Self Service

Called Common Use Self Service, or CUSS, these kiosks allow passengers to check in conveniently for flights using their e-tickets anywhere in the airport, as well as at car rental offices, train stations and other facilities, generating a savings of $2.50 per passenger and alleviating congestion.

One kiosk can be used by passengers of different airlines, making it unnecessary to search the airport for the correct check-in stand. E-tickets and self-registration kiosks are measures developed as part of the IATA's "Simplifying the Business" program.

In Moscow, Sheremetyevo Airport installed nine self-registration kiosks about six months ago. At this point, only KLM is connected to the CUSS system, Delta is testing the system and Aerosvit is discussing connection, a Sheremetyevo representative said.

Domodedovo Airport plans to complete installation of the first CUSS kiosks in its international terminal by the end of this year, according to an airport news release. Next year, 4 percent of Domodedovo passengers are expected to use the kiosks, growing to 30 percent when all of the planned kiosks are installed.

CUSS kiosks are also to be installed at Paveletsky Station and possibly in hotels.

Self-registration is to be offered to passengers with no checked baggage, but eventually is to be available to all passengers.

Vnukovo Airport currently does not offer CUSS but is planning to install the kiosks.
