Alicante, Spain, November 7, 2023: Ink Innovation, a travel technology provider, and NAS Colossal Aviation Services (NCAS), a ground handler, have partnered to help streamline NCAS’s handling processes. The agreement will help NCAS serve various airline customers at O.R. Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg, South Africa, using Ink’s Departure Control System.

The planned go-live will see NCAS using the system in daily operations within three weeks. Ink provides a multi-channel solution, enabling NCAS to use the Desktop and Mobile DCS across their operation – helping to enhance flexibility, simply load control calculation and allow passengers to check in online.

“In evaluating and selecting a DCS solution, we focussed on industry knowledge, committed support and value proposition. Ink DCS provided NCAS with all of this. Their approach to accommodating challenging implementation timelines is very professional. With Ink DCS, we can accommodate not only current but also future clients. Accessibility is key, and the Ink mobile solution will give us even more flexibility to better serve our customers,” said Pieter Calitz, IT Manager NAS Colossal Aviation Services.

The NCAS team will achieve faster time-to-value thanks to the short training requirements and ease of adoption of Ink DCS.

Our suite of innovative solutions will support NCAS’s long-term growth plans by helping deliver unrivalled experiences for passengers and making it easier for them to attract new airline customers,” said Blaine Powell, Chief Sales Officer, Ink.
