Airline selects NCR self-service check-in solution and multi-vendor support services
BEIJING, China, March 6, 2014 – Shenzhen Airlines has selected NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, to provide self-service check-in solutions. The agreement also includes multi-vendor, on-site support services for new and existing airport check-in kiosks throughout China.
The new self-service kiosks will be deployed at Shenzhen Baoan International Airport, the hub for Shenzhen Airlines. The purchase marks the first time the airline has turned to a foreign provider for this technology. Shenzhen Airlines will also rely on NCR Travel to maintain existing kiosks for airports in Nanjing, Nanning, Xian and Shenyang by providing on-site maintenance support services and parts.
“The addition of Shenzhen Airlines further strengthens our presence in China and demonstrates the growing awareness within the region for NCR as a global service provider, as we currently support many of the country’s banks and retailers,” said Pedro Carrasco, vice president of sales EMEA/APAC, NCR Travel.
NCR airport check-in enables passengers to check in, access flight information, select seats, and scan and print boarding passes. The NCR airport check-in kiosks run on common use self-service (CUSS) platform, which allows applications from other allied member airlines to run concurrently on a single self-service device. Onsite support services ensure maximum availability and NCR’s patented two-sided thermal paper technology saves up to 40 percent on paper boarding pass and receipt costs, reducing staff workload for paper replenishment.
Today, NCR provides airport check-in solutions for seven of the top ten airlines worldwide.
