HIAL have awarded a contract to Flight Solutions, the UK-based airport technology provider, to install its innovative eScan Passenger Verification System across eight of its airports.The new system is expected to be installed at Benbecula, Dundee, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh and Wick in time for the busy summer season. In addition to confirming that every passenger is on a valid flight and permitted to proceed through security to the departure gates, the system will also provide real-time passenger data to HIAL, which can be used to measure passenger flow and queue times.
Inverness Airport will also benefit from an airport-wide rollout of Flight Solutions’ passenger processing systems, including its common use system (CUTE) and common use self-service (CUSS) products. In total ten common-use check-in desks, six self-service check-in kiosks, seven self-service bag drops and six boarding gates are due to be installed at the airport by June 2018.
