Departure Control System
Utilizing an Internet-based Departure Control System (DCS), Radixx simplifies the entire check-in process from start to finish by requiring only a computer and an Internet connection.
Prior to arriving at the airport, passengers can:
- Complete an online Web Check-In.
- Choose from the advance seat selection.
- Pay for additional services such as excess baggage or other ancillary services.
At the airport, passengers can:
- Check in at a counter, receive a boarding pass and automated bag tag.
- Check in via a hand-held device.
- Purchase seats.
- Pay for excess baggage.
- Purchase additional services.
The Radixx DCS offers an extensive array of features and benefits, including:

NOTE: Radixx uses commodity hardware for printers and bar code scanners which cost much less than specialized hardware. Airport agents can print bag tags and boarding passes to any supported printer. Agents can also scan bar codes on the boarding passes which update the Radixx DCS and Radixx Air systems as passengers arrive at the gate to be processed for the departing flight. Passengers may only board if the Radixx DCS matches the passenger to the appropriate flight. This eases and speeds up the gate check-in process.
Common Use Environments / Third Party Ground Handlers
An airline may contract for third party ground handling at some, if not all, airports where flights are operated. For this reason, Radixx supports the following messaging with ground handlers:
- Outbound Passenger Name List (PNL) and Add/Delete List (ADL).
- Inbound Passenger Final Sales (PFS) and Passenger Reconcile List (PRL).
- Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM), Passenger Assisted List (PAL) and Change Assisted List (CAL).
Additionally, Radixx is SITA CUTE, RESA CREWS and ARINC MUSE certified allowing an airline to use the Radixx DCS in a Common Use airport environment.
