An IT-enabled unified check-in solution for airports developed by Asteros Labs is soon expected to improve passenger and luggage check-in in the Ufa International Airport in Bashkortostan, in the mid-Volga area, following an agreement inked between Asteros and the airport management, Asteros Labs announced. Set up in December 2010 to immediately join the Skolkovo state-sponsored innovation hub outside Moscow, Asteros Labs has developed what it defines as a ?common check-in solution providing access to a variety of departure control systems? in use at airports across the planet. The start-up?s Asteros Contact Avia system is primarily designed to streamline the check-in process, minimizing passenger line-ups and stepping up luggage check-ins. In this unified check-in approach, possible changes in operation, whether it?s new staff or additional check-in data, entail no reconfiguration of a counter.
