Papua New Guinea’s National Airports Corporation Closer To 2030 ‘Smart Airports’

NAC Efforts Focused On Port Moresby Jacksons International Airport

By 2030, the National Airports Corporation (NAC) of Papua New Guinea will operate 15 smart airports to accommodate the evolving security requirements and new International Air Transport Association (IATA) initiatives. To achieve this goal, NAC has renewed its contract with Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Airport Solutions for its Port Moresby Jacksons International Airport (POM).

"Our work with Rockwell Collins dates back five years," said Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the NAC Richard Yopo. "Their proven expertise and depth of experience working with airports of all sizes across Asia was a key factor in our selection decision. We are confident that with the deployment of these solutions, we will be able to improve the passenger experience, streamline the passenger reconciliation processes and strengthen security at the airport. Most importantly, it enables us to provide a consistent model for passenger processing for all airlines that operate at POM Airport."

Included under the contract, Rockwell Collins’ ARINC vMUSE, AirVue, AirDB, AirPlan and Veripax will provide:

  • Passenger processing capabilities that enable the NAC to focus on a singular suite of check-in applications
  • Flight information display systems
  • Operational database
  • Optimization of passenger flow at security checkpoints by complementing existing manual processes by enabling the verification of flight and boarding pass information
  • In addition to the renewal, Rockwell Collins will provide NAC with a local departure control system and baggage reconciliation solution.

“The latest version of vMUSE will optimize business operations by providing the NAC with data analytics to monitor what’s working and what needs further attention,” said Yun Chong, global head of sales, Airport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “We are honored to be a part of NAC’s smart airports mission and value our collaborative relationship in customizing a solution for POM.”

The NAC owns and operates 22 national airports in Papua New Guinea. POM is the country’s main airport.
