Abu Dhabi Airport Company will partner with SITA to upgrade the passenger processing systems at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Under the five-year contract, SITA will upgrade the airport's existing AirportConnect CUTE check-in platform with its new IATA Common Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS).

SITA will also maintain 350 check-in counters and 24 self-service kiosks for multiple airline use and upgrade the baggage reconciliation system across three terminals.

Abu Dhabi Airport will be the first major hub in the Middle East to use the CUPPS system, which will eventually replace the existing system.
