ARINC wins 10-year deal at Ras Al Khaimah airport
ARINC Incorporated has won a ten-year, multi-million dollar contract to supply equipment at systems at Ras Al Khaimah International Airport.
The delivery of the contract will include the design, supply and installation of ARINC’s equipment, which will include airport passenger processing solutions, operating systems and passenger processing systems, otherwise known as CUPPS.
The deal was announced at the 18th World Route Development Forum by regional director, Tony Lynch.
He said that the firm's success was in part due to the company’s close collaboration and consultation with the team at Ras Al Khaimah airport.
“We spent 18 months carefully ascertaining their requirements. From a small hosted L-DCS the scope has been extended to the airport-wide suite of products which has now been ratified.”
Speaking on behalf of Ras Al Khaimah airport, chief executive officer Andrew Glover said: “RAK International Airport’s current expansion will see the airport ready to receive a steadily increasing number of passengers over the next few years. We are confident that ARINC is the right partner in this programme as their refreshing approach and industry knowledge ticks all the boxes for hi-tech, efficient, integrated airports.
"We needed a partner who could embrace the concept of taking the airport out into the wider Ras Al Khaimah, the resorts, hotels and the city. ARINC will partner us on the journey of turning the concept into a reality, bringing the possibility of check-in-less airports one step closer.”
