Topic: Baggage Handling Process
Our experienced team of consultants, engineers, physicists and mathematicians work with architects throughout the many stages of conception, masterplanning, planning, design, construction and day-to-day operations when it comes to designing for airports.
Known as the RIBA Plan of Work, it’s the standard structure in which a project goes from client briefing and inception through to when the building is in use and the feedback stage. We employ different techniques at different times in order to work with architects, airports and contractors successfully, and have done so for many airports worldwide. Read More »
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?
Baggage Handling Systems (BHS) present a multitude of challenges to airports and their stakeholders. Whether you are a hub airport or not, the impact on baggage flow and passenger experience means that challenges in BHS must be tackled to maximise efficiency and capacity.
Increasing passenger numbers, as well as the passenger’s desire for greater control around baggage and check-in services also means a rise in self-service solutions, such as kiosks and bag-drops, now sitting alongside existing systems. As well as increasing capacity in-line with demand and offering passengers a better experience, they also provide challenges and opportunities for Baggage Handling Systems.

AiQ has worked closely to implement new technology at airports worldwide. There is a lot for airports, operators and airlines to understand and implement to be able to innovate and introduce future airports that enhance the passenger experience.
The second part of our two-part blog looks at more new technology that can be expected over the next few years in the aviation industry.

Airports are investing more and more into new technologies that enhance and improve the passenger journey, and for good reason. Not only do these new technologies increase efficiency, but passengers also have now come to expect these types of tech, from the Internet of Things (IoT) to biometrics to drones, as part of their daily lives.

It’s been another successful year for AiQ as we focused on issues critical to airports and airlines, cementing our reputation as a trusted partner in airport consultancy to worldwide operators, suppliers and stakeholders.
As we review the year we’ll look at our own team highlights, as well as our case studies, news and projects.
The Holistic Airport
Do you know enough about how baggage moves through an airport? What you can do to make the process quicker and easier for airlines, passengers and ground support suppliers?
We have been working with airports worldwide to help them realise the efficiencies created by the introduction of an effective and modern Baggage Handling Process.
