Arinc, a provider of communications, engineering and integration products for commercial, defense and government customers worldwide, said this week it is moving its flagship airline check-in application, vMUSE Enterprise, from a private cloud to the Enterprise Cloud offered by Verizon’s Terremark subsidiary.

Arinc’s vMUSE Enterprise application is a certified Common-Use Passenger Processing System (CUPPS) that delivers check-in and departure functionality in real time over a standard Internet connection.

The two companies have already expanded the cloud-based business model to South America, completing a proof-of-concept in August at Brazil’s Guarulhos International airport.

“By aligning Arinc’s vMUSE Enterprise with Terremark’s enterprise-class cloud, we are launching a global transformation of the way IT services are delivered to the airline industry,” Michael Picco, vice president of Arinc Airport Solutions, said in a statement.

Arinc also plans to augment its vMUSE Enterprise offering with cloud-based services for checking baggage, printing boarding passes and upgrading flights.
