ARINC and Ikusi have delivered new remotely hosted check-in and departure systems to Spain's Lleida-Alguaire Airport.

The company said that the systems will reduce maintenance and energy needs by removing the need to install local infrastructure and won't require any costly servers or conventional workstations on-site.

ARINC's vMUSE EnterpriseTM and Hosted DCS systems operate online to perform all the required data processing at an off-site ARINC central processor.

Lleida Airport director, Alberto Lopez, said: "These new passenger systems will fully meet the peak operational needs of our tour operators, reducing the processing times while remaining within the budget of a seasonal airport such as ours."

To further its enhancements for passenger check-in and departure, the airport has also deployed two new security control points and passport control stations.

The airport is expecting about 30,000 additional passengers this season as UK travel operator Neilson-Thomas Cook launches charter operations, and also 16,500 skiers.

ARINC systems' are expected to expedite passenger check-in and departure while doubling its previous security handling capacity.
