NCR Corporation, a provider of consumer transaction technologies, announced it has been selected by Shenzhen Baoan International Airport to deliver kiosks and support services to its new T3 terminal that was opened last year.
Under the agreement NCR will supply 35 NCR TouchPort kiosks and support services. The partnership was made possible through co-operation with TravelSky Technology (“TravelSky”), the chief information technology provider of China’s air travel industry.
TravelSky also provides Shenzhen Baoan International Airport with its passenger departure information system.
The self-service check-in solution offers Shenzhen Baoan International passengers the opportunity to by-pass traditional check-in and reduce the time they might spend in line. It shows how NCR technology solutions can enhance the travel experience at Shenzhen Baoan and we look forward to exceeding their expectations.
Shenzhen Baoan International Airport is a key transportation hub connecting the Pearl River Delta area with national and international reach, and the airport’s passenger volume has been growing steadily.
With an aim to provide travelers with the convenience of self-service check-in at the new T3 terminal, the airport selected NCR for its performance, reputation and compliance with the airport’s platform, the company said.
The self-service check-in solution offers Shenzhen Baoan International passengers the opportunity to by-pass traditional check-in and reduce the time they might spend in line, said Pedro Carrasco, vice president of sales EMEA/APAC, NCR Travel.
The NCR self-service airport check-in solution is fully compatible with the CUSS (Common Use Self-Service) platform and applications used by Shenzhen Baoan International Airport. The kiosks allow passengers to process check-in, check flight information, apply loyalty membership and scan boarding passes.
The kiosks also feature NCR’s patented two-sided thermal paper technology, saving up to 40 percent on paper costs, reducing staff workload for paper replenishment and facilitating group check-in.
NCR is also providing on-site and maintenance services support to ensure the self-service check-in solution performs optimally for years to come.
Today NCR provides airport check-in solutions for three of the top five airlines worldwide. In China, NCR also provides self-service check-in solutions for airlines such as China Southern airlines, China Eastern Airlines and Air China.
