Airport operator ASUR has implemented SITA’s passenger management, airport operations and self-service technology at Cancún International Airport in Mexico.
SITA’s technology will help the airport deal with its seasonal peaks in passenger numbers by providing a smoother security and check-in process. The solutions installed by SITA include its Airport Management solution, allowing ASUR to manage airport operations in real–time; and its AirportConnect Open passenger management platform, allowing for the integration of common-use passenger processing systems (CUPPS) and common-use self-service (CUSS) kiosks. The technology developer has also installed 375 common-use workstations, 80 self-service kiosks and is in the process of implementing nine self-service gates.
Adolfo Castro Rivas, CEO/CFO, ASUR, said, “We face increasing passenger numbers each year and it is vital that we have the most efficient, reliable and future-proofed technology so that we manage that growth. For more than a decade, SITA has worked closely with us to ensure that airlines and passengers have a great experience here. As we grow we are confident that SITA will help us deliver their vision of the airport of the future and ensure that visitors to Cancún enjoy a smart, intelligent and connected airport.”
Alex Covarrubias, vice president, Latin America, SITA, said, “Cancún Airport continues to innovate as it manages current growth and prepares for the future. SITA is partnering with the airport team to ensure that our integrated systems are supporting the end-to-end passenger experience while ensuring efficient operations. These are exciting times as we work together to ensure that Cancún is fully ready to embrace its future growth.”
