Check-in solutions for airports and airlines –
flexible and easy to use
Passenger check-in is one of our core competencies. We have been a market leader in this field for many years and offer kiosk check-in solutions, mobile and web check-in as well as counter solutions based on CUPPS and CUTE. Materna IPS check-in solutions allow passengers to check-in at a kiosk in a pleasingly short time. Data shows we achieved a record 19.1 seconds for a kiosk check-in at Frankfurt Airport. With our flexible and robust kiosk systems we also offer our certified CUSS platform and application which are fully compliant with IATA RP 1706c and allow easy airline integration.
The user-friendly application offers personal identification, seat selection, upgrades and printing of boarding passes and bag tags. While integrating future technologies into our solutions, we offer biometrics and payment functions for an improved passenger experience. Multiple airlines worldwide use our check-in services for international flights. Thanks to intelligent application hosting and monitoring, we can offer customers all important data, analyses and statistics. On-site maintenance services are provided on request, too.
Space and cost savings
Robust premium hardware
Easy integration of additional functions
Whenever airports expand, restructure or build new terminals they benefit from our Greenfield Solutions. Our standard series provides fully automated kiosk systems which can be integrated into existing infrastructure or be used in brand new terminals. Equipped with modern technology and components they fulfill the highest security and design requirements.
The Materna IPS Flex. Kiosk is based on the Flex.Go design and modular approach. That way it can be adjusted perfectly to the airport environment.
Depending on the customer‘s preferred setup, it guarantees seamless passenger handling, whether as a check-in kiosk (19“ touchscreen) or a tagging machine (13.3“ touchscreen). Especially its small frame makes it the optimal choice for airports that are looking for a space-saving solution that is adaptable to any airport environment. With up to three printers, Flex.Kiosk handles both 1-step and 2-step processing and also offers technologies such as biometrics, RFID and Chip and PIN payment.
The next generation Pax.Go kiosk is an elegant solution for both check-in and self bag drop and has been developed for international markets.
The kiosk has a futuristic design with a flexibly adjustable screen and other features to fully comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Pax.Go is a unique solution because its modular structure supports growing capabilities and additional devices can easily be added as requirements or business processes evolve. With individual screen options ranging from 19 to 32 inches and optimized integrated printing, scanning and reading modules, the kiosk is an industry grade solution for continuous operation. As this solution can be modified easily, it is ideally suited to creating tailor-made configurations for individual customer requirements.
Depending on the airports requirements we offer two other variations of our Pax.Go kiosk. The solid and robust systems can be used for handling both check-in and self bag drop.
With professional printing, scanning, and reading modules the Pax.Go kiosk is an industrial-grade solution for continuous operation. With its integrated printers, the Pax.Go check-in kiosk is the optimal choice for one- or two-step self bag drop and provides paper stock for up to 4,000 boarding passes and 1,200 bag tags. Based on the first alternative model, we offer a version that is much lower than the standard kiosk. It is compliant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design published by the US Department of Justice in September 2010 and equipped with additional controls, e. g. a large panel with hieroglyphic buttons.
In addition to our check-in kiosks which have been well-proven around the world, we also offer web check-in and develop customized solutions.
Web check-in allows passengers to check-in, provide APIS data, select seats, and to print their boarding pass and bagagge tags at home.
Depending on backend system capabilities, this accessible application offers various options throughout all the steps of the process. Once they have completed their check-in process successfully, flight passengers may choose to print out their flight ticket or receive it on their mobile phone or as an e-mail.
Our CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing System) compliant UltraCuse system provides the airport and airlines with a flexible, common use platform for airport check-in counters, boarding gates, sales desks and back-office facilities.
UltraCuse allows any airline or handling agent to use any workstation at any time. Our UltraCuse platform optimizes the use of airport facilities by offering greater flexibility and providing easy access to airline and airport applications. Airports, airlines and groundhandlers benefit from reduced operational costs.
