It has been announced today that Rockwell Collins and Incheon International Airport Corporation (IIAC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for closer collaboration to enhance passenger processing at Incheon International Airport.
“Incheon has thrived by using the latest and most innovative technology in all stages of the passenger journey, from check-in to immigration, and Rockwell Collins’ ARINC suite of products has played a major role in that over the years,” said Seong Kag Hong, vice president, Aerodome Division of IIAC. “This MoU is a natural progression in our relationship and will result in new solutions for the airport going forward.”
Through its acquisition of ARINC, Rockwell Collins has been a long-standing partner of IIAC in its pursuit of innovative services and products to streamline passenger processing. Incheon has used the Rockwell Collins ARINC portfolio of passenger processing solutions since it opened.
Rockwell Collins will also integrate its ARINC vMUSE™ common-use platform and other passenger and baggage processing solutions with IIAC’s new AirCUS check-in solution, offering airlines greater flexibility and reliability while ensuring smooth passenger flows and operational efficiencies.
“IIAC’s knowledge of airport operations and our expertise in developing cutting-edge, scalable passenger processing solutions create a perfect team for this endeavor,” explained Heament John Kurian, managing director, Information Management Service, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins.
In addition, the MoU calls for both companies to combine their technical expertise, cutting-edge solutions and industry knowledge to advance passenger processing in small and medium airports in Southeast Asia.
