Enhancing efficiencies in your airport’s Baggage Handling Systems (BHS)

The efficiency of an airport’s Baggage Handling System (BHS) has a direct effect on passenger satisfaction and airport punctuality.

If your airport has complex baggage capacity issues, our team has the capability and experience to see the bigger picture; enhancing efficiency, reducing risk. We can identify efficiencies and solve growing challenges across your whole operation – from passengers and baggage to transit vehicles, ground support equipment and flights.

Why is baggage efficiency is so important?

The Benefits of CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing Systems) for Airports

Airports increasingly utilise common use systems for efficiency and ease of use, for employees and passengers like. These systems involve using the same equipment regardless of airline, whereas historically each airline would have their own designated check in desks and technical systems. With common use equipment, some (or all) airlines share this equipment. CUPPS (Common Use Passenger Processing Systems) was developed as a global standard to progress the use of this technology.

In our work with constrained airports worldwide we increasingly recommend common use systems to improve efficiency and increase capacity, using the CUPPS standard to ensure integrity and useability.

How can airport modelling and simulation help you visualise your airport

Within an airport there are many levels of stakeholders with varying degrees of responsibility. Whether it is the operations team, airlines, retailers, airport management or investors; everyone needs to clearly understand how their actions and decisions affect the airport holistically.

We work with saturated and constrained airports throughout the world to create simple and clear capacity models for effective decision making. We model or simulate at the level of detail that is appropriate for the audience, that Big Data can support and we aim to provide appropriate analysis and forecasts based on realistic assumptions and processes.

Why modelling and simulation?
