Egypt’s El Nouzha Airport, also known as Alexandria International Airport, has implemented a number of Rockwell Collins ARINC airport solutions to transform its operational and passenger processing systems.
The airport closed in December 2011 and is currently undergoing renovations in preparation for its reopening this June. It hopes the systems will improve airport operations by helping avoid aircraft congestion at gates and assisting with on-time departures and arrivals.
El Nouzha Airport is also installing Rockwell Collins’s common-use passenger processing system (CUPPS) and a smart baggage solution. Other ARINC solutions deployed at the airport include ARINC AirVUE, ARINC AirDB, and ARINC LocalCheck.
Rakan Khaled, director of operations for airport systems at Rockwell Collins, commented, “El Nouzha is strategically located in the heart of Alexandria, making it an ideal airport for travelers interested in visiting the area.
“The Rockwell Collins solutions will enable the airport to support its ambitious growth plans – and the resulting planes and travelers – by optimizing airport infrastructure.”
