ARINC Is Chosen for Massive IT Project at Cairo International Airport's New Terminal 3

Contract signingAnnapolis, Maryland—Defying harsh competition, ARINC Incorporated has been selected to provide advanced passenger check-in systems and related technologies for one of the most ambitious airport projects ever built in the Middle East—the new Cairo International Airport Terminal 3.

The Cairo Airport Company (CAC) has launched a $400 million (USD) project which includes construction of Terminal 3 and other improvements, partially financed by the World Bank. ARINC was chosen through a competitive tender process under World Bank procurement rules, and ranked first in both financial and technical evaluations.

Model of Cairo International Airport Terminal 3The IT portion of the project is valued at $22 million (USD). ARINC will provide CAC with extensive design, project management, supply management, installation, and commissioning for 14 mission-critical airport IT systems, from passenger check-ins and displays to biometric gates and ramp control. The Terminal will open in early 2008.

The massive project confirms ARINC’s position as a leading airports integrator, and will feature three major firsts: the first context-aware platform for airport ramp management in the world—automatically switching IT applications according to user profiles; the first self-service CUSS installation in the Middle East region—with ARINC SelfServ™ to speed passengers through check-in; and the first custom Biometric Immigration Gate (BIG) System in Egypt—for streamlined emigration and immigration control.

“Cairo International Airport desires more than just a contractor for its Information Technology Systems (ITS). We want a long-term partner, who will be constantly searching for better, proven, and cost-effective solutions to meet Cairo Airport business needs,” stated General Fathi Fathallah, Chairman of Cairo Airport Company. “We are delighted that ARINC is the successful bidder in the Cairo T3 / ITS tender.”

Ed Montgomery, Vice President and Managing Director for ARINC Europe, Middle East & Africa, said, “With ARINC’s decades of experience and in-depth understanding of market requirements, we are better positioned than any other vendor to partner with Cairo International Airport in finding the fastest, most effective ways to sustain and enhance their growth in this very competitive market, through innovative products and services. We would like to thank the Egyptian Ministry of Civil Aviation, the Egyptian Holding Company for Airports and Air Navigation, and the Cairo Airport Company for awarding us the opportunity to serve the community of airport users in Egypt.”

ARINC will provide its iMUSE™ common-use passenger system; AirVUE™ flight information display system (FIDS); AirDB™ airport operational database (AODB); L-DCS Local DCS; and SelfServ™ common-use passenger check-in kiosks (CUSS). ARINC will also provide the telecommunications backbone to support the new IT systems, including Local Area Network (LAN), Network Management, and Voice over IP (VoIP) systems. ARINC will interface its solutions with systems from third-party contractors, and integrate new Terminal 3 technologies to existing airport infrastructure.

ARINC Incorporated is the world leader in transportation communications and systems engineering. The company develops and operates communications and information processing systems and provides systems engineering and integration solutions to five key industries: airports, aviation, defense, government, and surface transportation. Founded to provide reliable and efficient radio communications for the airlines, ARINC is headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, and operates key regional offices in London and Singapore, with over 3,200 employees worldwide.

I thought the new terminal was supposed to double the airport's capacity upon its completion. What's the new number, 20,000,000? It will probably accommodate slightly less than that number.
