Company Profile

  • Check-in

    Simple, easy to use check-in solutions

    Materna IPS check-in solutions are incredibly fast and allow passengers to manage kiosk check-ins in a short time.

    Our products are based on our certified CUSS platform and are fully compliant with the relevant IATA standards. This guarantees minimal integration effort, the shortest possible project durations and maximum interconnectivity to any other CUSS-based systems that might be in use at your airport.

    Alongside kiosk check-in, we also deliver web check-in as well as counter solutions based on CUPPS and CUTE.

    Our products can be equipped with payment and biometric functions. In addition, on-site maintenance can be provided depending on the customers requirements.

  • Baggage

    Multiple options, one unique user experience

    With our quick and easy-to-use self bag drop solutions, we deliver modular and customisable systems to airlines, airports and ground handlers.

    As a pioneer in self-service solutions, we continuously improve our products which provide both, one-step and two-step processes for self-service bag drop, payment integration and biometric data identification.

    If you are looking to upgrade your existing infrastructure, have a look at our Drop.Go series, which is specially designed as a retrofit solution with its focus on easy integration.

    However, considering a brand new solution, we recommend our flagship Flex.Go series, creating a unique and individual terminal design.

    Regardless of which series you opt for, we guarantee a perfect fit and a process time reduction down to ten seconds, leading to much shorter waiting times.

    Our self bag drop solutions are CUSS- and IATA RP 1701 f-compliant and support multiple airline Departure Control Systems (DCS).

  • Access

    Perfect mix of security and convenience

    Our access solutions offer a reliable, fast and convenient access to airport security areas for passengers and staff.

    We provide certified single or multi-line gates for the following:


    When passengers access airside, our software checks their boarding passes and verifies the information by comparing it with the airport’s database.


    To allow secure access to specific areas such as lounges, our solution does not only validate boarding passes but also checks for corresponding flight times.


    Our self-boarding gates interact with the airline-specific applications based on AEA criteria.
