Bratislava M. R. Stefanika Airport (BTS) in Slovakia has signed a contract with ARINC to continue to use its iMUSE platform for a further two years.

As part of the renewal agreement, ARINC will deliver iMUSE for common use, in addition to provision of a third level technical support.

Bratislava Airport has been using ARINC's iMUSE platform since signing the original contract in 2005.

The company's iMUSE common-use system aims to improve passenger processing speeds by sharing airport infrastructure and resources.

Bratislava Airport IT personnel will be responsible for delivering local maintenance support for the deployed systems.

Bratislava Airport spokesperson Dana Madunicka said: "Bratislava Airport is focused on providing the best possible services for our customers and ARINC's technology helps us achieve that goal.

"Bratislava Airport has been using ARINC's iMUSE platform since signing the original contract in 2005."

ARINC's new common-use technology vMUSE is interoperable with the current CUTE common-use equipment, as well as the future CUPPS common-use systems.

The new vMUSE offers significant enhancements when compared to iMUSE, as well as offering cost reductions through the elimination of bespoke printers and special paper stock for boarding passes.

Based on ARINC's multi-user system environment (MUSE) technology, vMUSE is being offered at three levels including standard, advanced and enterprise.

Bratislava airport features three terminals spanning an area of 18,826m², check-in units, fully automated luggage screening belts and metal detectors, in addition to space for shopping, waiting and departure zones.
