August 27, 2013, Orlando, FL – AirIT, the leading provider of innovative information technology products and services to the air transportation industry, today announced that Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) has chosen to implement AirIT’s Extended Airline System Environment (EASE™) shared use technology to augment the airport’s conventional passenger processing capabilities.
As a part of the City of Austin Aviation Department’s airport master plan, AirIT will add EASE™ in a limited gate and ticket counter installation to be utilized by ten commercial airline carriers. The innovative virtualized passenger processing platform is scheduled to be operational by October 15, 2013.
Austin-Bergstrom Airport joins 28 other airports who have recently installed the AirIT EASE™ shared use platform. With more than 90 airlines operating on EASE™ today, the platform allows the airport the ability to maximize operational efficiencies by facilitating the sharing of ticket and gate resources and eliminating the need for costly brick and mortar projects. And unlike the more costly common use technologies such as CUTE and CUPPS, the EASE™ platform is a virtualized “open” technology that allows airlines to utilize their native passenger processing applications further reducing the time and cost of deployment and support.
Comments Chris Keller, AirIT President and COO, “AirIT is very pleased that the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport chose our shared use solution for their passenger processing platform. We know that the airport and its airline partners have a choice of technologies and we’re proud to be able to provide Austin-Bergstrom with the capability of flexibly managing their resources while simultaneously providing their airlines with world-class service at a much lower cost.”
“AirIT will help us get the most out of our facilities and resources by facilitating multiple carrier use of our gates and ticketing areas,” said Patti Edwards, COO of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. “Such optimization of our facility allows us to present more travel options to our customers.”
