The Maldives’ two main international airports, Velana and Gan, are now using Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE Common Use Passenger Processing System to improve airport processes, while expediting the check-in process for passengers.

Velana recently renewed its existing contract with Rockwell Collins while Gan has signed a new agreement with the company.

“We have embarked on the biggest project in the history of Maldives to develop Velana. More than a US$1bn investment was made to improve the airport infrastructure. Tourism is the largest industry in the Maldives so our airports, and the experience our passengers have, is incredibly important to our overall economy,” explained Adil Moosa, Managing Director of the Maldives Airport Company. “Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE enables us to provide a faster and easier check-in experience for our airline customers and passengers. It also enables airlines to share workstations, making the best use of our resources.”

ARINC vMUSE is aimed at providing a more efficient and cost-effective check-in solution for travellers by endowing airlines with operational flexibility while making the best use of an airport’s existing infrastructure.

“Rockwell Collins has worked with Maldives Airports Company for over a decade,” added Tony Chapman, Senior Director, Airport Systems Marketing and Strategy at Rockwell Collins. “In fact, it was our successful relationship as a preferred IT solution partner for the company that resulted in our new agreement with Gan. We are ideally positioned to support the Maldives airports as they continue to grow.”
