In an effort to enhance passenger processing as the passenger traffic grows, two Japanese airports will be implementing ARINC's vMUSE Express. The two airports are Naha Airport in Okinawa (OKA) and Kagoshima Airport in Kagoshima (KOJ).
vMUSE is a fully functional multi-user system environment that delivers shared passenger and flight information. As vMUSE Express features virtualised servers housed offsite that can be accessed from anywhere using any device, it helps airports eliminate the need to invest in a core server infrastructure.
As the number of airlines operating in both airports increased, providing each airline a dedicated check-in counter became a challenge due to limited physical space. vMUSE Express addresses this problem by allowing counter facilities to be shared. With it, agents from various airlines can directly log into the Departure Control System at any counter over any device to perform the check-in process for their passengers.
"vMUSE Express offers the scalability needed by growing airport operations like ours, without constant investment in additional infrastructure," said Takeshi Kamimiyata, board member in charge of facilities at Kagoshima Airport Building (KABCO). "Working with ARINC also enables us to adopt a more energy-efficient approach to passenger processing while allowing us to enjoy swift access to key services."
