New Passenger Screening technology on El-Al


AMSTELVEEN, Netherlands, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- ICTS International N.V. (NASDAQ:ICTS), a leading provider of advanced aviation services, today reported that it has signed a 5 year contract with El-Al airlines for installing the Advanced Passenger Screening software package on all flights arriving to Israel.

The Advanced Passenger Screening (APS) was designed to permit the pre-evaluation of passenger data by providing computer assistance in the Check-In process. This approach accelerates passenger handling at the gate, reduces the risk of delays, and permits flexibility in gate assignment. These improvements in passenger handling have been rapidly transformed into a reduction in aircraft departure delays for the airlines using the system, and improved quality of service for the passengers.

Commenting on this contract, Lior Zouker, President & CEO, said: "This contract with El-Al airlines is especially significant since El-Al has very high security demands. There is an expectation that the APS solution will be applied on at least 10,000 incoming flights per year in the first year with a significant increase during the year 2000. This contract is an important addition to similar 5-year contracts which have been signed previously with Northwest Airlines, Continental Airlines and Delta Airlines, and enhances ICTS's position as a global leader in the aviation services industry".

ICTS International N.V. is a leading provider of advanced aviation services. It operates primarily in Europe and the U.S., providing passenger handling related services to major carriers, serving both sides of the Atlantic. ICTS has offices in close to 90 airports, most of which are international gateways, and employs approximately 7000 people.
