Travellers on the Cape Verde islands can now enjoy a luggage-free experience from their hotel to the airport terminal thanks to Amadeus’ Airport Common Use Service mobile solution.

Amadeus has collaborated with ASA Cape Verde Airports to implement the ACUS solution at Sal International and Boa Vista Rabil airports, two of Cape Verde’s largest international airports.

The cloud-based solution enables travellers to check in and drop their bags off at hotels in Cape Verde and follow their luggage to the airport terminal when ready. Boarding passes and bag tags are issued by Cabo Verde Handling agents in travellers’ holiday resorts and bags are then transported to the airport by the ground handling firm.

The time gained from the efficient airport check-in and bag-drop process enables holidaymakers to maximise the last day of their stay, unencumbered by their suitcases, and simplifies the airport experience upon arrival at the terminal.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with ASA and Cabo Verde Handling to improve the experience of travellers on the islands. With the steady growth of tourism in Cape Verde, it is important to simplify airport infrastructures to welcome new passengers,” said John Jarrell, Head of Airport IT at Amadeus.

“The ability to have a luggage-free journey from hotel to airport is a significant advantage for passengers and is just one of the ways in which both airports and customers can benefit from our ACUS agreement,” he added.
