It has been announced that the Maldives' main international airports, Velana International (MLE) and Gan International (GAN), have implemented Rockwell Collins' ARINC vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing System to improve and increase the speed of check-in processes for passengers.
Rockwell Collins' ARINC vMUSE delivers greater flexibility for airports of all sizes, with an interoperable, web-based solution to manage the entire check-in process with self-service options and scalability to future-proof installations.
'Rockwell Collins has worked with Maldives Airports Company Ltd (MACL) for over a decade,' said Tony Chapman, senior director, Airport Systems Marketing and Strategy for Rockwell Collins. 'In fact, it was our successful relationship as a preferred IT solution partner for MACL that resulted in our new agreement with GAN. We are ideally positioned to support the Maldives airports as they continue to grow.'
The airports are managed by Maldives Airports Company Ltd (MACL) which has worked with Rockwell Collins for more than ten years. This is the first contract with GAN, but MLE has been using the ARINC vMUSE solution successfully, and this announcement recognises a renewal of the current contract.
'We have embarked on the biggest project in the history of Maldives to develop MLE. More than a billion-dollar (U.S.) investment was made to improve the airport infrastructure. Tourism is the largest industry in the Maldives so our airports, and the experience our passengers have, is incredibly important to our overall economy,' said the managing director of MACL, Mr. Adil Moosa. 'Rockwell Collins' ARINC vMUSE enables us to provide a faster and easier check-in experience for our airline customers and passengers. It also enables airlines to share workstations, making the best use of our resources.'
