Airline software company SITA has signed a 10-year, 26.7 million U. S. dollars agreement with the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) for a complete upgrade of passenger processing at the country's two international gateways.

Under the agreement, SITA said will upgrade Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi and Moi International Airport (MIA) in Mombasa. This includes the installation of the country's first ever self-service check-in kiosks.

"Working with SITA we are introducing world-leading technology that will provide the best service for both the airlines and passengers using these airports. This technology will also be available at the new Terminal Four in Nairobi when it opens," George Muhoho, MD of Kenya Airports Authority, said in a statement received here Friday.

The installation of the new generation S3 Kiosks by June 2010 will bring passenger self-service to Kenya for the first time and the upgrade of passenger processing to the SITA Airport Connect Open platform will benefit 37 airlines as it allows them to share check-in and boarding facilities.

The Airport Connect S3 Kiosks are environmentally friendly, boasting the smallest carbon footprint in the industry.
