  • CUPPS. Continental Airlines is now boarding passengers at Orlando International Airport using CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing System) technology. With this installment and the WestJet deployment in January, SITA has now fulfilled one of the main requirements for CUPPS to be approved as the new standard for passenger processing by airlines and airports — the successful deployment of the technology with two airlines out of the same airport. SITA’s CUPPS solution is inter-operable with other CUPPS platforms, meaning the application can run on multiple vendor platforms, therefore eliminating the cost to the airline of certifying the application on each platform. SITA’s AirportConnect Open platform is the only fully-integrated, field-tested, common-use check-in and boarding platform capable of supporting CUPPS, legace CUTE, and CUSS (Common Use Self Service) kiosk applications; www.sita.aero.
