Exclusive time out at airports

Wanzl Access Solutions supplies access system for NAS airport lounges


Airports are places full of dreams, stories and people. Their destinations differ but wherever a traveller may go, an airport is always only a stopover. To make waiting times as pleasant as possible, NAS, an expert in airport lounge management, provides passengers with an ideal retreat. As an exclusive partner, Wanzl Access Solutions supplies the right access system.

Moments of peace, meetings or simply distraction – NAS airport lounges offer every guest their personal time out. In addition to an attractive interior, meals, drinks and even childcare are available for this purpose. British Airways, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa and EgyptAir are already customers of NAS and welcome their passengers in a "Pearl Lounge". Travellers with a First Class or Business Class ticket can use the lounge free of charge. Access authorisation can also be acquired on the spot. At Marrakesh-Menara Airport travellers already enjoy this convenience and more airports worldwide are to follow soon.

Wanzl’s fully automatic Galaxy Gate access control system guarantees fast, automatic and independent check-in into the lounge. For authentication, the ticket is taken out and simply placed on the barcode scanner in the gate. If everything is correct, a release impulse is given immediately and the ESG-safety glass swivel arms open. ICT.AERO has now joined as a third partner. With this guest management specialist's software, visitor data is efficiently collected, managed and evaluated. This is the basis for continuous process optimisation. It is supported by a central Wanzl dashboard that logs all data and displays it in a perfect format for the lounge operators. The integration of Wanzl's V21 automatic pay station, which will be used in the future to handle automatic ordering processes and ticket purchases, is also currently still in the planning stage.
