Amadeus and SITA tout progress in improved airport experience
To improve airport experience, Amadeus has worked with OACIS to provide mobile check-in service, and JetBlue has achieved biometric exit checks through SITA's biometric scanning technology.
Technology companies are increasingly setting their sights on improving the airport experience. Amadeus and Off Airport Check-In Solutions are taking the check-in experience entirely off the airport, enabling travelers to check-in and drop off their bags just about anywhere.
Powered by Amadeus’ Airport Common Use Service (ACUS) cloud technology, OACIS can quickly provide an off-airport, mobile check-in service that can be set up at any location a cruise terminal, hotel, train station or a major conference or event. All that is required is a laptop and internet connectivity.
In another move toward a speedier airport experience, SITA declared JetBlue’s test of its biometric exit checks at boarding gates a success.
SITA said the test, which started in June on flights from Boston Logan International Airport, is popular with JetBlue customers. When given the option, the vast majority choose to board by stepping up to a camera without having to show a boarding pass, passport or any other papers.
The “seamless experience” is helped by the near-100% accuracy of SITA’s biometric scanning technology.
