Materna IPS –
specialized in airport and airline solutions

For more than three decades, we have been a leading player in the aviation industry, focusing on improving passenger handling for airports and airlines.

Our long-term experience in this sector helps us to make passenger handling more efficient. Our aim is to increase capacities, save costs and satisfy passengers even more. Many airports and airlines would like to optimize their passenger flow as part of expanding the capacities at existing terminals. We help our customers to better utilize existing resources. Our solutions for check-in, self bag drop and access systems have already been well-proven by renowned airlines and airports.

We are specialists in software and system integration and also act as general contractors for self-service systems. We work throughout the world with a main focus on Europe, North-America, the Middle East, India and Japan.

As pioneers of Common Use solutions based on IATA-standard we have developed platforms and applications for airports and airlines. In order to meet current and future requirements, we also integrate biometrics and payment technology into our systems.

A great way to start a trip for your passengers.
