NEC member T.F. Green Airport in Providence, RI recently announced that it will start using cloud technology for check-ins. The technology, called SITA AirportConnect Open, is used at airports around the world.
In a press release from SITA, the company explained that the switch in technology will correspond with the first international flights to fly out of T.F. Green, expected in June. The new technology should make check-in and boarding easier for international passengers and carriers. The technology’s cost to the airport is scalable and will vary based on airport business.
“As an international airport we need to provide the best facilities to overseas airlines to encourage them to set up routes to Rhode Island. SITA’s airport technology is used by hundreds of airports across the world and installing this system makes it quick and easy for airlines to work here in the same way they operate at other airports. SITA has also provided us with a solution that is hugely flexible and scalable. Because it is a cloud-based service we do not have to invest in infrastructure on site here at the airport and new airlines can be up and running quickly and adding seasonal routes will be easy,” said Kelly Fredericks, president and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation.
The New England Council congratulates T.F. Green on this new technology, which will simplify the flying process for many New England travelers.
