Perth Airport to Implement ACUS

Perth Airport is to implement ACUS cloud-based technology from Amadeus.

ACUS makes use of application virtualisation, allowing passenger processing systems to be accessed and deployed anywhere, on demand.

This means airlines can use the platform from a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device, and enables passengers to be checked-in and boarding passes to be printed from any location. Ground handlers will also be able to handle passenger processing for multiple airlines at the same time from any gate or terminal and from any device.

Any combination of applications can be hosted without any constraint or limitation on the actual workstation or device.

Rowan Chalmers, Perth Airport Executive General Manager Operations and Customer Experience, said, The advanced systems we are delivering with Amadeus will provide a higher level of customer experience. During our selection process, it became clear that Amadeus was the only common use provider to truly deliver on the cloud-based model, bringing clear financial and structural benefits.

The investment in technology aligns with Perth Airports A$1 billion overall transformation of infrastructure.

Moving to the Amadeus cloud-based common use system means we will be able to cut passenger processing costs by more than 25% for our airline partners. That was a key consideration when selecting this new and innovative system, Mr Chalmers added.

This partnership follows the launch of ACUS at Innsbruck Airport, and the major deal signed with The Avinor Group in June to adopt ACUS at the airports it operates in Norway.
