In a highly competitive bid, Rockwell Collins has been awarded a contract by International Airlines Group to replace the current check-in technology in Terminal 7 (T7) at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) with the company’s common use passenger processing platform (CUPPS).
Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will provide its ARINC vMUSE™ solution at the airport’s T7 international terminal, used by over 10 major international carriers, to provide an enhanced check-in experience for passengers and their baggage.
The new contract also includes the use of Rockwell Collins’ ARINC AviNet® network and message solution which provides a secure, fast and efficient way to communicate flight operation, aircraft maintenance and other critical messages that have a direct impact on airline operational efficiency.
“JFK is the busiest international airport gateway into the United States and Terminal 7 is a premier location for flights into and out of the U.S.,” said Paul Hickox, head of Airport Systems Sales for Rockwell Collins. “ARINC vMUSE provides the type of services—like a fast and convenient check-in experience – that international travelers have come to expect from the world’s leading airports.”
