ARINC to wire up Vietnam airport

From flight info display to check-in, Noi Bai airport’s new terminal will be ready for expansion.

Maryland-based ARINC, Inc. has recently been chosen to integrate the technologies at the upcoming Terminal 2 of Vietnam’s Noi Bai International Airport (HAN). 

ARINC said it has been chosen as a subcontractor by Taisei-Vinaconex Joint Venture (TVJV), the company overseeing the construction of the new terminal. 

ARINC will deploy some of its technologies as the international airport gears up for expansion. As one of the largest airports in Vietnam, Noi Bai is set for expansion under funding from Japan official development assistance (ODA), according to Vietnam Ministry of Transport and Northern Airports Corporation. The new terminal is expected to be completed next year and will be capable of handling 10 million passengers annually. 

“Noi Bai International Airport is one of the largest airports in Vietnam. In anticipation of its continued growth and economic development, we need passenger handling systems to be both robust and reliable,” said Yoshiaki Takimoto, spokesperson, TVJV. “We are confident of ARINC’s expertise and track record in passenger processing technologies and in fulfilling our requirements for operational efficiency at the new terminal.” 

ARINC will be deploying its common use passenger processing system-compliant vMUSE workstations at Terminal 2 and the SelfServ common use self service kiosks. The airport will also be using the VeriPax Passenger Reconciliation System and Flight Information Displays to support the check-in applications of Noi Bai’s airlines. 

Michael DiGeorge, managing director, ARINC, Asia Pacific said: “We are extremely pleased to be awarded this contract by Taisei Corporation, and excited to be able to implement our products and services at HAN to modernise its systems with the latest in fast travel technologies and processes.” 

ARINC has already implemented several other similar jobs with other airports worldwide. Just recently, it has been awarded the contract by Central Japan International Airport (Centrair) to maintain the passenger and check-in systems at the airport.
