Check-in solutions: check-in hardware, CUSS platform, check-in applications

Our fully IATA-standardized Common Use Self Service (CUSS) platform and applications provide fast and easy-to-use check-in for all kinds of kiosks at much lower costs in comparison to typical counter check-ins.

It’s your choice: kiosk check-in, web check in or mobile phone check-in. In addition to the CUSS-based solutions, Materna also offers CUPPS-services for staffed counters at airports.

Self Bag Drop: Quick, easy and secure in less than 30 seconds!

With our quick and easy-to-use bag drop solutions we deliver intelligent and state-of-the-art baggage handling. Our self bag drop installations completely fulfill modern security standards and passenger service requirements. Customers choose between different models, depending on their existing infrastructure and special needs. As a full-service provider, we also provide CUSS and CUTE support. Our self-bag-drop solutions are CUSS & IATA RP 1701 f-compliant and support multiple airline DCS.

Materna extended its range of products with a new self-service kiosk for automated baggage drop at airports. The new retrofit kiosk is called Merkur. What’s so special about Merkur is that, although it is designed for unmanned baggage handling, the check-in desks where Merkur is installed can still be used for normal staffed check-in service. Merkur can be deployed flexibly and fits in conveniently with existing conveyor systems at airports. The system provides for the highest levels of security, is easy to operate and can be integrated in the infrastructure of baggage handling halls. Materna developed the kiosk together with their partner company eKiosk, a supplier of complete solutions in the field of info-terminals and kiosk systems. In addition to printers it also includes a scanning module which recognizes and checks any tags on the baggage.

Completely new in Materna’s baggage handling portfolio is the cabin luggage check for the automatic inspection of hand baggage. The system identifies the bags and verifies the compliance with the specific airline rules for cabin luggage. This ensures that only bags which are of correct size and weight will be accepted as hand luggage and avoids time delays while boarding the aircraft. As all Materna solutions the cabin luggage check is a real common use application.

Secure Access: Our solutions for your safety.

Our Secure Access software provides safe access to various kinds of secure areas in airport environments – running in attended or unattended modes. When passengers pass from landside to airside, it checks their boarding passes and verifies the information by comparing it with the airport’s

database. It provides additional information, statistics, peak times, passengers residence and also displays the walking time of passengers to their gate or any gate changes.

Self Boarding: Convinced by efficiency and security

Optimize your boarding process significantly with our Self Boarding Gate solution. After successfully reading the passenger’s boarding pass, the system automatically checks the validity of the passenger data and provides the airline with all the information it needs – without anyone else being involved. The Self Boarding application can be integrated easily into your existing infrastructure and if required, it can also be equipped with a biometric data identification function, such as face recognition.

Our Field and Payment Services throughout our whole solutions range

With our world-wide operations and a strong partner network we favor simplified and constant customer dialogue as well as straightforward processes. A team of certified IT specialists and project managers guarantees customer-oriented, high-quality and well-proven services. If required, we can take care of your service delivery, management and maintenance for the preferred solutions.

With integrated payment services at kiosks or via mobile devices, you provide the best possible service to your passengers. As airport terminal space is limited and passengers expect their experience on the ground to be as convenient as possible, easy payment processes save time and money.
