Atlanta, GA, December 16, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Quantum Aviation Solutions completed its first BagScan installation in India at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA). BagScan was implemented to provide a common-use baggage tracking and reconciliation system (BTRS) to the community at the airport’s newly developed domestic Terminal 1D (T1D). The use of BagScan at a domestic terminal demonstrates the airport’s commitment to passenger security and customer service.
Through Quantum’s partnership with ARINC, and in working with IGIA and the airline community, the baggage management, reconciliation and load planning needs of the community are being met.
"As a niche provider, Quantum adapts quickly to the changing needs of our clients, helping to provide a flexible solution and meet the community's service expectations," said Garry Earner, VP, EMEA. "We take great pride in our product, delivery capability and attention to service and support. In partnership with ARINC, Terminal 1D represents yet another on-time delivery of our BagScan baggage reconciliation and tracking solution. We look forward to delivering the Quantum experience to other airports and airlines alike in India."
The implementation broadens Quantum's existing partnership with ARINC. Randy Pizzi, Vice President and Managing Director of ARINC’s Asia Pacific Division commented "Our relationship with Quantum was a strategic asset as we undertook this significant project at Indira Gandhi International Airport. IGIA marks an exciting entry into baggage reconciliation services for the growing aviation market in India. We look forward to future product development with Quantum as they continue to provide client-focused, leading edge technology that has proven to streamline operations and increase passenger satisfaction."
Quantum’s BagScan delivers baggage reconciliation, management and tracking functionality to airlines at IGIA including IndiGo, Jet Airways, JetLite, Kingfisher Airlines and SpiceJet.
With its high performance features, BagScan has helped airports and airlines raise their on-time performance, passenger satisfaction, and employee productivity, while significantly reducing incidences of lost or mishandled baggage and related operating costs. BagScan is currently deployed at many airports world-wide, and is also serving multiple airline and airport operations as a centrally hosted, SaaS (Software as a Service). BagScan is part of the BagSuite solution which optionally includes BagTrail, allowing airlines to track baggage across their whole network.
