ARINC has won a contract from Central Japan International Airport (Centrair) for the maintenance of its check-in and passenger systems.
ARINC Managed Services (AMS) will provide support to passenger technologies, as well as maintain ARINC vMUSETM common-use systems for check-ins and departures, and BagLinkTM baggage messaging technology.
The vMUSETM passenger processing system streamlines ticketing, check-in and passenger boarding, helping airports to reduce congestion and delays.
BagLinkTM Baggage Messaging technology helps in sorting and routing passenger baggage remotely to minimise cost and time.
Central Japan International Airport initially installed the solutions to simplify and automate passenger processes and reduce costs.
In 2011, ARINC secured the contract to upgrade its iMUSETM check-in and departure systems at Centrair.
The upgrade, which finished this year, was designed to reduce software engineering costs for common-use operations as it is interoperable with the current CUTE common-use equipment and future CUPPS common-use systems.
Central Japan International Airport is located on an island in the Aichi prefecture and serves the Nagoya and the Chubu region of Japan, handling domestic, regional and international passenger and cargo services.
