A MORE EFFICIENT NAGPUR AIRPORT
The Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) will implement common use passenger processing solutions for check-in, boarding and baggage tracking from SITA. The Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) and Common Use Self Service (CUSS) allows any check-in desk, kiosk or gate position to be utilised by agents of any airline, leading to a more efficient use of terminal space and equipment. VS Mulekar, Senior Airport Director, MIHAN Airport said “MIHAN is the single biggest publicly-funded development project in India. It is essential we have the right technologies in place to make sure the airport’s operations are highly efficient and that they are future-proofed for growth. SITA’s technology has proven successful in other airports in India and across the world and I have no doubt it will ably support MIHAN’s requirements.” The MIHAN project is attempting to convert the current Nagpur airport into a major cargo hub with integrated road and rail connectivity.
Maneesh Jaikrishna, SITA Vice President Indian Subcontinent, Eastern & Southern Africa said “SITA’s solutions will allow the airport to cater to increasing traffic without having to invest in additional infrastructure. They will be able to provide best-in-class facilities for airlines and passengers alike. This is part of our commitment to making India not only one of the biggest aviation markets, but increasingly more efficient and passenger friendly.”
