PassengerHandler

Reduces the complexity of check-in and boarding transactions for your staff

Overview

Ground handlers and airline staff acting as ground handlers for other airlines, often find they have to use a number of different departure control systems (DCSs). That means time-consuming and complex training is needed, as well as careful rostering based on staff proficiency for each different DCS.

SITA’s PassengerHandler removes those complexities by enabling ground handlers to access multiple DCSs over one simple, user-friendly, graphical user interface (GUI).

This product is available through SITA's ATI Cloud.

Your benefits

PassengerHandler provides the following benefits.

  • Shorter staff training time – training for PassengerHandler typically takes 1.5 days, after which an agent can check in several different carriers (contrast with how long it takes to train for DCS native mode entries)
  • Reduced training costs – shorter training time, plus the fact that once trained on PassengerHandler staff can check in any airline, greatly reduces training costs
  • Reduced staff costs – since PassengerHandler uses a familiar GUI, new staff do not need the same background in passenger handling as in the past
  • Reduced communications costs – all entries to the DCS are produced by PassengerHandler and are therefore error free, reducing communication time and costs
  • Enhanced staff productivity – staff can check in passengers on different airlines DCSs – without having to be familiar with the “character-mode” entries for each of these systems
  • Greater flexibility for staff management – since staff can be scheduled for check-in on different carriers, rostering issues that occur when only limited pools of staff are trained on individual carriers do not arise
