SCASPA Now Using Ideal’s Airport Management Information System
St Christopher Air & Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) have implemented a new Airport Statistical Management Information System (ASMIS) at Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport (RLBIA) to give them greater real-time information and management reporting.

- Billing calculations for ancillary airport services such as rentals and general service charges
- Production of IATA passenger schedules for recharging
