    <P><STRONG>What will check-in area of tomorrow look like? A bank of kiosks or a home computer?</STRONG></P> <P align=center><IMG alt="common vision" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=10797"></P> <P>Fly from Vancouver airport and instead of a line of check-in desks, you see 30 common-user self-service (CUSS) kiosks, a line of bag tag machines and five common-user bag drops. Is this how all airports will be in the future?</P> <P>You can also find kiosks at downtown locations, including hotels, stations and car rental offices.

    <p>The major ground handling groups have built global networks ready for wholesale outsourcing. But carriers have been slow to take up the opportunity</p> <p>Like a wave that is always about to break, the promised outsourcing revolution in ground handling seems to be a long time coming. Over the last few years a handful of major groupings such as Servisair/ GlobeGround, Swissport and Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) have set about building global handling empires, backed by major investment. But the global customers have largely failed to materialise.</p> <p>The theory was that handling would go the same way as the flight catering market, to become dominated by only a few global specialists.
