BAGgate

World Leaders in Common Use Bag Drop Solutions

BCS, with air transport communications and IT specialist, SITA, unveiled a comprehensive self-service baggage check-in solution for common-use platforms that provides passengers with total self-service with issue of boarding passes and bag tags at the self service check-in kiosk followed by a fully automated acceptance of the bags via the BCS BAGgate™.

Marc Michel, BCS General Manager Services and Solutions said the recent SITA self service survey showed 70% of passengers would tag their own bags if they could, and that BCS/SITA unique common use solution via BAGgate™ now delivered the missing links in unassisted bag drop to enable this.

With the BCS/SITA end to end self service solution passengers can check in at a kiosk for issue of boarding passes and now also bag tags printed for self tagging. Then they simply proceed to a self-service bag drop area where the BCS BAGgate™ automatically scans the bag tag ,reconciles the boarding pass and passenger, and then the bag is weighed, measured and dispatched for the flight without the need for agent intervention.

In anticipation of its Baggage Handling System upgrade, works on which have already commenced, Malta International Airport is conducting a series of exercises to ensure a seamless transition period, while also testing its preparedness in the event of baggage processing malfunctions.

While there is only a slim possibility of complete baggage processing malfunctions, MIA is conducting preparedness exercises, aimed at testing the robustness of the company's business continuity plan. These ensure that the airport team, stakeholders operating at the terminal and back-up infrastructures are fully equipped to handle such a situation in a way that causes minimal inconvenience to passengers.

The investment in a new state-of-the-art Baggage Handling System, supplied by industry leaders Daifuku Logan, will also be laying the groundwork for full compliance with the European Civil Aviation Conference's provision stipulating that by 2020 every European airport must possess a hold baggage screening capability that combines x-ray and computed topography technology.

The new Baggage Handling System will pave the way for the forthcoming installation of eight new check-in desks which will increase the airport's throughput and efficiency. This infrastructure project will also allow MIA to continue adding capacity in future expansion plans.

The BHS upgrade forms part of MIA's Terminal Reconfiguration project through which the company has invested €12m in infrastructural improvements with the aim of further enhancing its guests' airport experience.
