Noida International Airport (NIA) has signed an agreement with Amadeus to implement passenger processing system (PPS) that will revolutionise the travel experience for passengers. The agreement covers the provision of various services, including common use check-in, boarding, baggage reconciliation, and the integration of biometric capabilities through the DigiYatra platform.
Amadeus to provide Experience Capabilities
Amadeus will be responsible for designing, supplying, commissioning, operating, and maintaining the end-to-end PPS on a cloud-hosted platform specifically tailored to meet the requirements of Noida International Airport. With a strong focus on passenger convenience, the PPS will incorporate advanced features such as biometric-based DigiYatra integration, enabling smooth and hassle-free experiences at every touchpoint.
Christoph Schnellmann, Chief Executive Officer, Noida International Airport, said, "We are pleased to partner with Amadeus for the passenger processing system at Noida International Airport. Amadeus is a leading global travel technology company, and its rich experience and stable suite of digital solutions will support NIA in delivering world-class services. This is a significant step forward in our endeavor of facilitating fast, safe and convenient journeys for travellers."
Sarah Samuel, SVP Airport and Airline Operations, APAC, Amadeus said, "Noida International Airport and Amadeus are working to co-create the digital passenger experience of the future. We look forward to supporting an end-to-end airport journey based on innovative cloud, self-service and biometric technology that delivers a smooth and relaxed airport experience. This partnership is an important milestone for Amadeus in the Indian market and beyond, showcasing the strength of our technology in supporting airports’ growth from the ground up."
One of the key highlights of the project is the integration of self-service touchpoints throughout the airport. This includes check-in kiosks, automated bag drop facilities, and eGates, all of which will be seamlessly connected in real-time with airline departure control systems and other stakeholders. This integration will ensure efficient coordination and enhance the overall travel experience for passengers.
