Manage growth within my existing infrastructure?

According to Airports Council International (ACI), total passenger traffic should reach 7 billion by 2020. However, not all airports can increase their infrastructure, either through lack of space or funding, to cope with this increase in passengers.

Airports must optimize their use of technology and existing infrastructure if they hope to accommodate the growth in passengers while enabling sustainable business transformation and improving operational efficiency.

  • Self-service applications - enable faster processing of passengers in a reduced space; CUSS kiosks help you minimize the number of check-in kiosks, while self bag-drop units enable faster passenger processing
  • Airport Management – plan your day-to-day operations efficiently by managing the allocation of critical resources; enables future-planning and operational forecasts
  • Baggage Management - optimize your baggage operations; track, trace, manage and predict the flow of bags both inter- and intra-airport; ensure your baggage systems get the required information in advance of bags arriving so that appropriate decisions can be made about how bags should be sorted or loaded; ensure that more bags are correctly loaded, fewer bags are mishandled, while supporting on-time departures
  • Airport Infrastructure Management – ensure efficient management of the airport’s communication infrastructure through a unique ATI-dedicated portfolio of products and services; provide a value-added user-experience for all voice, data, video and business applications using multiple devices across fixed and mobile networks on the airport campus
