Fraport Greece Selects SITAs CUTE Technology for 14 Regional Airports

Fraport Greece, which will soon be responsible for operating, maintaining and upgrading 14 Greek regional airports over a 40-year concession period, has selected SITAs common-use terminal equipment (CUTE) to be implemented at all its airports.

Key to the investment in infrastructure is SITAs common-use systems, which will allow the airlines to work seamlessly at the Fraport Greece airports and to share check-in desks, kiosks and boarding areas while accessing their own airline-specific systems.

SITA AirportConnect Open fully integrates solutions both for agents and passengers. It delivers seamless self-service from check-in to security and boarding all the way to border security on arrival. It is Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant, supporting the security requirements of the credit card industry. SITA has supplied its AirportConnect Open solution to more than 420 airports worldwide.

Alexander Zinell, CEO of Fraport Greece, said, Well-managed airports worldwide have proven that they also serve as economic engines for their communities. Our aim is to reposition the 14 airports as modern, competitive gateways that support the growth of the regions and the countrys tourism industry overall. Technology will play a central role in achieving our vision for an improved passenger experience and SITA is a key partner in providing the state-of-the-art technology solutions required."

 In total, Fraport Greece will invest around 330 million in the development of the airports infrastructure until 2020.

Dave Bakker, SITA President Europe, said, With our experience in more than 1,000 airports globally, SITA has the expertise and technology to ensure that we provide the right solution for each airport. Our CUTE solution allows any airline to quickly set up and operate from any of the airports, helping Fraport Greece elevate the experience for airlines as well as their passengers.
