ARINC has announced the completion of its implementation of vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing Solution at Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
Ras Al Khaimah, literally meaning ‘the top of the tent’ shares a border with Oman and its International Airport is seeing increasing numbers of passenger throughflow steadily each year. The airport has been undergoing an expansion plan and ARINC’s technological solutions will help to bring the airport greater efficiency and will optimise capacity.
Chairman of RAK International Airport, H.H. Engr. Sheikh Salem Bin Sultan Al Qassimi, said: “We have continuously delivered on all of our promises for this year, including the current expansion phase which is already seeing the airport receive a steadily increasing number of passengers. We are confident that the ARINC systems will make us a hi-tech, efficient and integrated airport. We are already pioneering several firsts and ARINC is the right partner who has embraced the concept of taking the airport out into the wider Ras Al Khaimah, the resorts, hotels and the city.”
ARINC vMUSE solutions bring virtualisation technology into the equation and provide multiple airline check-in facilities that do not require multiple check in desks. The space saving benefits can be realised immediately in smaller airports, allowing for reduced operational costs, up-front capital expenditure and the near elimination of on-site infrastructure spending.
Ras Al Khaimah is now planning the next step in their expansion as they plan to offer remote check-in and self-service bag drop facilities. ARINC’s technology will play an important part in the plan.
