In 2018 Chicago O`Hare Airport celebrated the inaugural flight and the subsequent regular service flights of the British Airways Airbus 380 from Chicago to London. The airport requested a fast lead time solution for a complete terminal with specially reinforced counters to manage the wear and tear of the heavy passenger flows that go hand in hand the with A380. USM Airportsystems completed the project in time with integrated monitor arms, height adjustable keyboards and specially reinforced panels.
Jeddah Airport requested a check-in area to be refurbished but not necessarily replaced. USM Airportsystems was asked to provide a cost effective replacement solution with a short lead time as an alternative to refurbishment. The decision was made to replace the existing counters with USM. The check-in desks have integrated weight displays, printer extension shelves, sunken monitor shelves and lockable CPU compartments.
In 2017 Toronto Pearson International Airport ordered a number of security re-check tables with stainless steel surfaces for extra durability to withstand the daily wear and tear from checking hand-luggage.I hope the resolution of the photos is large enough, I have asked for larger ones but it seems these are the only photos available.
The project with EuroAirport Basel, Mulhouse, Freiburg started in 2015 when we delivered a rental mock-up gate counter for the EasyJet terminal for the airport and users to test the gate. After a few tweaks and a change in colour scheme, the terminal was equipped with 5 double work station gate counters supporting built-in scanners, monitor posts, extension shelves for printers and various other bespoke solutions.
The delivery of 13 mobile gate counters to Oslo Gardermoen Airport is part of the Avinor project which started in 2013
In 2017 USM Airportsystems made the journey up to Northern Canada for an installation at Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport in Yukon. The airport was looking for a more contemporary and durable solution as opposed to traditional millwork. The configuration is a single gate counter in mid-gray and beige panels, to complement the maple wood seating. The desks include 2 extension shelves for the keyboard and printers, two lockable drawers, a customer bag shelf and various cable cut-outs to discreetly manage IT cables.
In 2016 USM Airportsystems installed a number of gate counters at Charleroi Airport in Brussels, Belgium. The desks included storage spaces for the CPUs and extension drawers for printers and keyboards. Here we can see how two desks are placed next to each other to give the appearance of one.
In 2016 USM Airportsystems completed a project at the Los Angeles International Airport to install a modern podium counter in their newly-opened T4 Bus Port. The requirement was for a counter system that was flexible, modular, durable, quick and easy to install, and complemented the space’s aesthetic.
In 2015 and 2016 USM Airportsystems received various orders to deliver security and gate counters for the Cote d`Azur Airport, France.
2015 also saw the completion of a joint design project with the Zürich Airport to create a passport control desk for airlines predominantly operating flights to Non-Schengen countries. The counter aids the last passport check with the passenger list before boarding the aircraft.
In 2015 an order was received for baggage drop-off counters.
Since 2013, USM Airportsystems has developed in cooperation with MIS Choice, a mobile self-sufficient check-in counter complete with UPS and cable winder, CPU, keyboard and monitor support. The concept is to offer hotel and curb-side check-in possibilities for passengers. This project is ongoing.
Sandefjord, Torp Airport, an independent Airport, also decided on USM Airportsystems gate counters.
In 2013 USM Airportsystems in close cooperation with the airport operator Avinor, developed a number of alternative solutions for check-in and gate counters for 46 Norwegian airports. Through identifying passenger handling processes with architects, interior planners and IT specialists, a product handbook was compiled with various counter types and technical integration possibilities to facilitate orders. This project is ongoing.
The project started in 2012 and involved the customized development of 5 security screening units. The limited space available asked for a compact solution with technical specifications to incorporate explosive trace detection units, monitor and keyboard supports. All units have a stainless steel surface. This project is ongoing.
In 2012 USM Airportsystems equipped the Berlin Brandenburg Airport with stationary check-in counters for an interim departure terminal.
The Leipzig-Halle Airport can without doubt be regarded as the "pilot project" for USM Airportsystems. Since 2006 the airport has step by step introduced USM units starting with the administrative offices, VIP lounges and info desk and continuing with a boarding pass control counter, gate counters and various lighting and signage. The project is ongoing.
USM Airportsystems is exhibiting in its headquarters in Münsingen, Switzerland a permanent exhibition of a stationary gate counter and mobile check-in desk equipped with all scanners and printers. Please send us a visitors request if you would like to see the exhibit.
