Check-in kiosks

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.

Web check-in

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.

Counter solutions
