QUITO - Airport procedures and processes are streamlined using the new Quito International Airport app. The service allows airport processes to be carried out without the need for direct contact, such as online check-in, remote use of the self-check-in and self-bag drop kiosks, and automatic access to the boarding gates. In addition, it incorporates tools for online purchases at the airport and to know the level of availability of spaces at airport parking, as well as information and location of all the services offered by the Quito airport such as car rental, restaurants and cafeterias, shops, etc.
One of the main functionalities of the app is the option to use the self-check and luggage tagging kiosks remotely from your smartphone. To do this, it’s as easy as connecting to the check in kiosk’s WiFi network and scanning the QR code on the screen.
“Quiport remains at the forefront of airport service. The new app, developed by Quiport's Information and Technology department, led by Santiago Andrade and his team, is a great step forward in the automation of airport services. The incorporation of technological
solutions is a global trend in airports and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these types of implementations,” explained Andrew O'Brian, President and CEO of Corporacion Quiport.
