Ink Innovation

Put your passengers first. Use our ecosystem of solutions to enhance passenger experience and improve airport capacity

Ink works with airlines, airports and ground handlers to improve passenger journeys by making the airport experience seamless.

Ink solves problems others cannot solve in the required time, with the required flexibility. Its unique ecosystem of mobile passenger handling systems and self-service hardware, blockchain, biometrics and digital identity form part of a modern departure control platform.

Streamlining processes, upgrading airport operations, and unlocking additional capacity within constrained terminal spaces are some of the services Ink provides to airports. Airline customers benefit from reduced aircraft fuel consumption and improved On Time Performance on the ramp.

Ink partners with its customers to deliver effective solutions, regardless of the size of the operations.

The company systems run in over 100 airports, handling more than 30 million passengers per year for over 100 airlines.

Headquartered in Spain, Ink operates worldwide partnering with clients such as Copenhagen Airport, KLM, Jet2, La Compagnie, Flyr, Lift, Menzies Aviation, and Sabre.
