Flights are now operating at Terminal 4, Cancun International Airport, Mexico’s newest airport terminal. The airport’s operator, ASUR, has used innovative technologies from SITA, the global provider of IT to the world’s airports, to ensure a great experience for the more than 21 million passengers that pass through the airport each year.
Cancun International has experienced rapid growth over the last 10 years with passenger numbers doubling as the Caribbean resort’s popularity has risen. It is now Mexico’s busiest airport for international passengers. In a multi-year agreement, SITA is providing technology which enables ASUR to expand Cancun Airport’s capacity and to provide flexible services to meet the needs of the 47 airlines that use it.
The new terminal has 36 SITA AirportConnect self-service check-in kiosks and a further 104 common-use workstations for check-in and boarding. The passenger systems will run on SITA AirportConnect Open, the common-use platform that allows any airline to use any agent desk, gate position or self-service kiosk. This allows the airport to organize passenger processing most efficiently. SITA’s Airport Management solution is already used at Cancun and will now manage operations across all four terminals. This solution provides ASUR with real-time data to better anticipate, plan and control operations, assigning assets and resources more effectively.
SITA AirportVision, the dynamic media rich flight information display system will also be used in Terminal 4 to provide real-time updates to passengers throughout the check-in and boarding areas.
Adolfo Castro, CEO, ASUR, said: “The opening of the new Terminal 4 here at Cancun is an exciting development and SITA has been our trusted partner on the journey to get here. The design and integrated technologies provided by SITA will ensure that our passengers will enjoy a smooth and relaxed journey through the airport while our airlines will find it easy to operate here”…Fuente: https://www.traveldailynews.com/post/world-class-passenger-technology-powers-cancun-airports-new-terminal
