Multiple airlines benefit from easy application integration and certification. With our great experience, we cover all areas of Common Use solutions, from CUSS and CUPPS to CUWS and CU payments.

Smart biometric solutions for all passenger touchpoints

Innovative biometrics solutions

We integrate full passenger identification at specific touchpoints using face recognition and other biometric solutions. With the Materna solution “Biometrics on the move”, passenger face recognition is activated automatically as soon as the passenger enters a defined area. The passenger does not have to actively interact with the biometric identification system. Find out more about our biometrics solutions.

Integrated payment services

Easy and convenient

Payment solutions, integrated in check-in kiosks and self bag drops, on mobile devices or in web-applications, provide maximum passenger convenience. With our integrated payment systems passengers pay any additional charges regarding their flights directly at the point of request. Find out more about payment services for check-in and bag drop.
