A MORE EF­FI­CIENT NAG­PUR AIR­PORT

SP's Airbuz - - Newescebnt -

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.”
