ARINC has won a contract to provide Central Japan International Airport with airport technology for managing check-in and departure and baggage messaging.
This contract represents part of the company’s goal to grow its information technology service business in the Asia-Pacific region, said Jim Martin, ARINC’s regional director for the APAC region.
Central Japan International Airport is the main airport serving Nagoya and the Chubu region of Japan, according to ARINC.
More than 20 airlines fly domestic, regional and international flights out of the airport for both passenger and cargo services.
The company said the vMUSE common use system and BagLink baggage messaging technology are designed to automate the airport’s passenger processes.
Centrair won the Best Regional Airport for 2012 at the Skytrax World Airport Awards.
The company is also working with the Air Force to develop electronic flight bags for pilots, who will use the technology to view navigation charts and printed manuals on iPads.
