Abu Dhabi Airport upgrades baggage handling systems
Abu Dhabi Airports has announced the completion of the installation and renovation of Baggage Handling Systems at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. The work was carried out by Abu Dhabi Airports’ subcontractor Siemens Logistics and Airport Solutions.
The state-of-the-art baggage handling systems use highly innovative technology that guarantees smooth baggage flow and helps to deliver an enhanced passenger experience, the airport operator said in a statement.
The existing systems in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 have been expanded to include five new incline carousels, new conveyor connections and the respective control system adaptations. The high-speed systems will have a throughput capacity of more than 4,800 items of baggage per hour, the statement added.
The expansion and refurbishment is part of Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Capacity Enhancement Programme (CEP) that has been implemented to manage the increasing growth in passenger numbers ahead of the completion of the Midfield Terminal Building. Read More
