Sharjah enhances common-use facilities.

Following a 36% rise in passenger traffic last year, Sharjah International Airport has upgraded its SITA check-in systems. Dr. Ghanem AI Hajri, Chairman of airport owner Sharjah Aviation Services, said: "There has been tremendous 36% growth in passenger traffic over the last year, partly because we are now the home base for the Middle East's first low-cost carrier, Air Arabia, which is experiencing great success. "SITA is helping us to drive business transformation through the smart deployment of IT systems tailored to our customers' specific needs and we have decided now to upgrade to AirportConnect CUTE, a web-enabled version of CUTE, as part of our overall airport expansion plan."

The technology will support 105 check-in counters and workstations, which will maximize the airport's terminal space and use of shared infrastructure, thereby reducing the need for additional dedicated check-in facilities.

The locally-hosted AirportConnect CUTE system at Sharjah International Airport is based on Windows XP supports passenger processing applications such as departure control and boarding systems and is capable of full integration with airport operations systems such as flight information displays and baggage management systems.
