SINGAPORE - 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(TM) 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."
