Cancun, Q.R. – Cancun’s International Airport has updated its technology to accommodate the millions of passengers that pass through it each year.
The new technology referred to as “shared resources”, now includes more than 200 kiosks that share information in all three terminals. This will help airport officials better process visitors with more accuracy and less time.
Eduardo Rivadeneira Nunez spokesman for ASUR Cancun explains, “The technology is relevant at the airport. There are counters with shared resources…no encrypted code reader and kiosks for faster documentation to facilitate the experience of passengers using the facility.”
The new shared resources means that airlines can use the information as they need because there is no fixed allocation between terminals 2 and 3. There are currently 200 kiosks with another 35 being added by the end of the year.
Aeropuertos del Sureste (ASUR), through SITA technology, continues to install the kiosks to better serve travelers. Last year, there were just over 17 million travelers pass through the Cancun International Airport. With the airport’s expansion of Terminals 2 and 3 and the addition of Terminal 4 as well as the installation of kiosks, ASUR says it will be able to accommodate 25 million people.
“The technology is increasing and more and more visitors who use it have a better travel experience,” said Laura Fernandez Pina, Secretary of Tourism of Quintana Roo.
Cancun is the main destination for beaches in Mexico, and it’s through the Cancun airport where the largest number of international visitors arrive that require the technology, she said.
