Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), owner and operator of all 5 airports in Abu Dhabi, and SITA, the aviation IT specialist, inked a 5-year deal to turn the emirate's airports into high-tech centres for passenger processing.
SITA will maintain over 350 check-in counters, 24 self-service kiosks for multiple airline use and also upgrade the baggage reconciliation system across Abu Dhabi Airport's 3 terminals, Al Ain International Airport, Al Bateen Executive Airport and Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) terminal and City terminal.

The deal is aimed at bringing sweeping changes to all 5 airports in Abu Dhabi, said an ADAC statement.
Abu Dhabi airport, which saw 11.7% passenger growth in the first half of this year, will become the first major hub in the Middle East to benefit from the new IATA CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing Systems) passenger processing standard following an agreement with SITA to upgrade its AirportConnect CUTE check-in platform to CUPPS now commercially available for the first time.
