ARINC has completed the implementation of systems at RAK International Airport, part of the multi-million dollar deal signed a year ago. The systems went live on 1 October.

The 10-year contract signed on 30 September 2012, was to implement multiple airport systems at the UAEís northern emirate airport.

 The project involved the design, supply and installation of ARINCís core suite of airport passenger processing solutions, as well as advanced airport operational systems, including a state-of-the-art vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing Solution (CUPPS), AirVue Flight Information Display System (FIDS) and ARINCís latest generation Airport Operational Database (AODB) AirDB 7 system.

H.H. Engr. Sheikh Salem Bin Sultan Al Qassimi, Chairman of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, Department of Civil Aviation, said, ďRAK International Airportís strategic vision is tied into the larger vision of the emirate of growing tourism, trade and commerce. The growth and progress of Ras Al Khaimah is intrinsically linked to the growth of the airport. We have continuously delivered on all of our promises for this, year including the current expansion phase which is already seeing the airport receiving a steadily increasing number of passengers. We are confident that the ARINC systems which have gone live today 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.Ē

By utilising Virtualisation technology, ARINC has delivered a robust and scalable platform which will enable RAK Airport to grow its passenger processing capability and introduce additional leading edge technologies such as ARINCís remote check-in and bag drop solutions.

The installation of VMuse/CUPPS, L-DCS, AirVue (FIDS), AirDB (AODB), InfoHub and Multi-Channel at the airport, in what will be one of the first off-site hotel check-in and bag drops in the region to be operational within the next few months, will also equip the airport with future intelligence that will change the way in which people use it today.

Tony Lynch, ARINCís Regional Director, Middle East & Africa, said, ďThe vMUSE platform supports legacy CUTE Airline applications as well as next generation CUPPS applications giving RAK Airport the ability to support all current and future Airline applications which comply to IATA standards. AirVue FIDS allows RAK Airport to provide real-time flight information to passengers blended with rich multimedia content such as promotional videos and live TV streaming. The AirDB 7 implementation in RAK is the first global implementation of ARINCís next generation AODB which gives RAK Airport the ability to plan and track operational data and enhance automation of data feeds to key operational teams across the airport.Ē

ďThese technologies will enable RAK Airport to achieve their goal of being a fully automated, integrated airport with previously manual processes such as generating invoices and charge notes to their customers already implemented out of the box. All of these systems, and more, are hosted in a fully Virtualized environment which provides RAK Airport with the ability to easily expand in the future without the need to invest in more Hardware. The ARINC core infrastructure deployed in RAK Airport is a state of the art implementation that we believe will greatly enhance the efficiency, stability and scalability of operations at the airport,Ē Mr. Lynch added.
