EgyptAir Selects ARINC's AviNet® Airport Service at 14 Airports Worldwide.

Thursday 4th July 2013

ARINC Will Also Provide Turnkey Project Management Services.

ARINC today announced that EgyptAir has signed a contract for ARINC's AviNet® Airport service to support check-in operations using the Amadeus ALTEA Departure Control System (DCS).

This new agreement is in addition to another recent contract award.  In March, ARINC announced that it had won a major contract to install its industry-leading passenger processing solution vMUSE™ at five regional airports in Egypt including Sharm El Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, Borg El Arab and Abu Simbel.

As part of the latest agreement, ARINC will install new AviNet Airport services in Egypt and throughout the rest of the world where ARINC vMUSE platforms are operational. In addition to the Egyptian airports, EgyptAir will use AviNet Airport at nine other airports including Brussels, London Heathrow, Berlin, Manchester, and Munich in Europe; Dubai and Cairo in the Middle East; Tokyo Narita in Asia; and Toronto in North America.

In addition to deploying the AviNet Airport service, ARINC will provide turnkey project management to deploy new ALTEA client software to connect the airports to the Amadeus ALTEA host. By providing this end-to-end service, ARINC is able to eliminate a significant portion of the cost as well as provide EgyptAir with a single point of contact, helping the airline effectively manage a major upgrade to its critical airport operations worldwide. ARINC will continue to manage future ALTEA software updates as part of the agreement.

"ARINC's ability to provide a fully managed service eliminates administrative burdens from our team, saving time and money," said Mr. Hassan Nour, Vice President of IT Services at EgyptAir. "And AviNet Airport's reliable connectivity enables us to improve our airport operations globally, which ultimately benefits all of our passengers."

"AviNet Airport continues to gain market share as the choice of major airlines around the world for reliable connectivity to their airport operations," said Tony Lynch, ARINC Director, Middle East Region. "AviNet Airport service is an ideal solution for EgyptAir to access its mission-critical departure control system, anywhere in the world."
