Aruba Self Service Check-In First For Caribbean Airport

The Common Use Self Service [CUSS] is a check-in kiosk allowing passengers to check in and print their own boarding passes.

Passengers from different airlines are able to share a single kiosk for check-in themselves.

According to

The start screen shows the logos of all participating airlines. The passenger selects his airline on the touch screen to start the check-in software of that airline. He then identifies himself with a passport or credit card and performs the check-in. After printing his boarding pass, he can proceed to a baggage drop-off point where his boarding pass is scanned and the required number of baggage tags is printed and attached to the luggage.

Although many airports and airlines all over the world have implemented self service check-in kiosks, Aruba’s airport is the first airport in the Caribbean to have this service.
