Fraport opens self-service gates to speed passengers through 2 Brazilian airports

Fraport Brasil has announced the installation of SITA´s passenger processing technology at Fortaleza Airport (FOR) and Porto Alegre Airport (POA), the two airports it manages in Brazil, the company said.

New self-service gates provide passengers with automated entry to the security checking area with a simple scan of their boarding pass. This will reduce queues and make the process four times as efficient.

Fraport Brasil has implemented a total of 26 SITA self-service gates: 14 at Forteleza Airport (FOR) and 12 at Porto Alegre Airport (POA).

SITA´s solution enables secure checks against the airport systems and manages the integration of third-party hardware and SITA´s software with the existing airport IT infrastructure.

SITA is a provider of airport technology in Latin America, covering all areas, including passenger processing, airport operations, baggage, border management and aircraft communications.

Global airport manager, Fraport AG is active at 30 airports around the world, including Frankfurt Airport (FRA).
