Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE)

Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE)
Budget:  $1.9M
Project Start:  January 2020

Substantially Complete:  November 2020

Through the use of non-proprietary software and hardware, CUTE systems allow passenger processors like the check-in counters and the gate counters to be used by any airline at any time rather than having groups of dedicated counters fitted with carrier-specific equipment.  This system offers a high degree of flexibility operationally for both the airport as well as the airlines.


  • All arrivals/gate positions are fully deployed.
  • Operational burn-in period has successfully passed.
  • Final fail-over testing will occurred mid November.
  • Air carriers are now providing final sign-off on installation.
  • Minor deficiencies are being addressed.
  • Work for Alaska Airlines and Air Transat will not be completed until they resume air service.

 With the exception of fail-over test, this project is substantially complete.
