ABU Dhabi’s Department of Civil Aviation has announced a Dh19m upgrade in its baggage handling facilities.
The deal was signed by Dr Abdullah Bilhaif Al Nuaimi on behalf of the Abu Dhabi Department of Civil Aviation and Data Processing System’s George Hannouche. The contract comprises the supply and installation of various software systems to ease and enhance passenger and baggage handling at Abu Dhabi and Al Ain International Airports as well as the City Terminal. Not only will the new system be a boon to airlines operating at these airports, but any airline wishing to start operations at these points can be easily integrated in to the airport systems.
At the heart of new system will be software packages for Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) coupled with Passenger Handler System (PHS) and Baggage Reconciliation System (BRS). All these facilities are designed to improve the services to passengers at every step and to reduce delays. CUTE is state-of-the-art check-in system currently being implemented at major airports in the world that, coupled with PHS, allows check-in staff to carry out all check-in formalities for different airlines easily, processing passengers quickly and efficiently.
The airports have also taken into account charter operators and low cost carriers that practice manual check-in procedures, who will be served by the Local Departure Control System (LDCS).
