Island Air Deploys Kinetics Self-Service Solutions


Hawaii’s leading regional carrier launches Web check-in and self-service kiosks from Kinetics

February 23, 2006, LAKE MARY, Fla. – Island Air, Hawaii’s leading regional airline carrier, has launched a Web check-in solution and self-check-in kiosks from Kinetics, a subsidiary of NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), designed to provide a quick and convenient travel experience to its passengers.

“Kinetics’ solutions provide Island Air’s customers with an even smoother, more efficient way to fly,” said Theresa Heinz, vice president of Kinetics. “With Kinetics’ technology, passengers can travel with the confidence that they have the industry’s most developed self-service check-in solutions to speed them through the airport and on to their flights.”

Beginning this month, Island Air will install Kinetics TouchPort II C self-check-in kiosks initially at its Honolulu International Airport curbside and check-in counter, and then at its Kahului Airport and Kona International Airport terminals. With the TouchPort II C kiosks, passengers can access their itinerary, check-in, check luggage and print their boarding pass by using a credit card.

The Web check-in solution was also launched this month on Island Air’s Web site, allowing passengers to check-in and print their boarding passes online.

“We’re very excited about introducing ‘Island Express’ services to our passengers,” said Island Air CEO Rob Mauracher. “Home check-in on the Web and self-serve kiosks are another example of our efforts to make travel easy and convenient for our customers.”
