Date 15.11.2022

Inter Handling Ltd. and Nordic Aviation Support® inked an agreement for Ink’s Departure Control System (DCS) to be used at Mariehamn and Turku airports.

Inter Handling will use Ink DCS  to connect passengers between the provincial airports of Turku City and the Åland Islands. The flexibility of the Ink solution will help deliver an enhanced experience through the ability to handle passengers via desktop and mobile. In addition, the system enables Inter Handling to scale its operation and react quickly to passenger demand on the day of departure, making it easy to add or remove processing capacity when required. 

Ola Strangeways, CEO & Founder of Nordic Aviation Support shared “To optimise processes and infrastructure for Inter Handling Finland, we needed to deliver a practical, future-fit solution. We chose Ink because of the high versatility of its mobile platform and the rapid roll-out of a mere five days. Inter Handling will also leverage additional functionalities to help improve the aircraft turnaround process, resulting in better on-time performance and reduced fuel burn for its airline customers.

Together with our business partner Nordic Aviation Support, we are glad to support Inter Handling’s future growth plans both now and well into the future”, added    Blaine Powell, Chief Sales Officer of Ink Innovation.
