Attachmate achives CUPPS certification

Attachmate Corporation announced it has achieved Common Use Passenger Processing Systems (CUPPS) certification for its INFOConnect Enterprise Edition for Airlines Print and Transaction Router (PTR32) solutions. Airlines around the world are working to migrate their technology to the CUPPS platform, gradually replacing the Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE), which is the current check-in and boarding standard. Attachmate is one of the first application vendors to receive this certification.

Attachmate INFOConnect Enterprise Edition for Airlines Print and Transaction Router (PTR32) is a flexible print delivery software solution designed for multi-device airline and travel industry networks, and boasts a new interface that complements the CUPPS platform. PTR32 can be used to print data such as boarding passes, luggage tags and tickets from virtually any source to any peripheral device providing functionality previously provided solely on specialized terminals.

“Continental Airlines recently reached a significant milestone by becoming the first U.S. airline to become CUPPS certified,” said Robert Sloan, senior manager of common use technology for Continental Airlines. “Attachmate is our vendor of choice for its proven terminal emulation and printing solutions, which helped us easily migrate to the CUPPS platform.”

PTR32 complements Attachmate INFOConnect Enterprise Edition 9.0 which modernizes existing mainframe applications out of the box by improving information flow, enhancing user productivity and lowering total cost of ownership.

“Attachmate remains committed to helping our airline customers migrate effortlessly to the CUPPS platform and we are thrilled to be one of the first application vendors to achieve the prestigious CUPPS certification status,” said Barbara Ballard, product manager for Attachmate. “We will continue to invest significant resources into developing standards driven, reliable solutions created specifically for the airline and travel industry.”
