13 February, 2018: Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, known as OMA, has signed an agreement with Rockwell Collins for its ARINC vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing System (CUPPS) to boost flexibility of airport resources and passenger check-in at eight Mexican airports.
“Our Latin American team worked closely with the OMA Group to accommodate its need to leverage existing virtual infrastructure at each airport,” said Yun Chong, global head of sales, Airport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Our customized solution will offer OMA’s airports increased operational efficiency as travel demands increase in the region.”
vMUSE optimizes existing airport infrastructure by seamlessly enabling multiple airlines to share common terminal facilities. For example, different airlines may share the same check-in areas and/or boarding gates. As the number of airlines serving an airport continues to expand, they will be able to access the CUPPS compliant vMUSE system without the need for complex infrastructure implementation costs.
vMUSE is at present operational at Mazatlan and Zihuatanejo airports. By 2019, the system will be installed and operational at Acapulco, Culiacan, Chihuahua, Monterrey, Reynosa and San Luis Potosi airports.
