US-based avionics technology provider Rockwell Collins has supplied its common use self-service technology to the newly opened $1.6bn international terminal at YYC Calgary International Airport in Canada.

The airport, which is already equipped with ARINC common use passenger process solution (CUPPS) and ARINC self-service kiosks, is currently using managed services airport information technology (IT) maintenance service from Rockwell Collins.
