HERMES CYPRUS SMARTAPP CHECK-IN UNIT
Our innovative cloud-based SmartApp is now available at Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus. The Cypriot airport, which now has six of our mobile check-in units, will thereby add to the excellent service of their staff, leading to dramatic improvements in passenger processes and enhanced customer services. This in turn will contribute to substantial savings in operational costs and queuing times at the airport, thus increasing the airport’s capacity. Our innovative SmartApp completes a full check-in process within 20 seconds. In addition, our service is the only solution that combines check-in capabilities with TravelDoc (fully automated document checks) embedded within the system.

The SmartApp cuts operation costs and offers an alternative to the current costly traditional operating methods. The SmartApp improves customer satisfaction and improves processing time for both airlines and airports.
