It has been announced by Rockwell Collins that Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) has awarded the contract for the installation of its latest ARINC vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing System (CUPPS). The agreement will also see the installation of ARINC SelfServ common use kiosk software and ARINC VeriPax passenger reconciliation system in addition to updated flight information display and local DCS.
“We’re pleased to extend and expand a partnership which dates back to 2004,” said Karen Walkes, director of engineering for GAIA Inc. “Rockwell Collins’ vMUSE system, as well as its other technologies, provides our airport with the most efficient ways to process passengers—and improve customer service—throughout our facilities.”
The implementation of vMUSE supports the latest CUPPS standards, offering airlines and airports new savings and efficiencies. GAIA was the first airport in the world to run the Rockwell Collins common use platform entirely on a wireless network, providing unrivalled flexibility in system and hardware updates, airport construction and outdoor equipment.
“ARINC vMUSE gives GAIA more flexibility while reducing costs,” said Mike Picco, vice president, Information Management Services (IMS) for Rockwell Collins. “This renewal highlights our outstanding relationship with GAIA and demonstrates our strong commitment to our Latin American and Caribbean customers.”
