SITA’s global industry knowledge, combined with the experience of deploying and managing common use systems at hundreds of airports of all sizes, enables us to design a solution to meet specific customer needs.
AirportConnect Open is the only common use platform offering an end-to-end solution for all passenger touchpoints.
AirportConnect Open enables airports to leverage the benefits of a shared infrastructure and extend those benefits to airlines, minimizing costs and enhancing operational capabilities. It also helps attract new airline customers because of the simple and efficient integration of airline operations into the airport environment.
AirportConnect Open allows airlines to deliver a consistent level of passenger services by providing standard applications and service management, regardless of airport location. It is the only common use platform listed on the VISA Registry of Service Providers confirming it was assessed as compliant to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
The Common Use Payment Service is the industry’s first and only PCI point-to-point encryption (P2PE) certified solution, and meets Europay, MasterCard, VISA (EMV) standards. It enables payment transactions at common use check-in desks, kiosks and bag drop areas for payment of baggage fees, upgrades and other ancillary charges. This broadens airline retail opportunities while providing confidence in the enhanced security of the payment process, meeting regulatory requirements, and delivering a greater travel experience, in which passengers can make payments at the point-of-sale.
Training is available for this and other products through Air Travel Solutions (ATS).
