Backup DCS

Business Continuity for DCS Systems

Backup DCS from Damarel provides proven Airline Business Continuity for automated passenger check-in and boarding in the event of an outage of a primary DCS.

Airlines suffer a direct financial impact when a DCS failure occurs in terms of lost revenue, ticket refunds, compensation to passengers, re-flighting and the cost of delays. The impact on reputation and knock-on effect on other airport users can also be significant.

With B-DCS, passengers see no difference in the check-in process when the backup system is in use and boarding passes and bag tags continue to be printed in the format used by the primary DCS. Local data is collated for upload once the flight is finalised.

  • Offered with a range of options, from a hot standby system that can immediately take over a flight in the middle of check-in to a cold standby where B-DCS can start processing new flights, the system can be tailored to your operational needs.

    Damarel has been providing mission critical backup DCS systems for major airlines at international hubs since 1998, so you can depend on us to provide a system that keeps your business moving.
