The Schalter CUSS terminal is the only terminal manufactured in Brazil certified with the CUSS standard (Common Use Self-Service) for use in airports. The terminal was certified in Tulsa, in the USA.
The Schalter CUSS follows the standard established by the IATA (International Air Transport Association), with the purpose of enabling the shared use of self-service terminals used in airports by airline companies.
The airport operators and airline companies in their dedicated terminals need to effectively and quickly process a maximum number of passengers in a limited space. Increasingly, the major airports need to expand their capacity without increasing the size of the buildings. Normally, this means reducing the space occupied by baggage checking and check-in and allocate this space to generate additional revenue from concessions, for example, stores, food courts, etc.
In the CUSS standard, the airline companies share the same equipment, without the need for individual investments, and the terminal belonging to the airport concessionary.
The Schalter terminal enables airline companies as well as concessionaries (operators) of the airports to offer a greater variety of services, in addition to the simple issue of airline tickets. Thanks to its financial system (PINPAD and security items), it can generate accessory revenue in the offer of other services, such as parking payment, baggage checking, charging for excess baggage, ticket sales, ticket changes, and even services such as on-board snacks and sale of drinks, seat preferences, adding fees for leg space, etc.
The Schalter CUSS terminal is characterized as a complete piece of equipment capable of providing the best experience for the user and was developed to allow for numerous settings as needed by the operator.
