom and Rockwell Collins are also working together for the latter's ARINC managed services which will provide on-site IT airport systems maintenance and support at both the airports.
The new technology equips the airports with multiple airline applications, which can be run simultaneously on the same workstation to allow airlines to increase efficiency and processing time while reducing cost.
To enhance border security by automating the transmission of advanced passenger information system data to customs officials, the airports' charter airlines will use ARINC LocalCheck.
Aerodom CEO Monika Infante said: "Through its ARINC airport services, Rockwell Collins has provided outstanding support at our airport locations.
"That support, combined with the company's industry-leading products, has had a significant positive effect on our customer's travel experience."
Rockwell Collins staff vice-president, airport systems Mike Picco added: "Rockwell Collins is committed to our customers in Latin America and the Caribbean. This agreement highlights another milestone in our successful strategy to grow our business throughout Latin America."
