A simpler more efficient common use service

Instead of every airline paying for connections to every airport, and every airport managing its own server, ACUS uses our data centers to host and update everything in the cloud. This drastically reduces the amount of connections required, creating a simpler more efficient common use service.

One connection is all it takes

With ACUS, each airport only needs one connection to our data center, which needs only one connection to each airline. That’s all it takes. You can replace dozens of connections, with just one.

Connect new airlines quickly and easily

If you get a new route or carrier who is already on ACUS, we can simply and centrally ‘switch on’ the connection for that airline. So you can set up your new airline in a matter of weeks, not months.

Receive regular updates and improvements

Because ACUS is centrally hosted, updates can be rolled out regularly and quickly without delays caused by the need to update local infrastructure at your airport.

Access anytime, anywhere

Because ACUS is managed in the cloud, you can access your system and manage your airport operations anywhere with an Internet connection, both at the airport and offsite.

Connect with a single, web-enabled device

ACUS is cloud-based. So you can connect to multiple airline departure control systems, as well as many other applications through a single, web-enabled device.

One device is all you need

With ACUS cloud-based technology, you can connect to all of your DCS as well as numerous other applications with just one web-enabled device.

Ensure reliability and security

ACUS is securely hosted in our state-of-the-art data center; one of the world’s largest data processing centers dedicated to the travel industry.

A leading, cloud-based solution

At Amadeus, we created a leading cloud-based common use platform, so our customers can enjoy the benefits of cloud technology.

Flexible, scalable and mobile

ACUS allows airports to be more flexible in responding to increasingly complex airport environments.

Reduce congestion with new customer touchpoints

Our cloud infrastructure allows your agents to manage operations both at the airport and offsite. This creates new customer touchpoints where and when needed, and helps remove congestion.

Offer 'on-demand' capacity

Amadeus also provides hardware workstations that can be adapted to your needs, for example thin clients and laptops, which give you the flexibility to offer ‘on-demand’ capacity.

Integrate with Airport Pay

The ACUS platform supports Amadeus Airport Pay, a multi-merchant payment solution that lets passengers pay for additional ancillary services at the check-in counter.

Access all applications anywhere, anytime

All ACUS applications are hosted in the cloud, making them accessible anytime, anywhere – with a web-enabled device and Internet connection.

Join a strong and growing community

Launched in 2014, Amadeus ACUS is used in several airports around the world and supports the operations of 140+ airlines globally.

Save on infrastructure costs

ACUS significantly reduces a range of infrastructure costs, including connectivity, training, hardware, licensing and maintenance costs.

Use one connection to scale your business

ACUS offers you the opportunity to scale up your business with a single connection to our cloud-based solution.

Simple to join

If an airline which is already on ACUS wants to be ‘turned on’ at a new airport, they just need to connect to the ACUS platform at that airport. It’s that quick and easy.

Keep up-to-date with latest updates

Our community platform ensures you always have the latest product updates to manage flight and passenger operations.
