Amadeus and Off Airport Check-in Solutions (OACIS), are to change the airport check-in experience with the launch of the world’s first ‘pop up’ check-in service.
The company believe the check-in queue will become a a thing of the past with their mobile service that can be set up at any location. Travellers will be able to check-in and drop their bags off anytime and anywhere including a cruise terminal, hotel, train station, or major conference or event – picking up the luggage at their destination.
By using Amadeus’ Airport Common Use Service (ACUS) cloud technology, OACIS can access any airline’s check-in systems in the cloud with just a laptop and internet connectivity.
Sarah Samuel, head of airport IT sales, Asia Pacific of Amadeus says, “In the past, airlines and airports have been constrained by low innovation and legacy technology, but our cutting-edge cloud technology is enabling new business models and opportunities, such as OACIS. By collaborating with innovators, we are transforming the travel experience.”
“Through this partnership, airlines are no longer restricted in the way they manage passenger flow. With OACIS, they can be agile in their service offerings, avoid queues and congestion, and create a better traveller experience. In the future, they may be able to do away with the airport check-in desk all together, opening up that space for other revenue opportunities”added Sarah.
