ARINC to Implement Cloud-Based Processing System at 5 Intl Airports; Tony Lynch Comments

ARINClogoARINC Inc. has signed two contracts to implement a cloud computing-based passenger processing solution at an airport in Russia and five airports in Egypt.

The Annapolis, Md.-based communications and systems engineering contractor will link 40 work stations at the Kazan airport in the Russian province of Tatarstan to a remote data center, Air Transport World reports.

The company’s vMuze check-in system will help process that airport’s around one million passengers per year, ATW said, while separately supporting traffic at the five regional airports in Egypt.

ARINC said its three-year contract for the Egyptian airports calls for it to implement all systems by the end of May as part of an “aggressive” 14-week delivery schedule.

“We have developed strong relationships in Egypt,” said Tony Lynch, regional director for ARINC Middle East & Africa, who singled out the company’s previous work on the Cairo Airport TB3 and Seasonal Terminal.

“We are pleased to be selected by EAC for these five airports and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
