Noi Bai International Airport in Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi, can expect smoother handling with the announcement that Hanoi Ground Services, a subsidiary of Northern Airports Corporation, is implementing SITA Departure Control Services.
The system is provided by air transport IT specialist SITA and is used by 108 airlines and ground handlers in over 300 airports worldwide to process more than 121 million passengers per annum. SITA Departure Control Services provides fully automated boarding, check-in, security information services and Interline Through Check-In (ITCI) which simplifies passenger processing and reduces flight connection times. Fuel costs and loading errors are also reduced with the system’s new Weight and Balance module.
Bui Tuan Anhm, Director of Hanoi Ground Services, commented: “As we develop the airport in the future, SITA’s system will support the improvements such as new self-service offerings for our passengers.”
Project implementation began in October 2011 and it is expected to be fully operational in January 2012. Noi Bai International Airport serves 32 airlines, flying to more than 60 destinations worldwide, and handles 10 million passengers per annum.
