Skyservice Airlines selects SITA APIS solution.
A new agreement with Canadian carrier Skyservice Airlines has been announced by SITA, an aviation IT specialist, for the simplification of passenger processing at over 70 locations worldwide.
The agreement reportedly makes Skyservice the first Canadian airline to adopt SITA's Advance Passenger Information Quick Query (APIS AQQ) solution, which was approved in February by the US Department of Homeland Security.
According to the company, the AQQ service allows the DHS to take control of vetting passenger names against the government's terrorist watch list, before aircraft depart, and then deliver authority to airlines to issue, or not issue, boarding passes as each passenger checks-in.
SITA is delivering to Skyservice Airlines a fully-integrated passenger management system, including reservations and departure control services.
In addition Skyservice has also contracted with SITA for a global managed infrastructure which includes connectivity, LAN, and desktop equipment.
