EgyptAir, Arinc sign deal for new systems
Annapolis, Maryland, July 4, 2013
US-based Arinc, a communications, engineering and integration solutions provider, said EgyptAir has signed a contract for its AviNet Airport service to support check-in operations using the Amadeus Altea Departure Control System (DCS).
The company also recently won a major contract to install its passenger processing solution vMUSE at five regional airports in Egypt including Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, Borg El Arab and Abu Simbel, said a statement.
Arinc will now install the new AviNet Airport services in Egypt and across the world where its vMUSE platforms are operational.
In addition to the Egyptian airports, AviNet will also be used by EgyptAir at nine other international airports across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America, it said.
It will also provide turnkey project management to deploy new Altea client software to connect the airports to the Amadeus Altea host, helping the airline to eliminate a significant portion of the cost and provide the airline with a single point of contact, said the statement.
“Arinc’s ability to provide a fully managed service eliminates administrative burdens from our team, saving time and money,” said Hassan Nour, vice president of IT Services at EgyptAir.
“AviNet Airport’s reliable connectivity enables us to improve our airport operations globally, which ultimately benefits all of our passengers,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
