Victorian Engineering Excellence Awards 2011
Airbiz Wins Engineering Excellence Award
Airbiz received the Smart Systems Award in the 2011 Victorian Engineering Excellence Awards, for it’s contribution to the development of the Next Generation Check-In for Qantas.
The Next Generation Check-In incorporates new technologies allowing passengers to move through the check in process with speed and ease without experiencing long waiting times in queues. The concept allows frequent flyers to have an even easier transition from kerb to security by simply touching their card on a reader.
The process makes use of RFID technology in the airport environment, and provides the introduction of self service bag drops, automated check in Kiosks, Q bag tags and Q card check in.
The award acknowledges the expertise of the Airbiz team made up of airport and terminal planners, business analysts, project facilitators, simulation specialists and creative strategists, renowned for lateral thinking resulting in innovative and cost effective outcomes.
