Also the airports of Olbia, Bari and Brindisi have selected Paxtrack from RESA for the Security Check stations in order to improve service and gain more information about the transit of passengers. Paxtrack operates with both fixed gate stations and on mobile terminals. At Aeroporti di Puglia the installation includes the use of fixed gate from Kaba as well as a number of Zebra/Motorola terminals managed by the Security personnel. In conjunction with Crews, Paxtrack also captures data from Gate and Check-in stations for a full integration of the systems. To date in Italy Customers who have chosen Paxtrack are the airports of Rome (Fiumicino and Ciampino), SAC Catania and Comiso, ADB Bologna, Geasar Olbia, AdP (Bari and Brindisi).
With the end of 2016 approaching new important Customers have decided to implement iPort starting from 01/01/2017. Amongst these the airports of Ancona, Cagliari, Perugia, Pescara, Trieste and Trapani. For these airports we are also implementing tools to manage Telex messages to feed Airport or third party systems.
The AVIAVOX solution for public announcements, based on phonemes which allow to send announcements in over 24 languages in a perfect diction and indistinguishable by the human voice (http://aviavox.com/#listen), has recently been adopted by SEA Milan and AdB Bologna airports and is now being implemented. Announcements therefore result to be “natural” and indistinguishable from the human voice in all supported languages, thus increasing communication between the airport and the passengers and providing active support for airport noise pollution management, while creating a less frantic and more professional environment.
Bologna Airport has integrated Paxtrack from RESA at the Security Check in order to improve service and acquire information regarding the transiting passengers. Comiso Airport has also chosen PaxTrack for operations at its Airport in connection with Catania Airport which also uses the solution.
Aeroporti di Roma has acquired new licenses and functions of PaxTrack system as well as installing the Kaba automatic gates for a fully automatic process. PaxTrack can also be used to manage the Fast Track gates or similar (VIP lounge, privileged access points) to allow the adoption of automated management procedures. Currently over 30 million passengers per year are handled in Italy with PaxTrack.
Installations continue on board the Costa Crociere cruise ships on which the print of baggage tags have been activated for passengers to some airports / carriers to allow these to show up at the airport, having already available both boarding cards and luggage already labeled.
The strong growth of iPort DCS continues. The installed base in the world has come to manage more than 25 million passengers. In Italy during 2016 several Customers have joined the group including Aeroporti Toscani (Pisa and Firenze) and Parma Airport. Now also A.G.S. Handler utilizes iPort at Verona and Milano Malpensa, whilst Aviation Services has decided to implement iPort on all their Airports (Fiumicino, Ciampino, Napoli, Bologna, Catania).
