The Finnish independent ground handling provider, Inter Handling, has selected Ink Innovation’s Departure Control System (DCS) to improve the on-time performance (OTP) at Turku and Mariehamn airports in western Finland.

Inter Handling partnered with ground handling systems specialist, Nordic Aviation Support, to seal the deal with Ink.

Commenting on the deal, Blaine Powell, Chief Sales Officer of Ink Innovation said: “Together with our business partner Nordic Aviation Support we are glad to support Inter Handling’s future growth plans both now and well into the future.”

Ink DCS will be used to connect passengers between the regional hubs of Turku City and the Aland Islands. The flexibility of Ink’s solution will help deliver an enhanced experience through its ability to handle passengers via desktop and mobile. The system will also enable Inter Handling to scale its operation and react quickly to passenger demand on the day of departure.

“To optimise processes and infrastructure for Inter Handling Finland, we needed to deliver a practical, future-fit solution,” said Ola Strangeways, CEO & Founder of Nordic Aviation Support.

“We chose Ink because of the high versatility of its mobile platform and the rapid roll-out of a mere five days. Inter Handling will also leverage additional functionalities to help improve the aircraft turnaround process, resulting in better on time performance and reduced fuel burn for its airline customers.

As a cloud-hosted departure and control platform capable of running across a range of devices, Ink DCS combines a Plug-and-play Web Check-in, Desktop DCS, Disaster Recovery, Ink Mobile, Kiosk Check-in and Bag Drop according to each station’s needs in a single connected platform. It is certified on all major CUTE platforms: SITA, RESA, Rockwell Collins, Aena and Amadeus.
