Agreement to bring increased efficiencies to airports, airline industry globally

Collins Aerospace and Materna IPS today announced a memorandum of understanding to work together to provide passenger processing for airlines and airports around the world. This focus on creating value from data is a key aspect of this collaborative approach and will result in increased efficiencies and enhanced passenger experiences.

“Materna IPS’s self-service solutions are in line with increasing demand for a full end-to-end self-service journey and complement Collins’ commitment to delivering the next generation of digital solutions to the global aviation ecosystem,” said Rakan Khaled, general manager, Airport Solutions at Collins Aerospace.

Materna IPS is an international service provider for automated passenger handling for airlines and airports, providing self-service hardware, software implementations and service delivery and maintenance.

“Passengers today expect a faster, intuitive and seamless experience,” said Dr. Georg Oschmann, Managing Director of Materna IPS. “Our systems, combined with Collins decades of integrated and intelligent solutions, that touch every aspect of air travel, will give airlines and airports the tools they need to adapt for the needs of increased passenger growth.”

Collins’ Connected Aviation Solutions provide a connected, seamless and sustainable airport experience with a wide variety of software and hardware solutions for airport operations, to include passenger processing and baggage management. All are designed to quickly move travelers from the front door of the airport to the boarding gate for their flight.

Airports and airlines will be able to optimize their passenger processing using the Materna / Collins integrated solution sets, which integrate key data points to monitor, adapt and improve visibility of their operations.
