ARINC Incorporated has been selected to provide advanced passenger check-in systems and related technologies for one of the most ambitious airport projects ever built-the Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.



Dubai is the world`s fastest-growing airport, with annual traffic of 22 million increasing at a 20% rate. To support this growth, the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation has launched construction of the new Terminal 3 and other major improvements, budgeted at more than $4 billion (US). ARINC is part of a consortium led by Thermo LLC., which was awarded the MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) contract for the airport`s Expansion Phase II, Terminal 3, Concourse 2, and Car Park.



This is the largest single airport IT contract ever awarded to ARINC, stated Graham Lake, Vice President for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. We are excited to partner with Thermo and even more pleased to support the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation`s efforts to anticipate travel demands of the 21st century. ARINC will deliver technologies to make Dubai`s new Terminal 3 one of the most efficient airport facilities in the world.



ARINC will provide extensive design, project management, supply management, installation, and commissioning for mission-critical airport systems. Among these will be the ARINC iMUSE common-use passenger system; AirVue flight information display system (FIDS); GateFlow resource management system (RMS); AirDB airport operational database (AODB); and ARINC SelfServ common-use passenger check-in kiosks (CUSS). ARINC will interface its solutions with newly installed systems from third-party contractors, and will integrate new Terminal 3 and Concourse 2 technologies to the existing airport infrastructure.



The $45 million project confirms ARINC`s position as a leading airport integrator, able to fulfill complex requirements in numbers of systems, density of management, and short deployment schedules. The project also positions ARINC to expand its operations further in the Middle East. The completion date is April, 2007.



Alan Sporle, General Manager of Thermo, stated Having formed a consortium with ARINC for specialized airport systems, ALCATEL for telecommunications, and Linkforce for global project management, Thermo LLC has brought together a combined expertise, experience, and quality that is unprecedented and unrivalled in this field.
